Summer Academy Explorers Camp Assistants

Volunteers are needed in limited numbers to assist with our Summer Academy Explorers Camp program. This camp provides an educational summer experience for campers at the Academy through week-long programs during July and August. Children age 6 to 12 will participate in hands-on, themed programs that reflect the research of the Academy’s 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.
