Day Camp Coordinator

Get back to your roots and learn the philosophy of living close to nature, wilderness survival, and nurture your connection to the earth. We will explore the surrounding forests and streams as we build natural shelters, make fires without matches, and prepare wild plants for food. We hire folks that are outgoing, fun, positive minded, responsible, competent, personal growth oriented, team players, open communicators and ready to dive into the adventure of camp and make the most of it. This is not your ordinary camp experience.  Each team member gets personalized training in survival skills and how to be an effective nature mentor. Our aim is to see the light in each person, camper or staff, and help inspire their passions and gifts. If you're ready to grow and learn a lot about yourself, how to be an effective mentor, and to deepen your connection with the earth, then please get in touch with us. Despite the difficulties of the times, we successfully ran camps in 2020, 2021 as well as year-round programming. We feel we have found a rhythm with our COVID policies which allow the kids to still be kids, outside & together.
