You will help provide 6th grade students opportunities for hands-on, experiential, learning in an outdoor setting. You will work as part of a team to help students learn about ecology, geology, hydrology, astronomy, navigation, archery and physics, history, and low-ropes initiatives. Interns will guide students in stewardship of themselves, their community, and the environment.
