The National Audubon Society is a nonprofit conservation organization that protects birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow. We work throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education, and on-the-ground conservation. Audubon’s state, regional, national, and international programs, nature centers, and chapters have an unparalleled wingspan that reaches millions of people each year to inform, inspire, and unite diverse communities in conservation action. As a sentinel species, we recognize that the fate of birds is inextricably tied to the fate of us all.
The Greenwich Audubon Center opened in 1943 as the National Audubon Society’s first environmental education center in the United States. The 285-acre sanctuary has approximately seven miles of trails that lead to a hardwood forest, old fields, a lake, streams and vernal ponds. Each year, over tens of thousands of adults and children visit Audubon to hike and participate in school, family and adult programs, including citizen science surveys and counts, land stewardship projects, summer camps, lectures and presentations, and natural history and ecology education programs. Ultimately, our programs give people the information they need to make informed decisions about how they interact with nature. Through education, public policy, and science, we hope to build a culture of conservation and environmental stewards for now and in the future.
The Seasonal First Aid and Camp Coordinator will be responsible for responding to all first aid/CPR incidences and emergencies that take place during the Audubon Greenwich Summer Camp hours (9:30 AM - 3:30 PM – June 20 – August 19).
Summer camp staff will work as needed based on any restrictions required because of COVID-19 requirements. Summer programming will primarily be 100% outdoors, with the exception of thunderstorms or other potentially dangerous hazards. All camp staff will be required to complete and pass a Covid-19 health questionnaire each day before the start of camp. At the discretion of the Center Director, summer staff will be required to receive a Covid-19 test multiple times throughout the summer. Staff showing/feeling any signs of Covid-19, will be asked to be tested for COVID-19 and remain home until results are received. If the counselor tests positive, they will be required to not return to camp until they have complied with current State guidelines for quarantine. If there are any campers and/or counselors who become ill with Covid symptoms during camp, they will be required to be tested and their small group cohort will need to quarantine for the recommended amount of time.
