The Oregon Zoo's Urban Nature Overnights (UNO) program is an outdoor recreation and youth development program that provides an opportunity for youth (ages 8 to 11) from historically underrepresented groups to camp overnight at local parks, including Oxbow Regional Park, Eagle Creek in the Columbia River Gorge, and Wildwood Recreation Area.
The UNO program has been around for 20 years, and we are looking for an UNO Program Summer Coordinator to bring passion, experience, and their own perspective and ideas to the program. We hope you'll consider joining our collaborative team to create a great program for young people this summer!

The UNO Summer Program Coordinator is expected to stay overnight during all overnights and will typically work a Monday through Friday schedule during the summer, and weekends in the spring. Overtime pay will be applied to any shifts over eight hours (including all overnight shifts).
