Seasonal Educator for Summer Day Camps - Audubon Vermont/Green Mountain Audubon Center

The Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington seeks experienced teachers, environmental educators, and naturalists to lead our nature day camps. The Seasonal Educator will work with 3- to 5-year-old and 6-to-12-year-old children as they explore the forests, brooks, meadows, and ponds on the Center’s 255 acres. Each week of camp focuses on a different theme and all campers get the chance to search for wildlife, make crafts, go on hikes, play games, and hone their nature awareness skills.

As we continue to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic, we still expect to implement practices to keep campers and staff safe, healthy, and well. Staff will be trained on practices that support camp-wide health. Additionally, Seasonal Educators will be responsible for teaching outdoors all summer, developing camp activities and curriculum, and working effectively as part of a dynamic camp team. The Seasonal Educator will be responsible for communicating and working effectively with the entire camp team, which includes: other seasonal educators, an education intern, Audubon’s year-round staff, and high-school Counselors-in-Training, who will look to the seasonal educators as mentors.

Staff will work at both our Preschool Nature Camp (PNC) and Ecology Day Camp (EDC)--your time will probably not be evenly divided-- and should feel comfortable doing so. Educators will share the role throughout the summer of coordinating the weekly and daily logistics for campers at either PNC or EDC. Audubon will challenge you to enhance your leadership, teaching, and mentoring skills while encouraging you to share the wonder of exploring the most magical places at the Green Mountain Audubon Center.

Camp runs for 8 weeks, June 20 – August 11. There are six days of paid professional development and naturalist training prior to the start of camp. This is a full-time, seasonal opportunity with an estimated 40-hour work week.
