Do you enjoy the outdoors and need a summer job? The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) may have a job for you.

The FWC is looking for summer camp counselors for its Ocala Outdoor Adventure Camp located in Marion County. Applicants must be a minimum of 18 years of age and pass a mandatory background check as well as have a desire to mentor boys and girls, ages 9-15, in conservation-minded programs. The camp’s fun and educational, hands-on programs, such as fishing, canoeing, swimming and hiking, motivate campers in becoming good stewards of fish and wildlife resources.

The camp offers six one-week sessions beginning June 16. Employees must be available for all sessions. The 57-acre facility is on beautiful Lake Eaton in the Ocala National Forest.

For more information about these summer camp job opportunities on Ocala, please contact the camp at 352-625-2804.

Seagrasses occupy only 0.1 percent of the sea floor, yet are responsible for 12 percent of the organic carbon buried in the ocean, which helps reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide.
