Work With Us Explore With Us The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation is a public non-profit organization formed by a multi-million dollar gift from Harold Schafer and his family, whose love for Medora began to impact the little Badlands town in 1962. Today, we operate history, education, and entertainment venues that allow the traveling public to be inspired by the Badlands the way Theodore Roosevelt and Harold Schafer were.
Over 350 seasonal team members come to Medora each year to help make unforgettable attractions have a personal touch for the traveling guests. Many of our former summer staff have told us the same thing: their summer in Medora was the #BestSummerOfMyLife.
