The Green Mountain Audubon Center in Huntington seeks experienced teachers, environmental educators, and naturalists to lead our nature day camps.
The Lead Seasonal Educator will work with 3- to 5-year-old and 6- to 12-year-old children (and new this year, one week of 13 to 16-year-old campers!) 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. New this year, our campers will be supported by both Lead Seasonal Educators and Seasonal Educators. This position is excellent for an experienced educator who is interested in taking on more responsibility as a leader and mentor at camp.
