Mile High Pines Camp

Do you love Jesus? Do you enjoy working with youth? Does the idea of living in Southern CA pique your interest?

Then look no further! Join our Outdoor Education Team!

Set in the San Bernardino Mountains and equidistant from LA, San Diego, and the beach if you’re looking for Christian community and a job that doesn’t feel like a work, we’re the place for you!

As a Naturalist, you will lead 5-8th graders on hikes while instructing hands-on classes in science, wilderness survival, and leadership over the course of 4 days and 3 nights. In addition to leading meals, all-camp games, campfire nights, and challenge course activities you will develop life skills that will prepare you for future careers and stretch you spiritually.

Qualified Naturalists have:

– A personal commitment to Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior, and a desire to work in ministry, dedicated to drawing others to faith in God

– A high school diploma (required)

– A BS/BA/AA or higher in life science, biological science, physical science, parks & recreation, or equivalent combination of education & experience (preferred, not required)

– Previous formal or informal teaching experience, including lesson planning & public speaking

– The physical fitness and mental fortitude to trail walk 1-4 miles/day (low intensity) and work longer camp days

Looking for something more long-term?

Good news! All good things don’t have to come to an end. In fact, we prefer the opposite and invite you to stay on after the Outdoor Edu season is over to have a blast in our Summer of Service as a member of our Adventure Team, Kitchen Squad, or Maintenance Crew!
