Summer Camp Instructor


Living Earth School offers award winning co-ed day camp and overnight camps for ages 5-18 years old. We are looking for Interns, Instructors, an Assistant Cook and Camp Nurse. We aim to teach a holistic balance of skills to help the students understand their place in the natural world, their role in the community, and finally a better awareness of their passions and vision for life. We use coyote mentoring in our nature-based approach to help people connect with their place and to deepen their relationships. Our curriculum is nature based, developing naturalist skills, survival skills, animal tracking, edible/medicinal plants, and understanding the language of birds. We ask lots of questions because it nurtures self-sufficiency and curiosity.  We utilize core routines that help students more fully immerse in nature, with all their senses.  The benefits to the student are the excitement of discovery, a real connection with animals and plants, and a sense of belonging.
