We Value Racial Equity...

At Camp ELSO  we are committed to diversity. We strongly encourage applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds for all of our staff positions.

By supporting our campers interests in exploring science careers, and increasing the visibility of people of color as Camp Guides and Educators, we hope to not only debunk stereotypes of traditional STEM learners  but positively affirm the self-identity of Black and Brown children.

Paid Training and a Competitive Wage

All of our Camp Guides and seasonal staff participate in virtual classroom, outdoor adventure, and an overnight training retreat. During trainings we develop leadership skills, write and review lesson plans, practice group management, engage in cultural and historical learning and go on our own outdoor experiences. We also spend time supporting our young leaders on their journey of understanding current and historical trauma, and engaging in learning and conversation about implicit bias and institutional racism. One of our most important pieces of training and leadership development is around decolonizing our understanding of science.

Safety and Security is Our First Priority

We work hard to create a safe space for campers to be free to Experience Life Science Outdoors! To become a Camp ELSO year round or seasonal staff member or volunteer, you must undergo a background check, verification of references, and mandatory training.

We Seek Out Strategic Partnerships

We are always seeking to form dynamic partnerships that will benefit our community and the youth we serve. Camp ELSO seeks to build a mutually beneficial network of like-minded community partners who also work with underserved communities. If you are a community based organization that works with youth contact us to discuss employment partnerships.
