Do you love to cook? The Camphill School is seeking volunteers to cook lunch for our students and community members on weekdays. Our students enjoy a homecooked meal each day in one of the many residential homes on our campus. All meals are organic using fresh ingredients - some of which are even grown at our operational farm! Volunteers plan the menu with the houseparent and all ingredients are provided.
Volunteers are needed once a week Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm on a consistent basis for the 2022-2023 school year (September 6-June 23.)
Orientation and training will be provided; background checks and clearances are required.

About The Camphill School

Mission Statement

The Camphill School’s mission is to create wholeness for children and youth with developmental disabilities through education, extended family living, and therapy so that they may be better understood, they may more fully unfold their potential, and they may meaningfully participate in life.

Description

Serving children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, The Camphill School is a licensed and approved private school that offers individualized education and therapy in an extended family setting. We offer residential and day academic and prevocational programs, as well as therapeutic care, for children in kindergarten through grade twelve. We also offer a Transition Program for young people ages eighteen to twenty-one. Our educational and vocational programs focus on bringing the arts and academics to life, weaving hands-on activities with skill building.

The Camphill ideal is to engage all the members of each community in meeting their own needs, as well as those of the community at large, to whatever extent their abilities allow. With heavy emphasis on experiential learning, the students learn academics in engaging ways. They learn how to play the piano, recorder, or hand bells; they stage concerts, dramatic performances, and elaborate puppet shows. They help with costumes and construct sets. Students here partake in woodworking, weaving, pottery, sewing, and gardening. The student run Beaver Farm produces all the beef, pork, chicken, and eggs needed by The Camphill School. They also learn food processing and cater meals with the produce they grow.
