Work and Play in the beautiful San Bernardino Mountains! Be a mentor and guide for 5th and 6th grade students from across Southern California as they experience life at "science camp".
As part of a team of 30 passionate and professional educators, you will have the opportunity to 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 as they learn the unique qualities of our local ecosystems.
In addition to science education, ECOS Instructors help young students to navigate other aspects of overnight field trips. As a cabin leader, you will supervise a team of 12-13 students, guiding them through personal challenges and team-building activities, as part of a comprehensive "camp" experience that includes plenty of games, songs, and good 'ol fun. ECOS Instructors are primary supervisors for students in the cabins at night.
With a focus on whole-child development, ECOS Institute aims to cultivate in every child Curiosity, Confidence, and Connections. As an ECOS Instructor, you will have the opportunity to help students discover the beauty of the natural world, and the best qualities of their own character.
