Job Descriptions


Seasonal employment (April - May) and (August - November) working 3 - 7 days a week.

Kimball Camp YMCA is looking for recent graduates to fill our positions (5) as Outdoor Education Instructors. The position is available to all majors, but I believe is ideal for Biology majors, all Education majors, or Fitness and Recreation Programming majors. Outdoor Education Instructors teach multiple classes per day from a selection of Natural Science, Adventure Education, or Living History options that the particular schools choose from. OE Instructors receive training to teach many of the 20 class options from our curriculum. OE Instructors may have to work some nights leading camp recreational activities (no overnights). The Outdoor Education Season runs from April – June and September – November. To “bridge” the two seasons, opportunities are available in leadership positions during our Summer Camp Season (June-August) as Waterfront Director, Day Camp Director, Camp Nurse, and others. Pay range is $200/wk + meals while working. For more information contact the Program Director, at 517-283-2168 or
