Norman Bird Sanctuary is seeking Teacher/Naturalists for the 60th anniversary of their summer camp.

Continuing decades of tradition, Teacher/Naturalists will spend their summer exploring Norman Bird Sanctuary’s seven miles of hiking trails while helping the next generation learn to love nature and the environment.

Teacher/Naturalists lead groups of 12-16 campers in Pre-K through Grade 8; plan and teach a variety of hands-on, nature-based camp activities; oversee camper health and safety; communicate with staff and parents; and supervise high school Assistant Naturalists in Training.

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and have graduated high school. Ideal candidates would have a passion for the environment and a background in education, child care, or environmental sciences. All applicants must be able to pass a state and federal back ground check to be considered for a position.

The staff application is available online, and more information can be found at normanbirdsanctuary.org/employment.

Questions can be directed to Matt Schenck, Camp Director, at 401-846-2577 ext. 15 or mschenck@normanbirdsanctuary.org
