Nature Camp Leader - August Only - Moose Hill

Location: Sharon, MA
Sanctuary: Moose Hill

Moose Hill Camp is looking for enthusiastic people who have the desire to actively enrich the lives of children through hands-on nature activities, games and crafts. Have fun exploring our extensive trail system and the diversity of life found in our upland forest, meadows, red maple swamp and vernal pools with small groups of campers. 

Join our team of staff who enjoy learning and working together. Your role is two-fold—first as a counselor who supervises the campers’ health and safety, promotes positive youth development, and plays games and second as an instructor who connects children to nature through hand-on learning activities.  The camp provides you with goals and some activities for each weekly session. You will work with other staff to create additional age-appropriate lessons, games and crafts.
