About the Camp
Prescott Pines is owned by the Southwest Church Connection, an association of Baptist churches throughout Arizona, but we do not limit our impact to the association.

Prescott Pines strives to be personal with our guests and partner organizations, progressive in programming and facilities, and memorable in all things.

Outdoor Education Instructor
Prescott Pines Camp is looking for talented instructors for our Outdoor Education Program. The ODE program is geared toward 5th and 6th grade Public, Private and Christian school students who come for 2 to 3 day overnight camps in the fall and spring. These camps are intended to be an additional educational experience in the school year and an opportunity for personal challenge and growth for the students. The classes we teach are both indoors and outdoors and use very interactive and hands-on activities.
As an instructor, you would be asked to teach several classes per week. Training will take place in the last two weeks of August. The season starts in the beginning of September and goes to the middle of December. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone with a background or a future in education or who just loves to teach. Training and lesson plans will be provided, including teacher training if you do not have a lot of experience. All you need to bring is your people skills, a love of learning and a fun-loving energetic attitude.
This work does qualify for some teaching and outdoor internships and we are willing to work with you to fulfill your education goals.
This job works well with other part-time jobs because the work schedule is consistent throughout the season.
There are a number of ways you can be a part of our work here:
- Become a Summer Staffer: Are you in college and looking for something to do this summer? Spend it with us!
- Form a team: Ask your church about putting together a team of people who can come accomplish a project. Like a missions trip, but without airfare.
- Join S.O.W.E.R.S.: We owe a lot to the S.O.W.E.R.S. If you have an RV and want to travel while helping out organizations like ours, check them out!
