At Island Roots, we believe that our staff are the true foundation of our quality programming. Despite the challenges of running a local, small-business, Island Roots believes in paying fair wages.
Although most camps will get waivers from the state so they can pay less than minimum wage, Island Roots does not. Camp staff earn an hourly wage equal to or higher than the Massachusetts minimum wage.
The education and childcare industries are known for paying low wages, even to highly-qualified employees. Island Roots works hard to ensure our staff earn wages higher than market value for their positions.
We also have a generous staff discount! Island Roots staff receive 50% - 100% off programming for their children enrolled in our programs.
