At ECOS Institute you will guide students through science education and camp fun in the mountains of Southern California! With a focus on whole-child development, ECOS Institute aims to cultivate curiosity, confidence, and connection in every student. Working as part of a team of 30 passionate and professional educators, ECOS Instructors facilitate natural science lessons rooted in the key components of student-led exploration, inquiry, and investigation. Wildlife biology, local geology, and forest ecology are central to the curriculum, and all incoming staff receives thorough training on science instruction of the local ecosystems, childcare, and group management. As a cabin leader, you will supervise a team of 12-18 students, guiding them through personal challenges, team-building activities, and a comprehensive camp experience that includes plenty of games, songs, and good 'ol fun! Instructors also serve as the primary supervisor for students in the cabins at night.

Located at Camp Cedar Crest, near the town of Green Valley Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains, ECOS Institute welcomes students, teachers, and staff to life at 6,500 feet above sea level. We're close to several mountain towns and all of the advantages of civilization. At the same time you’ll enjoy living in a beautiful, natural area, with fresh air, clean water and the chance to connect with the natural world. When the work week ends at noon on Friday, you're only 2 hours from Los Angelos, San Diego, and Joshua Tree! Take time to rest, rock climb, surf, backpack, ski and snowboard and we'll see you on Monday!
