Job Description:

We are seeking to fill a position that is perfect for pre-service teachers and education majors. The Assistant Camp Director will work closely with the Camp Director to ensure a great camp experience for all campers and parents. You will be introduced to field trip planning, and will likely have some outdoor fun yourself.

Perfect for pre-service teachers and education majors: this summer position will provide you with relevant experience, meaningful connections, and an introduction to field trip planning and logistics. Green Valleys Watershed Association is looking for an Assistant Camp Director for our summer nature day camp. Our camp serves children from ages 4 to 15 from a wide geographic area, and covers a multitude of nature-based topics.

The ideal candidate is passionate about environmental education, has experience educating children of middle school age, and can adapt to challenges, such as filling-in as a counselor for other age groups. Camp runs during the work weeks of June 20th to August 12th; you must also be available for training during the week of June 6th.

This job will require you to work with the Watershed Educator (i.e. Camp Director) to ensure safe, fun, and educational field trips, overnight events, and regular camp days. Typical days on Green Valleys’ 224 forested acres consist of hiking, stream exploration, crafting, nature study, and educational games. We train all of our counselors before camp, and have a history of developing successful educators. As this is a senior role, at times, you may be asked to provide guidance to younger counselors (i.e. teaching about teaching).

Successful candidates are in good academic standing at their college or university, are first aid and CPR certified, and are outdoors-inclined. Green Valleys’ headquarters is located at the Welkinweir Estate in East Nantmeal Township, PA.
