Camphill Village Minnesota (CVM) is a life-sharing, residential community of fifty people, including adults with disabilities. Our lives, work and celebrations are woven into the rhythms of nature found in the rolling hills, sparkling waterways, and prairie grasslands of Central Minnesota. Our community is deeply rooted in the belief that every individual, regardless of limitations, is an independent, spiritual being. Each person is part of the fabric of Community experience and is worthy of recognition, respect and honor. Website: http://www.camphillmn.org

WORK: Volunteers will assist in a variety of tasks including but not limited to: Assisting adults with developmental disabilities in their daily living activities in the home and managing crews in workplaces such as gardening, farming, cooking, food preserving, cleaning, woodworking, weaving, baking, or arts. The type of work and number of hours varies but is usually 5 – 10 hours per day. At least 5 hours per day will be spent in the workplace and another 3-5 hours per day in the home. Volunteers live on site and participate in all house activities including meals and all outside activities.

ACCOMMODATION: Volunteers (Coworkers) will live together family style in homes within the community. Each person has their own bedroom. All meals, hot showers, toiletries, linens & towels are provided. There is a fleet of vehicles that each person with a driver’s license is welcome to use.

LOCATION:. Sauk Centre is a small town in the heart of Minnesota. CVM is less than an hour from St. Cloud and Alexandria and about 2 hours from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

LEISURE ACTIVITIES: There is a rich social life within the community. During down time coworkers can be found doing yoga, group workouts, playing pool, canoeing, hiking the land, playing music/ singing, or going to the nearest town to see a movie at the theatre. Community members are able to go to larger cities on their days off. For year long Coworkers 3 weeks of vacation is offered.

TERMINAL:. You must send your arrival details to lindsey@camphillmn.org so we can arrange to meet you. Depending on
departure point, volunteers can fly directly to Minneapolis, Minnesota airport (MSP).


SPECIAL REMARKS: Volunteers are reminded that CVM is a shared living environment therefore it is recommended not to bring valuable items, unless absolutely necessary. Volunteers should ensure that they carry full insurance to cover both
themselves (medical) and their possessions, as this is not provided.

VISA INFORMATION: Regulations have changed and the US Department of State makes it very clear that
an invitation letter will not make a difference in whether you receive a visa or not. You must be sure you
meet and understand the requirements to get a visa before you apply to the project. Follow the link for
more information on visa requirements from your country.
