Nature Day Camp Counselor

June 2018 - August 2018 Midland, MI
“The entire goal of the Chippewa Nature Center is to help children build meaningful and passionate relationships with the outdoors through hands-on experience and fun education; I could feel that mission ring through the actions of all my co-workers each day. The job was so much fun: from kayaking, to high ropes courses, to overnight campouts and late night games. The staff was unbelievably supportive and it was the best job I have ever had.”
