Position Overview

We’re seeking dedicated, creative, fun, outdoor enthusiasts with high-energy to become Summit instructors. Summit instructors work with children ages 7 to 18, both onsite and/or through virtual fieldtrip programming. SEEC instructors also facilitate adult groups through teambuilding activities.

The Summit normally offers programming ranging from 1-day experiences up to 3-day/2-night residential stays. For Spring 2021, the SEEC education department will need confident, flexible individuals interested in facilitating environmental education via a wide variety methods and mediums.

The 2020 Season

During the 2020 season, SEEC modified and adapted programming to include 3 weeks of highly modified on-site summer camp, a virtual summer camp for elementary and middle school students and socially distant/masked family day events in August and October. SEEC instructors also participated in Facebook Live presentations ranging from Eastern Box Turtles to night hikes and nature yoga.

All on-site environmental education programming followed strict CDC and NC DHHS Covid-19 guidelines and regulations. Our first consideration is the safety of our park guests and staff. All trainings and programs will continue to follow all CDC and NC DHHS guidelines.
