We’re currently hiring several Outdoor Educator roles with varying lengths of contract dates of either May 31st – August 6th or May 31st – November.

Sierra Nevada Journeys provides competitive pay, housing and meals while working at camp, along with a very diverse and inclusive work community.
During the Spring and Fall Outdoor Program Instructors lead residential, three- to five- day outdoor science educational programs primarily serving fifth and sixth grades from regional elementary and middle schools, with a goal to provide culturally relevant and impactful learning opportunities for youth. All our lessons are hands-on science and collaborative problem solving-based with a focus on critical thinking, exploration, and environmental stewardship. Instructors lead a group of 12–15 students throughout their program, including facilitating large group activities, leading meals, and working evening programs.
