Seasonal Support Staff – Off Season are integral to the day to day operations at Emandal in the fall, winter and spring. Our Family Camp, Group Rentals and Events programs are centered around food and the kitchen, but rely on having a cozy, comfortable camp experience, too, as well as a farm and forest environment that is accessible and understandable.
