Under the supervision of the full-time Director and Associate Director, our Naturalist Instructors are responsible for your student(s) during the majority of their stay. We carefully select Naturalists who have the following qualifications:
- Bachelors degree (usually in Biology or Elementary Education)
- Excellent references
- Experience working with children
- Fingerprint clearance
- First Aid/CPR certification
Along with the leadership of our Naturalists, students are supervised by teachers and parent chaperones from their schools, with a required ratio of 1 chaperone to 10 students, and with gender proportionate supervision. Parent chaperones help us provided a well-supervised program during all classes, activities, meals, and cabin times.
