Chewonki Foundation Wiscasset, Maine
Job Type Seasonal / temporary

Chewonki's Outdoor Classroom program is a unique model where educators work with residential school programs leading groups of students on base-camping and saltwater canoe trips and teach outdoor living, team building and ecology through facilitating a variety of lesson topics; natural history, sustainability, organic farming, and canoeing. During these programs educators live with their students and school chaperone in small groups camping at shore-side campsites on Chewonki Neck, sleeping in tents, cooking over open fires, and teaching other hard skills.

Personal growth, appreciation and stewardship for the natural world and building community are the three core values that support Chewonki’s mission. Each Outdoor Classroom experience strives to achieve each of these core values. The majority of programming takes place on Chewonki's 400-acre peninsula, which is surrounded by tidal estuaries. The land is mostly wooded, and also contains fields, two freshwater ponds, a working organic farm, an extensive salt marsh, a hiking trail system and eleven established shore side campsites with tent platforms. In addition to the base camping programs, the OC program also offers wilderness trips and day programs for schools. The Majority of Outdoor Classroom’s school partners participate in our programming in the Spring and Fall seasons.
