Outdoor Education Instructors
Located in the heart of the Mohican Valley, Nuhop is one of Ohio's foremost experiential education facilities. The Center borders The Mohican State Forest, which expands the outdoor classroom to include Mohican’s 4,000 acres of coniferous and deciduous forest, with 32 miles of hiking trails, 24 miles of mountain biking, several small streams and waterfalls, and the Clearfork River and Gorge. Nuhop also has a private beach on Pleasant Hill Lake which is great for canoeing and aquatic lessons. The campus is also a 5-minute walk to Mohican State Park Lodge.
The Nuhop Outdoor Education program provides a balance between experiential, outdoor and environmental education philosophies for elementary and middle school students each spring and fall. Outdoor Education Instructors will teach environmental education classes like geology, ecology and forestry, and will facilitate experiential activities including canoeing, compass/orienteering, team building, and high ropes course. Instructors will also have occasional evening activities, overnight responsibilities in cabins, and day-long workshop facilitation with school, college and corporate groups. Positions are available during the spring (March 15th to May 25th) and fall (August 13th to November 30th). If you have experience working with children in a traditional or non-traditional educational setting, an interest and passion for working in the outdoors, and the ability to lead and teach others with professionalism and respect, send your cover letter and resume to Matt Poland or apply online.

Outdoor Education Instructors
Located in Carroll County, on the banks of Leesville Lake, FFA Camp Muskingum has been offering unique outdoor experiences since 1942. The lake, hillside and forests offer prime opportunities for aquatic and nature studies. Your weekends are free to explore the surrounding area, including proximity to Cuyahoga Valley National Park and other great hiking and outdoor exploration activities.
Nature's Classroom is seeking enthusiastic, fun, and talented individuals excited to work with young people in the outdoor education program! Outdoor Education Instructors will be assigned a field group (typically 6th graders) and will lead hands-on, activity-based programming that includes outdoor classes, interpretive nature hikes, living history reenactments based on the Underground Railroad, night hikes, campfires, and large group games. Instructors also eat meals with their group, lead team building and nature center activities, and work with groups on the high ropes course may be required. Positions are available during the spring (late February through the end of May, with a summer camp work option) and during the fall (mid-August to mid-November). Although having nature education teaching experience is a plus, it isn't necessary. As long as you are excited to learn, Nature's Classroom can teach you what you need to know. Individuals from all areas of study are encouraged to apply. If you love kids, want to learn and are excited about being outside, fill out the online application or email the Program Directors for more information.
