Outdoor Education Instructor

Sunset Bay Wharf
Edmonds, WA
$3,500 - $4,500 USD monthly
Sunset Bay Wharf is home to a variety of outdoor education, marine science, and legal education and research programs geared toward young people. Located over the water along a beautiful stretch of sandy beach in the Seattle suburb of Edmonds, the Sunset Bay Wharf is a one of a kind venue dedicated to K-12 experiential education and outreach. 

The Sunset Bay Wharf Beach Camp program is an ocean sports and marine science youth summer camp held at the Sunset Bay Wharf in the Seattle suburb of Edmonds. The program combines mission based marine science education with traditional ocean beach activities such as sea kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, beach biking, skim boarding, and snorkeling. The program also includes a fleet of outboard powered Zodiacs for fun and exploring our marine habitats. 
The Beach Camp program consists of two staff training weeks and 8 one week long student sessions with pairs of Sunset Bay teaching assistants leading an age specific student group for the week. Like any manager within an organization, our educators instruct, lead, and motivate their group to accomplish a wide variety of missions each week. And like any modern organization manager, leadership is accomplished through fun and encouragement.  Summer staff receive round trip air fare within the US, food and lodging, and $3,500 stipend for the 10 week summer session. Summer staff in good standing are eligible for year around career employment with favorable odds.

Sunset Bay Wharf resembles a mini city over the water with summer interns able to pursue interests in a range of operational and teaching areas, from marine science to water sports, photo-video, power boats, biking and sandcastle art. 

The Beach Camp program's mission is two-fold. To educate and challenge our K-8 summer students, and to empower our Environmental Outdoor Education summer staff with real life leadership skills, resume building marine science research, and lifelong friendships with other undergrads from around the country and the world.
