Staff FAQ

Working at Eden Village West is a rewarding and unique experience. Each day our staff change the lives of our campers. Our staff is a strong, close-knit community who love waking up each morning at camp. If you love working with kids and being part of a team, you’ll love working at Eden Village West!

At a minimum you need to be at least 18 years old, graduated high school, have experience working with youth, and excited to work at camp! Many staff positions require additional certifications and training.

That’s great! You can mark down which positions you’re interested in when you fill out your staff application. Once we receive your application, we’ll be in touch with you about which positions we think are the best fit.

Now! Staff applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Most positions are filled by mid-January. In late-January we will update the staff page to reflect which positions are still open.

Camp is located on 350 acres in Healdsburg, California, about 70 miles north of San Francisco. We have a private stretch of the Russian River, an outdoor pool, miles of hiking trails, a teaching kitchen and bakery, woodshop, ceramics studio, outdoor amphitheater and fire circles, a large gym with basketball courts, and outdoor playing fields.

Camp is just two miles from downtown Healdsburg, ~12 miles from Santa Rosa, ~20 miles from the Pacific Ocean, and near countless state parks.

The majority of our staff live in dorm rooms with other staff members. Bunk staff live in rooms adjacent to the rooms of the campers in their age group. Our dorms are equipped with electricity, internet, bathrooms, showers, laundry, and a staff lounge.

Every staff member receives a day off each week to rest, rejuvenate, and build community with other staff. Break time for each staff is built into the daily schedule.

Dear Friend,

It’s become clear that now, more than ever, our campers need the love and community of Eden Village West. That’s why we are committed to opening camp for Summer 2021, with whatever precautions are required to ensure the safety of all our children and staff.

The degree to which camp is a precious and powerful gift to our children is increasingly apparent every day – a Jewish community rooted in kindness, nature connection, and creative living where our children can be the most vibrant and thriving versions of themselves

I don’t know all the details of what camp will look like next summer or how COVID-19 will impact our community, but the safety of your children is the most important thing. There are still many details we are working out for the summer and we will keep you informed every step of the way.

I’m so grateful to be in partnership with you as we re-build Eden for 2021!

With care,

Casey

Camp Director
