Help create an experience for our campers that is both magical and transformative! Working at F&W provides the opportunity to learn and practice problem solving in real time while being a part of a supportive community. Operating on nearly 5,000 acres of forestland in the Green Mountains of Vermont, F&W programs are rich in adventure, community, history, and spirit and foster an individual relationship with the natural world. 

While each camp and initiative provide unique programs based on age and interests, all F&W activities 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.
