Welcome! This application is for you if you are interested in being Staff, an Intern, or a Teen Staff at Sassafras.
Age requirements are as follows:
staff and interns 18 and up
Teen Leaders 15 and up (and that's depending on prior experience).
Teen Helpers ages 12-14 use a participant form.
Summer Staff and Interns can apply for glamping accommodations right here at Sassafras, provided they do not have summer housing on the island. Accommodations include tents on platforms, outdoor hot & cold shower, outdoor kitchen with fridge, and wifi. Living at Sassafras means that in addition to working in camp, you live mostly outdoors at Box Turtle camp, and have the responsibility to take good care of yourself (and that includes solid daily tick checks). Glampers need to be settled in by July 1.
Teen Staff works for 4 days a week (Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri) and is asked to enroll in the Teen Summer Series that takes place on Wednesdays with David. You can read more about that by going to the programs drop-down, and click teens.
BIPOC Preference: Sassafras gives preference in hiring to Indigenous people and POC as per our reparation policy and a way of giving back the Indigenous teaching we embrace. Additional preferences are any other people from historically often marginalized communities or ancestries.
