NOW HIRING - Counselor for Camp Bread & Butter

January 18, 2016

Camp Bread & Butter is seeking counselors for summer 2016! Camp Bread and Butter is a summer camp situated at the beautiful Bread and Butter Farm in the Champlain Valley. You will spend five weeks with us Monday through Friday working to create a fun-loving, creative, energizing, challenging, and inspiring week for our campers! We work with campers ages 5-12, offering a slightly separate half-day program for our youngest campers, ages 5-7.

We have designed an experience centered around rhythm and routine with an equal emphasis on flexibility and adapting to the energy of a given moment. Our days are full with the workings of a farm, land-based interaction, and community/leadership training. What this means, in a nutshell, is that our campers do everything from archery, harvesting vegetables, making pesto and homemade ice cream, playing large games of Capture the Flag wearing naturally-dyed bandanas, singing, learning the art of fire building, exploring woodlands and fields, taking on daily farm chores, feeding and interacting with our animals, learning to run a farm stand, and much more.

While our camp is designed to be fun and to work with campers’ passions, we equally value teaching through role modeling what it is to be a thoughtful and compassionate member of a community and how to respect the land.

We expect our staff to help each child understand their vital role at camp and to positively embrace each child’s unique spirit. Everyone at Camp Bread & Butter should be able to find comfort and acceptance while being given the opportunity to push themselves to try new things and feel proud of who they can be. We hold each and every individual accountable for their actions.

You roles will vary from collaborating during morning staff meetings, designing and implementing your own courses to lead, supporting campers in their activities, leading large & epic group games, and tuning into the structure and rhythm that our camp days follow.

You will need a basic understanding of First Aid and need to be at least 18 years of age.

NOW HIRING - Head Counselor for Camp Bread & Butter

January 18, 2016

Camp Bread and Butter is a summer camp situated at beautiful Bread and Butter Farm in the Champlain Valley. In our third year now, we are searching for a passionate, self-driven, dedicated individual who is excited to deepen a program that is in its earlier stages. This program has huge momentum and is on its way to growing into something dear to our community.

We are looking for someone who will possess a deep care and interest in our campers. This individual may be able to offer their own sets of outdoor/survival/wilderness skills, crafts, etc. or is sincerely eager to practice and learn some! We offer camp to kids ages 5-12 and, depending on enrollment, will be offering a slightly separate half-day program for the youngest campers (5-7).

We are looking for someone who has a drive to excite kids to become the best they can be for themselves and their peers.

We are looking for someone to collaborate with us in order to not only create a FUN camp, but perhaps more importantly, a camp that instills moral values, sparks philosophical inquiries, and establishes earth-based connection for our campers and staff. While our camp days are structured around a set of core routines and patterns, at their foundation is the importance of adapting to the energy of the moment and being flexible.

We are deeply committed to creating a genuine and strong sense of community and we seek someone who can help us bring this to life. We want kids to be able to show up to camp and feel that they belong and have a deep responsibility to its wellbeing.
There’s a fine line between disciplining and talking down to a camper and we are dedicated to gracefully developing a space where the behavioral expectations and the core foundations we’ve laid are so deeply ingrained that disciplining is minimal.

We seek goofiness, creativity, and the ability to bring positive energy to the land, the campers, and the farm each day. At times you’ll need to be active and energizing, sometimes spontaneous, sometimes calm and meditative. We hope you’ll have an interest in wilderness education/skills, have first aid training, and be ready to be on a hard-working farm.
