Summer Position

Heather Campbell Chaney Environmental Fellowship

The HCCF is granted  in memory of Heather Campbell Chaney, a teacher and naturalist who passed away in 2001 while working with Catamount Institute and Palmer Land Trust. For each summer since her death, Heather’s family has awarded this fellowship to a summer staff member at Catamount Institute in memory of Heather as a way of letting her passion live on, for bringing a strong environmental ethic to our region’s youth.  

The Heather Campbell Chaney Environmental Fellow works with Catamount Institute’s year-round Education Department staff to form the core teaching, leadership, and safety supervision team for all of our camps. This position demands a high level of experience as Fellows teach from existing lesson plans, write some lesson plans of their own, and are at times the lead educator in charge of camp planning, programming, or campers.
