Chincoteague Bay Field Station Chincoteague Bay Field Station is the residential field station of the Marine Science Consortium. We are located near a wealth of ecologically significant and environmentally rich habitats, such as productive saltmarshes, pristine barrier island beaches, peaceful cypress swamps, and sheltering maritime forests. The Chincoteague Bay Field Station provides outstanding multi-disciplinary, educational and research opportunities that celebrate the rich natural, cultural, economic, and technological resources of the mid-Atlantic Coastal region through field-based and hands-on learning, often in affiliation with multiple public and private partners. To accomplish this mission, the Field Station provides a unique set of educational and research experiences; expands research collaborations among member universities, NASA Wallops Flight Facility, US Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, and other public and private partners; and expands and enhance programs for pre-college, university, and adult learners.
Summer Camp CBFS offers a variety of summer camps and courses that give all campers a hands-on, feet-wet experience. Our residential marine science camp is for students age 8-18 to stay for either 3 nights or 5 nights at our on campus dorms. The summer sessions are divided by age with groups consisting of 8-9 year olds, 10-12 year olds, 13-15 year olds or 16-18 year olds. CBFS’s Summer Camps are structured as a “Build Your Own Adventure” where campers will be able to select activities and classes to create their own unique camp experience. Activities include all of our traditional marine science topics as well as arts, sports, and team building. Our campers have a blast exploring Virginia’s Eastern Shore & barrier islands through courses led by Field Station Educators and Counselors. Throughout the week, they will share meals, classes, and evening activities with our staff and fellow campers. It’s a great experience for campers to interact with others who are also interested in marine science and the outdoors.
Weekly camp duties run from Sunday at 1:00 pm to Friday at 5:00 pm with some time-off during the week. Counselors will report directly to the Education Director. Applicants for the Camp Counselor position should read carefully below to decide if this the right job for them.
