Job Description:

Educators in the Outdoor Environmental Education Program at YMCA Camp Colman work to create an inclusive, low-risk environment in which individuals are empowered to discover their unique talents and strengths and encouraged to share those with their peers, their community and the environment.  Educators teach a diverse student population in a variety of classes focused in Challenge Education, Environmental Sciences and Outdoor Skills.  In addition to facilitating programming for our residential students and weekend groups, educators also have opportunities for professional development through creating passion projects, working in our organic garden, writing curriculum, feeding the animals at our Marine Center and participating in trainings for various industry certifications.  Members of our community wear many hats including cleaning and maintenance and have the privilege of modeling responsibility, respect, honesty and caring in our day to day tasks.  Educators receive a daily stipend (DOE) in addition to room and board in communal housing located on our beautiful 110 acre forested, beach-front property located on the Puget Sound.  Educators begin mid-February 2017 and commit through mid-June 2017.  Applicants should have experience working with youth, a passion for the sciences and the outdoors, a degree or experience in a related field and a philosophy of inclusion and equity when working with diverse populations.
