Job op- Camp Bayou

Things are looking up at Camp Bayou this year. Thanks to some prep work by one of our volunteers, we were able to make a productive presentation to nearly all the science teachers from Hillsborough County public schools. Since then we have doubled our normal requests for field trips which is wonderful but presents a new dilemma. In the past, volunteer availability has been all we needed to keep up but times are changing... and its a good thing.
Camp Bayou is currently looking for folks to work on a per diem basis as needed, to lead programs for school chldren at Camp Bayou. The pay will be $30 for the 3 hour program. Program topics are varied so it will be helpful to learn several components before you lead a group. Initially, we are in need of facilitators to help with our Rotation Station program which allows up to 120 kids, divided into 6 groups of 20 or less, to rotate every 30 minutes through 5 learning stations plus lunch. Attached is a detailed example of the program, but be aware that individual components may vary. We schedule programs on Thursdays or Fridays (and on rare occasions on Saturdays) from 10am-1pm. All facilitators must agree to a background check.
If you are interested in being a very part time facilitator, at least for the time being, I will be setting up a training date in early Dec, perhaps Friday the 11th. Other trainings, as well as free Red Cross CPR/First Aid certification, will be offered but not mandatory. If you are interested, please contact me at or call 813-363-5438.
In the meantime, I have an urgent need for at least 2 facilitators on Friday, Nov 20. If you are game for a brief training in our Native Peoples' topics within the next 2 weeks, please contact me as soon as possible.
Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon!
