Thanks for taking the time to learn more about what it means to be a member of the Sherwood Forest staff. Year after year, dozens of our seasonal staff members return to Sherwood Forest, which becomes their “home away from home” each summer. In addition to our returning staff, we always look forward to hiring outstanding new staff members who bring with them fresh energy, perspective, and ideas.
What do we look for in our seasonal staff? The list of qualifications, character, traits, and areas of expertise is long, but ultimately we look for staff members who are friendly and compassionate, reliable and responsible, creative and patient, supportive and respectful, dedicated and committed, and understanding and caring. Our staff must have initiative and enthusiasm, energy and a positive attitude, maturity, and sensitivity. While Sherwood Forest’s staff members come from a wide range of life experiences and demographics, all must have the desire to work with children and a willingness to totally immerse themselves into camp life.
Our seasonal staff members are mature and responsible, yet still “young at heart” and ready to give our campers the best Sherwood Forest experience possible.
