Job Description:

Camp Pemigewassett (“Pemi”) (www.camppemi.com) , a residential camp for boys, age 8-15, in Wentworth, NH, seeks an experienced teacher/naturalist for a full-time SEASONAL position, June 10- August 12, 2018 (a later starting date may be possible). Pemi has a 93 year tradition of excellence in science-based, outdoor nature education and the person taking this position will not only teach in the program but also assist in its operation. We have 170 campers. About 85 come for our full 7 week season and we have two cohorts of about 85 who come for a 3.5 week half season. 

Candidates should have at least 3 years experience in outdoor/environmental education or science teaching, and a degree in one of the field-based sciences. Additional experience might substitute for the degree. We are specifically looking for someone with a passion for insects and related organisms. In addition strength in at least one of the following would be a plus: fresh-water ecology, forest ecology, birds, astronomy, wilderness skills. While familiarity with our northern New England habitats would be helpful, it is not necessary as we can provide training.

Pemi is located on the edge of the White Mountains and the New Hampshire Lakes Region. We own all the property surrounding a small lake and the habitats on our property include lake, bog, swamp, mixed conifer forest, small streams, and riparian. Other habitats are a short trip away. We have a large, fully equipped nature center that includes reference collections of insects, rocks and minerals, and mushrooms, along with a 1000 volume library of field guides and other nature-related books. More information about the program and our facilities can be found on our web site (http://www.camppemi.com). For more information, contact R. Laurence Davis, PhD, Director of Nature Programs and Teaching at rldavis@newhaven.edu.

How to Apply:

Those who wish to apply should send, electronically to this email address, a cover letter that describes your interests and experience, a current CV, and a list of 3 references with contact information. The salary is negotiable and based on experience and education. It includes housing, meals, and laundry. Housing for family members may be negotiated.

Applications are accepted until the position is filled.
