Seasonal Staff FAQs

Whether we can use your vocal talents (yes), what your duties might be, and additional answers.

The mission of Flying Horse Farms is to enrich the lives of children with serious illnesses and their families by providing magical, transforming fun through medically-safe, cost-free camping experiences.

Seasonal staff members provide regular support to full-time staff, volunteers and campers. Each year, we rely on short-term staff members, paid and unpaid interns and part-time employees to help keep camp up, running, squeaky clean and environmentally green. These team members know camp inside and out, as they are at camp the duration of the summer season.

Seasonal staff members are expected to be at camp for every Family Camp weekend. Although arrival and departure dates may vary, all seasonal staff members can expect to be at camp about every other week-end from the end of May to the end of August. Of course, we understand that you may have commitments, etc. throughout the summer. If you have any known commitments, be sure to specify these when you fill out the application.

We have the following program and medical positions available.

Seasonal staff members are responsible for providing their own transporta-tion to and from camp, however, on-site parking will be available.

We try to keep camp low-tech so our campers are focused on exploring and having fun. You can bring your cell phone, but we would love if you try not to use it. Computers and valuable items should be left at home. We have computers at camp, but only for emergencies or quick use.

Seasonal staff members expected to be at camp Friday through Sunday will have housing accomodations. They will be housed in individual rooms in the Big Red Barn with a full bathroom and queen-sized bed. Seasonal staff members will eat breakfast in their room, and lunch and dinner in assigned shifts. A toaster, microwave, and minifridge will be provided in your room. Accommodations include heat and air conditioning. Towels, linens and bedding are provided.
