Current Openings: 

Lead Seasonal Education, Summer Camp 

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.

Counselors-in-Training, Summer Camp (must be 14-18 to apply) 

Interested in environmental education, wilderness skills and working with children? Looking to build your resume and broaden your knowledge of the natural word? Join the Audubon Vermont team this summer as a paid Counselor-In-Training (CIT)! CITs work alongside our day camp Instructors — experienced naturalists and educators — to deliver high-quality, hands-on environmental education and activities for campers ages 3-12. The program is structured to give CITs the opportunity to explore their interests in outdoor education and conservation, while also building the skills and experience necessary to launch them towards their next education or career opportunity. We hope our CITs will become the next generation of Audubon camp Instructors, Naturalist Educators, and Conservation Biologists! 

CITs have the option of working with both our Preschool Nature Camp (ages 3-5) and Ecology Day Camp (ages 6-12). We encourage CITs to take the opportunity to teach both age groups to gain an understanding of how developmental stages of youth impact our lesson plans and teaching styles. While we do our best to honor CIT camp choices, there may be times that CITs will work whatever camp best fits our scheduling needs. For more information about both camps, including age groups and themes for each week, visit our website: 

CITs dedicate 4 weeks of their summer working at summer camp from 8am-4pm, with a 30-minute lunch break. This opportunity pays $15/hour.
