Merrowvista staff work directly with youth and facilitate experiential education programs for participants of different ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Staff have an immersive living experience by sharing a home and workplace with their fellow facilitators.

We seek to inspire our staff to discover and develop their personal best and create an environment where they can explore their own gifts and learn skills as competent leaders in their careers.

Internet provided. Meals provided when program is onsite.

Employee Perks

Camp tuition discount and/or onsite childcare is available for dependents.
