Idaho is home to the newest wilderness areas in the nation: the Hemingway-Boulders, White Clouds, and Jim McClure-Jerry Peak Wilderness areas. If it weren't for the Magruder Corridor, the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness and Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness would make up the largest contiguous wilderness in the lower 48. Hell’s Canyon is North America's deepest river gorge at 7,993 feet. This region will become your new playground.

Cherry Gulch offers the wide-open space of country living and the benefit of a metropolitan area. The campus is located near Boise on 220 acres of pristine ranch land with beautiful views of mountains, valleys, Black Canyon Reservoir, and the Payette River. Students have easy access to natural wonders but are also close to many museums and the cosmopolitan activities of Boise.
Cherry Gulch is a small, privately owned and operated, high-end ranch style therapeutic boarding school, designed specifically for struggling 10 to 14 year old boys to reach their full potential and become well-rounded, pro-social young men. As a Direct Care staff member, you will be responsible for the care and safety of students while leading activities that include swimming, fishing, backpacking, rock climbing, hiking, horseback riding, river rafting, gardening, weekend learning trips, special events, international camping adventures, and helping with basic day to day chores, teaching healthy habits, and building the positive strengths within each student. This is an entry-level position, however, it requires many hours of training, flexibility, and willingness to learn and grow with the organization. A 1-year commitment is necessary with a 4 day on, 3 day off schedule. To apply, email a completed application and resume to Cole Sewall.
