About Manice Education Center

Founded in 1897, Christodora’s Manice Education Center is a nonprofit organization located near Williamstown, Mass. The center operates environmental education, wilderness camping/canoeing and leadership programs for New York City inner-city students.

After on-site training during the month of June, interns co-lead educational activities related to ecology, wilderness, leadership skills and group initiatives with Manice’s field teachers. Summer wilderness education interns host and guide wilderness expeditions (e.g., canoeing and backpacking) around the Northeast. A yearlong internship for college grads is also available, including six months co-teaching environmental education classes to low income middle school students in partner schools in NYC, and six months as a field teacher at the Manice Center.


Open to students with at least one year of college-level work in a related subject. College graduates of any age and grad students may also apply. Lifeguard, first aid and CPR certifications are preferred.
