The Instructors of the day camp are responsible for providing instruction, supervision, and team support during program days. They design lessons and take the lead on activities throughout the day, sometimes managing groups on their own, and sometimes with team members. Everyone mentors each other at Living Earth School, so we are always learning!

We hire folks that are outgoing, fun, positive-minded, responsible, competent, personal growth-oriented, team players, open communicators, and ready to dive into the adventure of camp and make the most of it. Ideally, Instructors come in with experience in wild edible/medicinal plants, naturalist skills such as plant/tree/ bird ID, and crafting skills under their belt, but this is not a requirement.

*If you are offered an interview, we will discuss whether you will be an assistant, co-, or lead-instructor. Salary is adjusted based on experience*

The summer camp season runs June 5th through August 13th, with a week of training and an optional week off mid-season. If you need housing, you are invited to stay at one of our Staff Camp locations. Here there are individual tent spaces, shared outdoor covered kitchen, shower, and toilet amenities as well as the comradery of living beside your coworkers.
