Looking for a fun way to earn your student service learning hours? Apply for the Summer Leadership Program for teens to earn your hours while teaching campers about the wonders of the Chesapeake Bay! Teens assist with day to day camp tasks as well as work with campers to catch fish, kayak, make crafts and explore the Back Creek Nature Park.
The Summer Leadership Program runs from July 8th to August 23rd and is broken into two 3-4 week sessions. We will kick things off with a required training on June 27th from 10AM-2PM, and each session will include additional trainings on working outside, group management, and communication skills. But it won’t be all work; the program will also involve fun, social events! Our full day sessions run from 8:45 AM – 3:15 PM each day. Can’t commit to the full day? Join our aftercare team for our half day sessions which run from 2:30-5:30 PM each day.
The Education Center is seeking 3-5 enthusiastic teens to assist with each session. Acceptance into program pending interview with education center staff. Priority will be given to applicants who can commit to the full three or four week session. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
