~ Don Lee Summer Camps offer a nationally recognized program of excellence in sailing and coastal adventures centered around small group Christian living. ~

The primary goal of the many summer programs offered is to teach campers what it means to work as a team and help them develop their faith all while having fun participating in amazing activities.

Don Lee Center offers ideal programs for children and youth through the Common Ground school program looking for cooperation and team building skills. Coastal Communities, a school program that takes a closer look at the coastal and river ecosystems, helps nurture over 6000 students each year.

Don Lee Center also serves as a Retreat Center offering a place for groups of all sizes and backgrounds to come together and bond through fellowship during meals and activities.  We have hosted various groups ranging from families to church groups to college organizations.

Position Overview

Environmental Education Instructors at Don Lee Camp & Retreat Center teach students through a residential outdoor environmental education program known as Coastal Communities.

Instructors of the Coastal Communities program facilitate students in grades 3 - 8, and occasionally students as young as kindergarten and high school age. In this program, students come with their class for a one-day, two-day, three-day, or even five-day nature experience.

  • Instructors teach a variety of different explorations, depending on which programs teachers select.
  • Experiential education at Don Lee also incorporates our low element challenge course through both the Common Ground program and the Coastal Communities program.
  • Groups may participate in the challenge course experience for a small portion of their extended visit, or for an entire day! This experience is designed to raise the awareness of students as being part of a group, help them to better learn to cooperate, communicate, and work more effectively as a team. Together, the experiences of these two programs can be a very effective tool to help reinforce lessons of teachers working in a classroom setting.


  • Don Lee Camp & Retreat Center's Environmental and Outdoor Educators are required to have a bachelor's degree in a science or education related field or in outdoor recreation and experiential education.
  • They should possess experience or strong interest in teaching children in an outdoor setting.
  • Enthusiasm, flexibility, and effective communication skills are a must.

Note: Those persons seeking internships must currently be obtaining a college degree in a related field and possess a strong desire to teach children in an outdoor setting.
