The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced they are recruiting staff for the 2021 Summer Environmental Education Camps season.
Working at a DEC residential summer camp is more than just a summer job. It’s an opportunity for students to gain leadership skills, brush up on natural history, and meet others who share a love for conservation and the outdoors. Staff live in beautiful, rustic camp settings and are provided a salary and room and board for the summer.
DEC is still seeking applicants for a variety of positions including Health Directors, Waterfront Directors, Cooks, Counselors, Lifeguards and EMTs.
DEC continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic to determine the operation of summer camp programs for 2021. All camps would be operated in compliance with CDC/Department of Health guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
