“I spend my days working with people who are passionate about hanging out with kids. I live in a beautiful place, and most importantly, I get to share my love of science with my staff and watch them share theirs with the kids. All of my best memories from the last five years have been connected to working with kids in some way. Whether it was taking kids snorkeling, watching them discover the stars, or going on adventures with staff, all of them have been wonderful.”
Charlie Bueche joined Guided Discoveries in 2009 and has served as a Marine Science Instructor and Aquarist, Assistant Program Director of Logistics, Summer Camp Director for Camp Fox YMCA Programs, Program Director at Cherry Cove and Fox Landing, and currently as the Program Director for AstroCamp & Camp Motorsport. He is responsible for the safety of all students and teachers, and is charged with the hiring, training and managing the staff.
Charlie worked at the Biological Field Station in Cooperstown, N.Y., during college. With a bachelor’s degree in biology from SUNY Geneseo, Charlie applied for a job at CIMI with the plan to stay for two years, but, he says, little did he know about the magical draw of working at Guided Discoveries.
Charlie also is a NAUI-certified Rescue Diver and American Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor Trainer.
