Summer Camp Job Openings

Wild Intelligence is hiring a summer camp director, 4-8 mentors and volunteers for summer camps.  The sessions will be held Summer 2021. The camp location is 20 minutes northwest of Athens at Earthsong, a 100-acre property, on the North Oconee River off Savage Road near the Bear Creek Reservoir. We anticipate a total of 30-40 children ages 4-13. We are outside all day. 

Applicants must be motivated, energetic and creative individuals with a commitment to the outdoors. Experience working with kids is desirable. Applicants from all areas of study and camp experience are welcome to apply. Our biggest requirement is that our staff genuinely enjoy spending time with and teaching kids in an outdoor setting.

Typical activities include forest games, tracking, building natural shelters with branches and leaves, nature art, learning birds and plants, and wading in the river.
