Cabin Leaders


Since 1995 young adults have lead 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade students and their teachers in standards-based hands-on learning experiences in a residential camp setting as "Cabin Leaders." This is a volunteer position that involves providing a fun, safe, and inclusive environment while supervising a group of younger students at night and various times of the day during a session of outdoor school.
