Through our one-of-a-kind ten-year commitment, Fiver provides experiences that challenge and build relationships that nurture so that youth from systemically under-resourced communities in New York can create their own positive futures. The Wilderness Education Internship is designed for early career educators seeking to explore justice and inclusion in the outdoors. Through a three-stage process, interns gradually assume responsibility for wilderness education at camp.
