  • College Loan Grant Announcement

    Got College Loans?

    With Camphill’s College Loan Support Program, They Don’t Have To Be A Barrier To Volunteering

    Camphill College Loan Support Program Info for Potential Volunteers:

    A recently created College Loan Support Program makes life a bit easier for Camphill volunteers with college debt.

    Your debt obligations shouldn’t keep you from enjoying the life-changing benefits of a volunteer year.

    For as long as you are a Triform volunteer, we will cover 100% of your monthly loan payments.*

    When you apply to Triform Camphill Community, let us know about your college loans. When you accept a position, we’ll get you enrolled in our program so your payments get made. On time. By us.

    All eligible applicants will be approved for this program.

    An eligible applicant is someone who:

         • Is a volunteer in a Camphill Association of North America member community

        • Is committed to a full year of service

        • Is a U.S. citizen … OR

        • Is a Canadian citizen serving in a Canadian community

        • Has higher education debt from an accredited community college, four-year college, or graduate program

    In addition to loan repayment assistance, Triform ensures that every volunteer’s basic living needs get covered by the community. This means you receive a monthly stipend, a private room in a beautiful environment, wholesome, mostly organic meals, medical insurance, and other essentials – from toiletries to use of a community car.

    Those are just the tangible benefits . . .

    Camphill volunteers grow faster than they imagined possible, build deep, lasting relationships, and develop practical and creative skills that open doors for the rest of their lives.


    *Up to $500/month.

    Triform Camphill Community invites you to join us for “The Water is Wide”, a special evening of music featuring Jonatha Brooke.  The Triform Bell Choir will also perform.   
    For more than two decades Jonatha Brooke has created shining musical gems – brilliant combinations of poetic lyrics, complex harmonies and memorable melodies – that have earned her legions of devoted fans and journalistic raves as a highly respected artist. With ten solo releases (and two from her duo The Story) to her credit, her most recent endeavor was writing and performing the one-woman musical My Mother Has 4 Noses. The critically acclaimed project—which ran in NYC at The Duke on 42nd Street— documents the poignant journey of caring for her mother, who was in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s-induced dementia, during the last two years of her life.
    Another notable project was 2008’s The Works, a collection of songs written after being invited into Woody Guthrie’s archives by his daughter. Jonatha combed through previously unseen lyrics of Woody’s, edited, pared, and set them to her own new music, creating a stunning collection of songs. Currently Jonatha, who lives in Minneapolis, is touring her recently released CD Midnight. Hallelujah., working on three new musicals, and plans on performing more dates of 4 Noses in various cities.
    All proceeds this year will support and strengthen programs for students with special needs at Triform. This year we are very pleased to have the generous support of an anonymous donor who has offered a challenge match of $75,000!  All tickets, sponsorships and advertisements will be matched at a 1:1 rate!  Please join us for this very special evening and immediately double your support of Triform!
