WANT TO JOIN THE BARRIER ISLAND TEAM?
Want to teach at the beach? St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center is seeking passionate, Christian teachers for our Barrier Island Environmental Education Program! Barier Island is in partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina and is located on Seabrook Island, about 25 miles from Charleston.
The BI program is in an area that lends itself to show the diversity of ecosystems in the Lowcountry. These areas include nearly a mile of beach, acres of salt marsh and undisturbed maritime forest, including ponds and freshwater swamp.
Educate students in grades K-12 in environmental-based classes on beach, salt marsh, and maritime forest ecosystems. Other topics include Herpetology, Ornithology, Orienteering, and various team-building activities. There are also opportunities to assist with animal care, maintenance of trail systems, and aid in curriculum development, and other camp responsibilities. Because St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center is a thriving Christian community, Barrier Island staff have the opportunity to participate in Bible studies and weekly chapel.
A bachelor’s degree is required. A focus on education, biology, or environmental science is preferred but not necessary. An interest in teaching, communicating, and displaying God’s love with grade-school students is essential.
Bi-weekly stipend, beachside lodging, free laundry, meals and Wi-Fi access
