    Located at Camp Cedar Crest, near the town of Green Valley Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains, ECOS Institute welcomes students, teachers and staff to life at 6,500 feet above sea level. While base camp is close to several towns and to all of the advantages of civilization, you’ll enjoy the thrill of living in a remote, natural area, with fresh air, clean water and the chance to connect with the natural world. End work in the forest at noon on Friday, then surf at the beach or camp in the desert with world-class rock climbing and starry skies.

    Are you looking for life's next adventure? Become a mentor and guide for 5th and 6th grade students from across Southern California as they experience life at science camp. With a focus on whole-child development, ECOS Institute aims to cultivate curiosity, confidence, and connection in every student. Working as part of a team of 30 passionate and professional educators, Instructors facilitate natural science lessons rooted in the key components of student-lead exploration, inquiry, and investigation. Wildlife biology, local geology, and forest ecology are central to the curriculum, and all incoming staff receive thorough training on science instruction of the local ecosystems, childcare and group management. As a cabin leader, you will supervise a team of 10-15 students, guiding them through personal challenges, team-building activities, and a comprehensive camp experience that includes plenty of games, songs, and good 'ol fun! Instructors also serve as the primary supervisors for students in the cabins at night.

    The term of employment is October 25, 2021 through June 3, 2022, with Thanksgiving and winter breaks, as well as many 3-day weekends. Compensation includes $16,520 in program stipends and bonuses, meals and housing (even on weekends and holidays!), WiFi access, professional development subsidies, and sponsored staff outings. If you are ready to join a team of outdoor enthusiasts who are passionate about passing on a love of learning and an appreciation for the outdoors to the next generation, fill out the online application.
