Job Opportunities

Job Openings--Be part of our Farm Camp Staff!

We are currently hiring instructors and counselors to be part of our Farm Camp staff! We are looking for energetic individuals who love kids, dirt, sunshine, and fresh vegetables. Farm camp runs from July 17th through September 1st. It is our preference to bring on a team who can commit to the full 7 weeks plus one full day the week prior to the start of camp for training and CIT programming. 

 

Counselors support campers in all of their daily needs, from helping them feel comfortable at drop off, to making sure they stay hydrated throughout the day, to supporting and encouraging budding friendships, to helping kids get their things together at the end of the day.  

 

Candidates must have experience working with or being with children, must be organized and energetic, and be able to engage with young children and direct CITs. Candidates who are interested in pursuing a teaching career or working in a related field are encouraged to apply. This position is 36 hours a week on-site with opportunities for additional hours running our before and after care programs. 

 

To apply, please send your resume, cover letter, and three references to Sember Weinman at sember@commongroundfarm.org. 

 

Instructors develop the programming for our morning and afternoon sessions. Our instructors are able to effectively and joyfully teach groups of 12 campers about nature, food, farming, art, and animals. Our campers range in age from 3 to 12. Instructors with experience working with preschool-aged children is particularly valuable. Educators who can bring a special talent to share with the camp community--such as musical ability, artistic creativity, love of the outdoors, etc. is a plus. 

 

Candidates must have teaching experience with a variety of ages, ability to write dynamic, experiential-based lesson plans, and an ability to work together as a team with our farm crew, the other instructors, CITs and our counselors.  The position includes 36 hours on-site plus 4 hours each week to plan and prep for lessons. A one-week visiting instructor position is also available to work with our 10-12 year olds for our STEM week. 

 

To apply, submit a resume and cover letter, three references, and a sample lesson plan to Sember Weinman at sember@commongroundfarm.org. 

 

Our farm is an equal opportunity employer. All candidates, regardless of race, gender, age, or sexual orientation, are encouraged to apply.
