Volunteer in Catalina Island

Camp Emerald Bay is looking for a qualified volunteer to spend a summer on Catalina Island, helping us as we develop an environmental program for the thousands of young adults we host every year. The volunteer's primary responsibility will be to maintain and develop our garden and compost facility, which has 350 square feet of planter beds. Additional work will include teaching an environmentally themed class each week. Other work can be tailored to meet the individual's learning objectives.

Emerald Bay is a camp located on the West End of the island, off the California coast. A far cry from the bustling tourist destination of Avalon, the West End offers camp staff unparalleled opportunities for hiking, trail running, swimming, snorkeling, mountain biking, kayaking, camping, and many more activities. A 'run into town' requires some planning, as the nearest town of Two Harbors is a 30 minute drive down dirt roads, but the island's spectacular beauty and atmosphere more than make up for any lack of modern conveniences.

Please contact Ashley Prososki at ebgreenteam@gmail.com to request an application and to learn more about the position. We are currently looking for volunteers who can stay a month or more between June 1 and August 31, 2012. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, with priority given to early applicants. Acceptance is usually announced two months prior to start date.
