Salary & Benefits

Summer staff salaries at GYV are comparable to many U.S. summer camps.  Most people choose to work at GYV because of the experience, and the tremendous personal and professional growth people gain from being in the Village.  
All summer positions include housing and meals, limited medical and accident insurance, and weekly laundry service.
Staff also receive a modest salary, typically ranging between $225 – $425 / week (before taxes).  Salary is discussed during the interview process, and varies depending on the position and level of experience.  (Interns are also paid.)
Staff are responsible for transportation costs to and from Bedford. This is negotiable for those traveling from abroad or the U.S. west coast.  (If taking public transport, Legacy picks up staff from near-by airports (ROA or LYH), bus and train stations (in Lynchburg, Virginia.)
