EMPOWER YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE OUTDOORS

In a rapidly changing and unpredictable future, resilience, strength and health will be crucial for tackling life’s challenges. Outdoor education enhances classroom curriculum by allowing students to apply those principles in new environments.

As a Camps Outdoor Educator, you will encourage, excite and lead students in a site you’ll know like the back of your hand.

 

And the best news? You don't need a background as an Outdoor Educator to make a difference to students at our Camps.

 

Our Learning and Development team take your professional development pathway in hand and design your initial entry, and then you take your career trajectory and work with us on your next steps.
