Outdoor Education Field Instructors

Seasonal positions are available during late February-May and Mid August-November.

Seasonal contract pay starts at a minimum of $500/Week with the following benefits: On-site housing, food when working with clients, and access to our facilities, including laundry, internet, the Mohican state park trails, two lakes, two rock walls, and two high ropes courses. Part-time instructor pay starts at $12/hour and increases with experience and qualifications.


Salaries increase with additional qualifications, including WFA/WFR, ACCT Level 1 or 2, teaching license, master's degree, or ACA canoe instructor certification.


Instructors will teach and lead outdoor education sessions through:

  • Approaching learning and engagement through a multidisciplinary teaching approach
  • Guiding hikes in the state forest
  • Engaging students in environmental and STEAM-centered curriculum 
  • Facilitating challenge courses, canoeing, rock climbing, and other adventure programming
  • Promoting social and emotional learning with our team-building initiatives
  • Making the program accessible for all students, regardless of ability level and background


Candidates will be:

  • Driven and motivated to serve
  • Flexible and able to thrive in a team setting
  • Kind, honest, and positive role models for the students and districts Nuhop serves
  • Equipped to instruct with compassion 
  • Ready to challenge themselves to learn and grow
  • Inspired by Nuhop’s mission and focus, leading to professional outcomes
  • Comfortable working outdoors in all types of weather
  • Willing to take the initiative to assist with cleaning and other duties


The position will require evening duties throughout the season and occasional weekend responsibilities.  You should expect to help the students settle in at night 2-3 times per week, but you will not be asked to stay the night in the cabins as a part of this position. 

Candidates need to be comfortable working outdoors, excited about teaching, and able to pass a background check. This is the perfect job for recent college graduates, prospective teachers, students invested in a gap year process, professionals in environmental studies, and retired educators.

The initial training will last two weeks, and continued training will be offered as the season progresses.
