Spend your summer at one of F&W’s simple-living camps, where you’ll focus on community, home grown fun and living closely with the natural world! Each year, over 230 staff members are hired for seasonal work, with positions that include camp counselors, senior support staff, activity heads (waterfront, barns & gardens, outdoor living skills, service projects & more), carpenters, cooks & kitchen staff, drivers, farmers, gardeners, maintenance workers, nurses, outdoor educators, special event coordinators, trip leaders and more.
Farm and Wilderness (F&W) is a non-profit organization running eight Quaker-based summer camps and educational programs on a beautiful 500-acre campus on the shores of Woodward Reservoir. Our programs are rich in adventure, community, history and spirit, and foster an individual relationship with the natural world. While each camp provides unique activities based on age and interests, all are shaped by Quaker principles and the common belief that individuals and communities are strengthened by justice, honesty, self-reliance, diversity and respect for all persons.
Timberlake (TL) and Indian Brook (IB) are F&W’s largest camps, offering a wide range of programs: barns and gardens, creative arts, outdoor living skills, carpentry and work projects, wilderness trips, and more. Flying Cloud (FC) and Indian Brook- Red Spruce Grove (IB- RSG) focus on simple woodcraft and primitive-living skills and Saltash Mountain (SAM) provides travel and wilderness challenges. Tamarack Farm (TF) emphasizes service, farm and work projects and Questers offers a longer wilderness challenge in a dynamic small-group program. And for the youngest campers, the Barn Day Camp (BDC) offers day programming, which includes swim lessons, arts and crafts, nature and trip skills, building projects and
many other great adventures!
