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 Summer Camp Counselor will share responsibilities in delivering our nature-themed summer camps. The Seward Audubon Center summer camps have a great reputation and have been very popular. As a result, many campers are either returning campers or are siblings of previous campers. Two counselors will administer the day-to-day camp operations for a group of 16 children. The Center is offering seven weeks of camps for children ages 6-9. Nature education is the overall theme for our camps. The camp curriculum and activities have been developed specifically for our camp, so the co-leads are not required to develop new material. Our camp programs are completely outdoors, and our location provides many opportunities for hikes and swimming.
Summer Nature Day Camp begins on June 27 and ends on August 26. There will be no summer camp for the work week beginning July 25. The daily work hours are 8:00 AM through 4:00 PM, Monday to Friday. There will be training period before camp begins. The training dates will be scheduled to accommodate new hires and trainers.
