The West Virginia University Extension Service is already looking ahead to this summer's camping season.

The Extension is looking for Extension Camp Instructors for the state's largest youth development organization: 4-H.

4-H camping is a time-honored tradition in West Virginia, which was home to the nation's first State 4-H Camp at WVU Jackson's Mill near Weston.

ECIs work across the state with residential and day camps throughout the summer and assist in other activities as well.

Typical ECI duties include working with volunteers, parents and 4-H'ers to lead classes, singing, programs and activities at camps.

The salary is $425 per weeklong assignment, with room and board provided during the assignment.

Applications are available at www.4-hyd.ext.wvu.edu/camping/campinstructor, or by contacting your local office of the WVU Extension Service. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, Jan. 17 to receive priority review; however, applications will be accepted until all positions are filled.

ECIs must be at least 18 years old; have a high school diploma or GED; have at least one year of college, trade school or military service. Experience working with youths in either a volunteer or paid position is required. The employees must have transportation to training and work assignments and be able to pass a criminal background check.
