We are fortunate to get many returning staff members each summer and many of our returning staff members refer their friends. We also recruit on college campuses, through grad programs, and intentionally scour the community for the best of the best since we know there are folks who don't have the gift of going to college. We routinely end up with far more applicants than we have positions for so we get to be extremely selective. To bring more people from different corners of the country and world together we piloted a homestay option in 2017 so staff members get to know homes far from their own and and local staff and campers get to know friends from places they may have no other connection to. If you would like to learn more about being a homestay host please let me know.
