Staff & Hiring

Todd Barnett, pictured here with 3 of his 4 camp-aged children, has been Field Camp’s Owner and Director since its start in 2000. He used to spend his summers at camp while teaching the rest of the year, and then while running Field School, a local boys middle school he founded in 2007. His off-seasons nowadays are consumed with camp duties, his family, and an initiative to promote Outdoors Civic Education. He and his wife Meredith Montague (who is often seen helping out with driving and other duties around camp) and their family live in Charlottesville.

The 2021 Staff (many of whom are pictured above, with the number of years they have been at Field Camp):  Aidan Folger (10), Andy Goodstein (5), Emma Bennett-McConnell (9), Redford Fisher (4), Neva Boyd (7), Camden Miller (9), Robert Stetkevych (6), Henry Sours (14), Stewart Morris (13), Catherine Wilkerson (19), Oliver Armstrong (12), Jack Riley (16), Thatcher Healy (12), Duncan Healy (12), Caroline Grist (9), Kathryn Lenert (8), Jack Helmke (11), Sam Bowers (10), Fran Caruccio (9), Zoe Kershner (8), and Jack Intihar (4).  The staff includes local teachers and students attending Brown University, VCU’s Education School, Stanford, Virginia Tech, UVA, Charlottesville HS, Western Albemarle HS, Albemarle HS, Miller School, and Tandem Friends.  

If you are interested in being a part of the staff, please write Todd at and send a resume. We generally have enough younger staff, but are usually interested in hiring older counselors with teaching or outdoors experience. For the Summer of 2024, we are interested in hiring one or more staff to work in our new residential camp, including a seasonal camp nurse and assistant director. If you would like a well paying and fun summer job in the outdoors, let us know.
