Residential Outdoor Science Instructor (ROSI)

This is a seasonal position with multiple facets (or multiple roles and responsibilities). During the fall and spring seasons, instructors deliver residential, 1-5 day Outdoor Science educational programs primarily serving fifth and sixth grades from regional elementary schools. All of our lessons are hands-on science and collaborative problem solving based with a focus on critical thinking, science, and environmental stewardship. Instructors are responsible for leading and educating a group of 12–15 students throughout the week, including facilitating large group activities, leading meals and night programs.

During the summer season, Sierra Nevada Journeys delivers both traditional summer camp programs and tailored programs for special needs and leadership development groups. Sierra Nevada Journeys' traditional, week-long summer camp programs are designed with an educational and experiential focus for our resident campers. Instructors supervise the campers overnight, as well as facilitate activities such as archery, swimming, kayaking, campfires, and skits. For leadership development groups, instructors will use Sierra Nevada Journeys' challenge course to facilitate leadership experiences and develop collaborative problem solving skills. Instructors also assist our special needs organizations by adapting traditional camp activities to provide an enriching experience for their campers. Many of our community partners also bring participants to campus on the weekends in the fall and spring and instructors work with them to meet their program goals.

Instructors will be directly responsible for ensuring that attending schools’ and campers’ educational outcomes are met. Instructors are supervised by the Program Coordinators. Join a staff that is committed to constantly improving our outstanding outdoor education programs!
