Resident Staff

At Camphill Ghent, we have resident staff who live in the community and participate in care work, festival and cultural life, land work and other community tasks:

  • CARE WORK: Resident staff assist with personal care (activities of daily living) which also includes housekeeping, passing medication, and providing soul care through meaningful companionship and conversation.

  • CULTURAL AND FESTIVAL LIFE: Resident staff participate in our celebration of different cultural activities and multi-faith, multi-traditional events and festivities. Resident staff are involved in planning, implementing and participating in our cultural life.

  • LAND WORK: Resident staff care for our gardens. In the winter time, we help manage with outdoor tasks like snow removal.

As a resident staff member, you will be provided with either a studio or one-bedroom apartment and access to shared amenities with other coworkers. Your living costs will be covered with a monthly stipend and you will also receive health insurance.

All resident staff members are provided training to become certified as NY State home health aide.

We also welcome gap volunteers who are looking for short-term commitments of at least three months. This is ideal for high school seniors looking for a placement for their social internship, or recent graduates looking for a gap experience.
