EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITIES

We’re looking for men to step into leadership roles for both the preparation and the running of 3HO Men's Camp.

Full Exchanges allow you to participate in the camp at no cost and Partial Exchanges reduce the registration cost to $300 CAD (approximately $225 USD). Exchanges provide an excellent opportunity to develop your skills and give you an experience of working with other men in a conscious way. Accepting an exchange position may mean that you won’t be able to participate in all of the workshops and other activities.

We're currently accepting applications for the following roles:
