Welcome Summer Staff 2023!

We cannot wait to see you soon! Below, you will find lots of details to help you prepare for a summer at camp – from travel options and onboarding paperwork to packing lists and camp addresses.

If you have any questions, you can email employment@alohafoundation.org.

 

Certification Week

Certification Week takes place in early June and offers the opportunity for staff to receive training specific to their role at camp. Not all staff attend Certification Week. Your employment offer lists the certifications needed for your role at camp and your start date was scheduled to ensure you’d be on campus for any necessary trainings. You’ll receive more information closer to the start of camp but if you have any questions about Cert Week, please email Tori Sumner, our Cert Week Coordinator.

 

 

Transportation

Staff are responsible for coordinating and paying for their own transportation. The Aloha Foundation can meet staff at local bus stations. We ask that everyone complete the Staff Travel Plans section of your onboarding.

Dartmouth Coach Bus

The Dartmouth Coach bus offers comfortable seating, wifi, a bathroom, and movies onboard. Luggage is allowed on the Coach. Our staff will meet you at the Lebanon bus stop. The Dartmouth Coach provides multiple buses each day to/from Logan Airport in Boston, MA. Tickets are transferrable so if your flight comes in late, you can hop on the next bus. From NYC, the Coach offers one option per day (not available on Tuesdays). <em>NYC bus tickets are not transferrable and must be booked in advance.</em> 

Greyhound Bus

Greyhound offers bus transportation from many U.S. cities to White River Junction, VT. Check the schedule online to see what is available from your location.
