As a member of the Clearpool Campus Staff Team, in Kent, New York - this residential internship option will offer an exciting opportunity to participate in a growing integrated nature based day school setting that brings together farm animals, gardening, environmental science and education for 32 students who go to school there. Our Clearpool campus maintains a small farm animal area, an organic garden and is located within 300 acres of pristine woodlands, parts of which are designated as a New York State model forest. Interns will support certified teachers, therapists and outdoor education staff in environmental, horticultural and animal care activities for children with psycho social disabilities. Nature based learning is a form of experiential, interdisciplinary education that connects people to the environment, their community, and the role of all living beings in our lives. Experiential learning within nature creates the opportunity for children to self reflect through the interaction and relationship with people, animals and the environment.
This new internship option offers an integration of farm animal care, participation in gardening and also being immersed in an innovative outdoor education environment as part of a day school. It is idea for an enthusiastic generalist who believes that all contact with nature can be beneficial.
