Our staff are inspired youth mentors dedicated to supporting each camper as they explore new passions, develop leadership skills, and awaken their sense of purpose and joy.

Our Staff

At Eden Village West our staff provide campers with an incredibly supportive experience. Our extremely low camper to staff ratio (1 to 1.5) ensures that camper’s health, safety, and emotional well-being are cared for at all times. Our staff are professionals who are dedicated to the camper’s experience throughout all moments of the day. Staff are chosen for their experience, maturity, enthusiasm, and commitment to campers’ growth.

Being a staff member at Eden Village West is hard work and is one of the most memorable and rewarding experiences you’ll ever have. Our staff community is strong, supportive, kind, creative, and fun. We seek enthusiastic and mission-aligned staff members to work from early-June to the end of July.
