Camp Fareta Work Exchange

Camp Fareta needs you! We need your help to make camp run smoothly, and several kinds of work-exchange positions are available. Most entail working in the dining hall, setting up for meals and cleaning up after meals, and there are some positions available in Kids Camp. We also need help setting up camp (starting the morning of the first day) and cleaning up at the end (which might entail staying late the last day or missing classes that morning and possibly staying overnight until the next day). Most jobs will be 3-4 hours per day and will involve missing some class time. Kitchen work will be compensated at $13/hour off the camp fee for new campers and $15/hour for returning work-exchange campers. Kids Camp counselors get a bigger discount but also miss more class time. Please note it’s easiest for us to put you in the work-exchange schedule if you will be attending the entire camp, or at least will be there starting the first day or leaving the last day.

Also folks doing "full-time" work-exchange are eligible for a $50 bonus at the end of camp. This means you do set-up and take-down in addition to working at least a couple of hours every day of camp.

Please email (even if you've done work-exchange in the past) with information about your experience working with children or in a commercial kitchen, or if you have a lifeguard certification, nursing degree, first aid training, or other special skills or resources you can bring to camp, and any other information you think would be helpful for us to know. Also let us know what dates you are available to be at camp and whether you could arrive early on the first day of camp and/or stay late at the end. And if you have a large vehicle and are a good driver, let us know -- we could give you a job driving the shuttle!
