Teen Summer Camp Assistant
2 people are interested
The National Aviary teen volunteer program is open to students who will be 14-17 years old by June 1, 2020. Teens help us to advance our mission during our busiest season of the year. Students gain valuable skills and avian knowledge while experiencing the daily life of a bird zoo.
We ask for a minimum commitment of at least 35 hours for the 2020 summer camp season which runs June 15-July 24, 2020.
Teens interested in education or childhood development may work as a Summer Camp Assistant. These volunteers will be assigned to work at least one full week of camp. Camp Assistants help National Aviary educators with camp lessons and activities from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm Monday - Friday. Camp is held both indoors and outside. For teens with a busy summer schedule, the entire 35 hour commitment can be earned in one week.
