More than just a job...

Working at Runoia can be a life-altering experience: “Runoia truly changed my life for the better in so many ways. It made me believe in myself after spending years of doing mediocrely in school and helped me become one of the most independent people I know.”

"I strongly believe, if someone is able, they should do everything they can to work at camp."

Emma, Runoia staff alumna

Our Runoia Mission is “Building lifelong skills and empowering campers and staff to live in harmony with themselves, each other, and with nature.”

My experiences at camp encourage me to break out of my comfort zone. At Runoia, there are innumerable opportunities to acquire skills, try out activities, and interact with strangers that will become lifelong friends. It can be scary, especially for a shy person like myself, to break out of one’s normal, comfortable routine. Runoia offers an environment that encourages growth, and I can say that this has made an enormous difference in both my personal life and career.” – Rachel
