The Field Teacher position at Bryant Pond 4-H Center’s Lakeside Classroom is roughly based on a five-day work week starting Monday morning and ending before 6:00 pm on Friday. Field Teachers may be asked to work occasional weekends on a rotating basis for specialty programs and will be compensated for extra days. Most weeks will consist of two or three overnight or day programs. The Director on Duty and Medic are on-call after evening meds each night. This job demands a great deal of energy, flexibility, and commitment; field teachers often plan and prepare lessons outside of the regular workday.
Program staff at Bryant Pond 4-H Center work and live in a very close community and are expected to contribute to the community through sharing in chores and maintaining a commitment to a positive and collegial work environment. Those living on campus are expected to keep up with the chores associated with shared living spaces including the bathrooms and kitchen. While programs are in session, all food will be prepared and provided by our kitchen staff (please inquire about food needs). While off duty, staff members are welcome to use the kitchen facilities to prepare personal food or eat leftovers out of the staff refrigerator.
Although the main responsibility of a Field Teacher is to work directly with participants teaching lessons, work in other areas may be required. Staff may be asked to help with facility upkeep and maintenance, office work, building projects, gardening, outreach, and lesson planning. Bryant Pond 4-H Camp and Learning Center is dedicated to providing support and high-quality training to its Field Teachers. Staff training happens three times within a seven-month season. Training consists of in-depth teambuilding, low/high challenge course, and climbing wall facilitation skills, concepts of ecology, engineering lessons, outdoor skills such as canoeing, hiking, shooting sports, and survival. We also cover Bryant Pond’s policies, procedures, mission, and vision. Lifeguard, Maine State Trip Leader, 4-H Shooting Sports, and Wilderness First Aid Training are available for staff in some seasons at free or discounted rates.
Bryant Pond 4-H Camp and Learning Center is located in Bryant Pond, Maine, and is a short drive to the beautiful White Mountain National Forest and the Rangeley Lakes area. The local area provides many opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts including rock climbing, backpacking, hunting and fishing, canoeing, and a large winter ski and sport industry. Portland, Maine’s largest city is only an hour’s drive with live music, great food, and shopping.
Preferred qualifications include:
Skills, Fishing, Hiking, Canoeing, Hunting, Backpack/Canoe Expeditions, Indoor Rock Climbing, Forest Ecology, Geology, Gardening and Farm Animals, Engineering, and Science in general.
