Adventure Camp Instructor Guide – Moose Hill

Location: Sharon, MA
Sanctuary: Moose Hill

Spend your summer exploring beautiful sites throughout Massachusetts and beyond as you lead small groups of campers on day trips with Moose Hill Camp as your home base! You and your partner will develop and lead active lessons that teach campers ages 11 - 14 to appreciate nature and one another. Each one-week session has a different theme—aquatic life, conservation, watersheds, geology, and more.  Hiking and natural history are a part of most sessions and some sessions include overnights and canoeing. Training includes nature study as well as teaching techniques.
