Summer Explorers Camp Assistants
A limited number of volunteers are needed to assist with our Summer Explorers Camp program. This camp provides an educational summer experience for campers at the Academy from during week long programs during July and August. Children aged 6 to 12 will participate in hands-on, themed programs that reflect the research of the Academy’s own scientists. Campers might conduct experiments with scientists, sketch with Academy artists, explore the museum’s research labs and animals and plant collections, or meet a variety of interesting live animals. They also take science on the road with weekly trips. Themes explored include water, animals, fossils, nature, and insects. Volunteers engage campers in informal, hands-on activities (arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor games, and free play) both in the museum and on weekly field trips throughout the Delaware Valley. Minimum age: 14. Internships are also available for college students interested in Museum Education.
