The Junior Instructor Program began in the summer of 2021 as a way to engage early career naturalists, bird guides, and environmental educators with our work at Hog Island Audubon Camp. Now this fully-fledged program has expanded to most camp sessions over the season and allows people to gain work experience, network with our world-renowned instructor teams, and possibly find new mentors to continue their career journeys. Early career for us means within 10 years of your post-graduation date from college/tech school/etc. or a new career choice. Some preference is given to past Hog Island camp alumni but it is not a requirement. Junior Instructors are given financial compensation for their time and all room/board is provided during their camp week.
Applications open each year in late fall and the deadline to apply is February 1st.
