Do you love seeing kids experience wonder and awe in nature? Join our Outdoor Science Team! Do you enjoy working with 5th grade public school students and impacting their lives? Are you interested in teaching and being outdoors? Our relationship based, nature oriented Outdoor Science Program exposes students to the wonder of nature through hands-on science lessons, adventure experiences, and team building. The Naturalist team is a group of Jesus loving outdoor enthusiasts that set aside several months to live in community and join us in our mission.
The Outdoor Science Naturalist assumes responsibility for a trail group of students and teaching science content for 5th grade during scheduled class times, assists in regular program duties, including team-building and adventure activities, and leads extended activities when outdoor science is in session, as well as additional guest group support responsibilities when outdoor science is not in session (additional support duties with facilities, housekeeping, food service, and adventure recreation; duties as assigned by Supervisor). He/she will be responsible to model a genuine lifestyle of Christian discipleship in a manner consistent with Carolina Creek’s mission, vision, and values.
Naturalists live in an intentional, Christ centered community with one another in shared housing. Staff are invited to join a community built on authentic and hospitable relationships.
Naturalists receive excellent training in curriculum development and experiential education. Ongoing support from the administrative team as well as veteran staff members ensure that staff are “poured into” and supported.
