why should I teach nature craft at summer camp?

Combine your love of the outdoors with your passion for art as a nature craft instructor at summer camp in Canada. There might not be a better way to get your creativity flowing - you'll connect with nature, develop an incredible eye for detail, and use your imagination to find interesting uses for various objects.

what does a nature craft instructor do at summer camp?

As a nature craft instructor, your job will be split into two main parts - first, finding your materials, and then putting them to use.

You'll explore the camp grounds and the surrounding area, discovering objects that you can turn into artistic masterpieces. You’ll be looking for things such as leaves, sticks, and pebbles around camp, and then working alongside campers to come up with innovative projects to use them in - from leaf collages and stick paintings to sculptures made from pebbles and pine cones.

Will I be trained?

When you arrive at camp, you will spend around a week getting trained in your activity, to make sure you give the best experience to campers, whilst at the same time ensuring their safety. Don’t worry if you don’t have any relevant qualifications, all we’re asking for is that you’re willing to get stuck in!

How many children should I expect to teach?

Campers come down to sessions in divisions (age groups). These can vary in skill level, but usually are made up of 10-30 campers. You’ll then be paired with an individual camper or a group, and don’t worry - you’ll be supported by your fellow specialists and counsellors.

Do I still get days off?

Of course! Everyone needs time to recharge their batteries after an exciting but hectic week at camp, as well as the opportunity to explore the local area and further afield. Most camps will give you a 24 hour block of free time every week, whilst some others provide 2-4 days off in a row every few weeks.
