The Camphill Association of North America
The Camphill communities in North America are independent organizations, incorporated in their own states and provinces and guided by their own Boards of Directors. The common mission of Camphill led the communities to create an organization enabling them to learn from one another, join in activities of mutual benefit, and oversee the development of new communities that wish to be recognized as a part of Camphill.
This organization, the Camphill Association of North America, represents all the communities, sponsors a coworker recruitment effort for the North American region, endorses “initiatives” – i.e., communities seeking Camphill status — and meets quarterly. The Camphill Association works closely with the Camphill Foundation to benefit the North American communities.

Coworker Development Office
To aid in the coordinated recruitment, training, and retention of people needed to staff the Camphill communities in North America, the Camphill Association and the Camphill Foundation joined in establishing a professional support unit, the Coworker Development Office. This office provides technical and technological assistance to the Camphill administrative staff responsible for coworker recruitment, and it administers Camphill’s participation in the AmeriCorps program, a significant source of volunteers for Camphill communities in the U.S.
This office is currently headquartered at Camphill Hudson, use our Contact Us page to get in touch if you are interested in applying to become a coworker!
