    Location: Between Los Gatos and Santa Cruz, CA

    This is our newest Covid-prepared daycamp program, a children's sanctuary from the modern world, located within 20-acres of wild redwood forest. Each Naturalist/Mentor gets their own territory to build a basecamp with 12 kids, (mostly ages 9 to 11). Students attend 6-hours daily on summer weekdays. And during the school year, you will have students noon to 4:30pm.

    Are you a role-model of traditional tool skills, safe practices, good character, mindfulness, and deep nature connection? Tribal Wisdom Academy is hiring Mentors who strive to be Naturalists, Teachers, Wildwood Crafters, and safe Adventurers with amazing kids.

    See our Camp Video page to explore human childhood in action:

    Tribal Wisdom Academy is based on the tribal skills and extreme wilderness experiences of Naturalist/Director Ben Walker. Please call Claire Walker on weekday evenings or weekends to ask questions. Then fill out our easy online application. See the Apply Here button.

    Working directly for kindly camp owners is one of the best job opportunities out there. Ben and Claire are committed to valuing your talents and your career development.

    Compensation Information:

    At least $16/hr, or likely the dollar amount that is comparable to your last job if it was working with children in the forest.

    Positions are open now, and also in mid-July through the school year

    Room rentals are possible with our current staff of 15 Summer Camp Mentors who live in the South San Francisco Bay Area.

    Please call Claire for details.
