Would you love to become a Camp Counselor and help us teach kids about nature? Are you between the ages of 15 and 18? If so, you have an incredible opportunity to join our Education Team and become a Counselor this summer!
Learn valuable leadership skills and begin a career in the field of Environmental Education. After this four-day training, you will be able to sign up as a Counselor for a minimum of 3 weeks this summer. Get an introduction to the art of tracking, birding and wilderness awareness. Learn the tricks of the Environmental Education trade, including storytelling, camp songs and fun outdoor games. By the end of the program, you will have the tools you need to become an excellent and effective Camp Counselor. This program is selective and based on experience. We love to have former campers back as counselors!
