Outdoor Environmental Educator

YMCA Camp Colman

Longbranch , Washington

YMCA Camp Colman is hiring Program Instructors for the Fall 2018 season. Located on over 100 acres in the beautiful coastal forest along Case Inlet of the South Puget Sound, Camp Colman is seeking individuals who are excited about working outdoors with people from all backgrounds, especially youth.  We do this through inviting exploration, encouraging curiosity, guiding critical thinking, and supporting effort in the Environmental Sciences, Outdoor Skills and Challenge Education.

Responsibilities include teaching classes in marine science, forest ecology, and outdoor skills, plus facilitating group development and challenge course activities. Camp staff also occasionally assist with many other camp operations, including program area preparation, kitchen assistance, and maintenance projects.

Staff enjoy many benefits during the season. Staff are provided with shared housing including a kitchen, plus meals in the camp lodge and basic food for staff houses. Additionally staff are provided with onsite laundry machines and use of camp facilities and equipment when they are not in use for programs.
