The Summer Camp
The Summer Camp program is a day camp run on weekdays for children ages 4 to 14. Counselors must be age 18 or over by July 9. You would be required to work 8AM to 3PM each day. There are opportunities for extra hours each day. Weekend work is also available.
Catholic Formation Opportunities: The camp is run for the general public and it's curriculum is centered around farming and fun recreation. However, there are Catholic Formation Activities available for all counselors, whether they are Catholic or not. Activities include Adoration, Daily Mass, Formation Talks, Webinars Regarding the Holy Land and Other Topics. (Holy Land Dollars are paid during formation activities as well as during farm work.)
Residential and Commuter Work options are available. You are more than welcome to live on the farm in group housing designated for men and women separately. There is no additional cost for housing as long as you agree to work to keep the facilities clean and organized. Board is also provided for free as long as you participate in a schedule to cook and clean up for counselor meal sessions.
