Work Study

Bridge students will work alongside camp staff at Barefoot Republic Camp approximately 15-20 hours per week, which is used to offset the overall cost of the program to cover part of their tuition expense. This also can offer hands-on experience, provides lifeguard certification, High Ropes training, leadership development, and is a lot of fun!
