Expedition Trip Leader

  • by

Website Lake Champlain Maritime Museum

Lake Champlain Maritime Museum is in search of qualified on-water trip leaders for their summer teen expedition programs.

The summer is broken into three separate expeditions. The first called Champlain Discovery is a five-week program where teens ages 13-16 build 17’ sea kayaks and embark on a two-week expedition on Lake Champlain in the kayaks they built. The boatbuilding portion of Champlain Discovery is a day program that runs five days a week followed by the expedition. Trip leaders are responsible for student management during the building portion and will work with experienced boatbuilders. Not all participants of the boat building program choose to attend the expedition. Followed by Champlain Discovery are two one-week long expeditions. Expedition Champlain is a one-week rowing expedition and Sail Champlain is a one-week sailing expedition. Training in the rowing boats will be provided prior to embarking on the rowing expedition. Trip leaders for the sailing expedition will be selected based on sailing experience. Check out the Museum’s website for more information about the teen expeditions:

The expedition season runs from mid-June through mid-August. Pay will be determined based on experience. For expedition days, the pay will range from $130-$160 per day and during preparation and clean up, trip leaders will be paid hourly between $16 and $18.

To apply, please submit a resume, cover letter, and three references to Rebecca Burns, expeditionary program manager at Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until all positions have been filled.
