Know Someone Who Wants To Spend All Summer On The Trail?

Cross Vermont Trail Association

Know someone who might be itching to run away and join the trail crew next summer?

We’re signing folks up now who want to work in June, July or August.

The Cross Vt Trail Americorps Outdoor Leadership and Land Stewardship position is a chance to spend 3 months making a real difference in the world that you can see, while earning money for college. Apply through our partner organization the Vermont Housing and Conservation Board (there’s a link to the app at

Or, for as little as a week, join a back country “volunteer vacation” crew. You can register through our partner organizations Volunteers for Peace and the American Hiking Society. Or LOCAL FOLKS – give us a call directly to find about joining in with the crew. Meet people from all over the country and the world, and hone those technical trailbuilding chops.

Thanks for spreading the word to people you think might be interested (perhaps a nearby teenager, pretending to act sulky, but really just looking to be taken seriously?) These are great “gateway” opportunities for people wanting to develop their camping, trail building or outdoor leadership skills. Maybe you know someone looking to add to their college resume? We write great references! (But not till next Fall when the work is all done.)

Spend a week, a month, or all summer helping out on the trail!
