Joining as an Intern or Camp Counselor
Come join our team! The Children’s Program division of the Place Based Learning Center offers an environment where children, teachers, interns and farmers live, work, and learn together. The rhythms of nature and farm life take children beyond the classroom. Awakening to the environment, children rediscover the joys of learning and working together. Students experience the true ecology of living relationships through the Visiting Students Program and our Summer Camps.
