Summer Daycamp Assistants and Outdoor Leaders

Every summer, Nearby Nature runs a series of week-long outdoor daycamps in local parks. At each camp, an adult volunteer or an intern and a youth Outdoor Leader (13-18 years old) help our staff with games, outdoor science, crafts, music, and more.

Volunteers commit to assisting with at least one week-long camp per summer, for three-four hours per day. Interns and Outdoor Leaders commit to four or more weeks. Training is provided for all daycamp assistants, Outdoor Leaders, and interns in 2019 on June 8 and 9. See our Calendar for training details. Teen volunteers should read our Outdoor Leader Job Description and fill out an Outdoor Leader application (Microsoft Word Fill-In Form or Printable PDF Form). Adult volunteers should fill out a Volunteer Questionnaire and potential interns will find application materials here.
