Junior Environmental Educators (JEE)

Summer 2024

Ages 15-17

Times and locations vary depending on camp.

This program requires an application and approval process. Not all applicants may be selected. Applicants must be 15 by the first day of their chosen camp sessions. Application is online on the summer camp page. Registration fee will be paid once applicants have been finalized. 

The SM&NC JEE program is aimed at students ages 15-17 who have an interest in education and the environment.

JEE staff will assist educators in many aspects of the camp program, including preparation, group management, morning welcome/check-in, afternoon pick-up, and activity coordination. JEE staff will receive hands-on training in developing age-appropriate, innovative environmental education curriculum in Connecticut natural history, and in managing a multi-age, co-ed group. Volunteers are required to attend an orientation session for an overview of responsibilities and camp curriculum. JEE participants must be 15 years old by the start of camp, able to commit to a minimum of 5 camp days, and be willing to submit a current medical record for camp files. JEE participants and their parents must sign off on a volunteer code of conduct. There will be a maximum of one JEE volunteer per camp group per week.
