We are looking for teenagers (ages 14 to 18) to be Environmental Education Assistants (EEAs) at our Maine Audubon summer programs. As an Environmental Education Assistant, you will have a unique opportunity to develop leadership and skills towards creating a meaningful interaction between children and nature. You will assist in leading activities and games and serve as a role model for all campers.
Maine Audubon summer programs are designed to provide children with a chance to safely explore exciting aspects of the natural world, while practicing ways to conserve and protect those natural communities. To accomplish this, each day is designed around specific questions related to Maine’s ecosystems and local wildlife and habitats. Children will discover the answers to these questions through daily activities, such as songs, nature games, recycled art projects or a low-impact hike or meal, which can lead to changes in how they interact with the natural world.
There are opportunities with both preschool (ages 3-5) and camp (ages 6-11) programs. Camps run from June 19 through August 25 at our Centers in Falmouth and Scarborough Marsh. With either program, we ask for a commitment of at least 1-2 full weeks and attend a training session.
