Job details: The Battle Creek Outdoor Education Center, Clear Lake Camp, is looking for a male instructor to complete our team of 13 male and female instructors for the fall season. Outdoor Education Instructors lead 5th and 6th grade students during 3 to 5 day camps. The ideal instructor is comfortable leading games, teaching outdoor skills, processing team initiatives, teaching basic ecology, and generally being a leader to students. Training on specific curriculum is provided. All instructors also spend a few weeks each season as dormitory leaders, supervising either the boys or girls dorm for a week instead of daytime teaching duties. Our instructors provide 24 hour supervision to students by working in teams and shifts. A typical work day lasts about 10 hours, with time-off to chill in your cabin or run to town each morning or evening. All instructors are trained to lead all activities, from running a meal to supervising dorms at night to low ropes to predator-prey games and so much more!

- Experience working with children required. Prefer classroom, camp, and/or outdoor education experience.
