Do you love the coast? Do you want to share that love with 4th-12th grade students through trips to the tide pools, nature hikes, kayaking, and more? Come teach hands-on science on the beautiful central California coast at The Coastal Institute at Camp Ocean Pines! Located in a pine-oak forest with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, our residential outdoor education program is centered on inspiring students to be curious, ask questions, and explore the world around them to find answers. Coastal Institute Naturalists teach groups of 10-15 students about the ocean, the forest and everything in between, and lead off-site adventures that include tide pooling, hikes, kayaking and beach walks. Responsibilities also include supervising mealtimes, leading camp activities, such as singing songs, performing skits, facilitating low ropes activities and target sports (archery and tomahawk throwing), and learning how to handle live raptors housed onsite.
Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree in science, experiential education or related field and be willing to obtain CPR/first aid and CA Food Handlers certifications prior to start date. WFA/WFR, Lifeguard certification, Spanish language skills, raptor handling, kayaking experience, and at least one season of experience at a related program are preferred. Our spring 2018 season will run from January 22nd through June 8th. Our full spring team will consist of six naturalists, one program coordinator, and the program director. At the time of this posting, we have 3 available Naturalist positions. To apply, visit and follow the instructions at the bottom of the page.
