Summer Job Current Openings

We have no current openings for Summer 2017.  Typicaly, Farm & Wilderness hires more than 230 seasonal employees as Cabin Counselors, Lifeguards, Cooks, Activity Area Heads (Barns and Gardens, Creative Arts, Rocks and Ropes, Work Projects, Outdoor Living Skills, and Waterfront), Wilderness Trip Leaders, Wilderness Trip Coordinators, Drivers, Nurses, Nurse’s Assistants, and Program Staff.  Spend your summer at one of our rustic, simple-living summer camps, where we focus on community, home grown fun and living closely with the natural world.  Working at Farm & Wilderness is an exciting learning opportunity for exceptional persons of all backgrounds.  Working side-by-side, staff guide campers through fun-filled, adventurous, and educational programs that change people’s lives—campers and staff alike!

Applicants should be conscientious, responsible, and community-minded people who value and enjoy working with children.

We accept applications for the summer season beginning in November until all positions are hired.  

In the summer of 2016, Farm & Wilderness replaced the Counselor in Training program with the introduction of the Junior Counselor position.  Junior Counselors can work at Timberlake or Indian Brook as Cabin Staff facilitating outdoor activities, mentor campers, and live in a community working alongside other exemplary counselors.

  • Support Farm & Wilderness values, respect the practices and be committed to the Junior Counselor program
  • Desire to work with children and learn outdoor leadership skills

Interested applicants for the limited Junior Counselor positions should contact Megan Chamberlain, Indian Brook Director ([email protected]) or Tulio Browning, Timberlake Director ([email protected]) and fill out a staff application.
