Coyote In Training

After completing your week-long leadership training you will become eligible to act as a Coyote in Training (CIT). You get to be a leader at camp while also getting a behind-the-scenes look at how the magic happens.

Junior Coyote

Become an integral part of running Big Bear Village or Camp Artemis. Our JCs come out to camp before the campers get there and get to experience what Big Bear Camp is like with just the staff. During camp you will become a leader and role model to the younger campers, helping to make camp operate smoothly.

Coyote Leader

Our Coyote Leaders are a critically important part of Coyote Outdoor School. Coyote Leaders are High School students who volunteer their time to help teach 5th and 6th grade students at Outdoor School, along with our staff.

Being a Mentor

So, what’s it really like being a mentor? Check out our Leadership Handbook to discover what skills and activities you will be developing. The Handbook explains about the secrets behind our Coyote Mentoring approach. It also details all the awesome perks of taking on a leadership role at Whole Earth Nature School. Maybe someday you will be a Whole Earth Nature School instructor.
