Gulf Coast Academy, a Florida public charter middle school, leads small groups of students out into the community for field experiences during every regular school day throughout the entire school year.

These trips relate to the core curriculum being taught and encourage physical education, team building, cooperation, artistic endeavors, and character education.

This is an intense, demanding job that requires physical and physiological stamina, outstanding organization, technological savvy, extreme initiative, and a nice-sized helping of common sense.

Many of the activities have a science focus and are integrated with the core classes (language arts, science, mathematics, technology, and social studies). Therefore we desire applicants that have education beyond high school.

Flexibility, a good sense of humor, a passion for learning, and a willingness to work long, hard hours are essential. Summer camp counselor experience is a plus!  We will provide the training necessary for you to obtain certifications in First Aid, CPR, Lifeguarding,  & Florida Safe Boating as well as making the arrangements and pay for you to obtain a school bus operator CDL-Class B license. Must be 21 years of age or older to earn CDL.
