Work Periods

FULL-TIME: (Full-time staff work 40 hours a week, receive a $50/week stipend, and are housed in a dorm room. They fill the key positions and therefore we need people who can stay for the full season. Depending on the position, full-time staff start in April and continue through October.

PART-TIME: (Part-time staff work 30 hours a week, do not receive a stipend, and bring a tent to camp. They fill the support roles which are essential for the campus to function. You may sign up for one, two, or all three part-time work periods, but preference is given to those who can stay for more than one work period.) If you work all 3 work periods, you receive a complimentary catalog workshop plus platform tent site.

If neither of these options are possible for you, we do have a limited number of short term (two week minimum), part-time only positions available. If you are interested in being considered for one of these openings, please check off your availability below.

Please note: The earliest arrival date is in April and the season ends in late October.
