Become a Summer Camp Volunteer at Gilbert House Children’s Museum!

Week 6 of GHCM's Summer Camp Series: Volunteers are needed to assist in Astronaut Camp! Join us the week of August 8-12 and help young stargazers as the blast off on a "Mission to Mars"! Campers will learn about craters, design a mars colony, build mini-rovers, and launch rockets as they become aerospace engineers for a week. You don’t have to be an expert! Just be willing to assist campers as they explore and support educators as they teach! Gain valuable knowledge in child supervision, group management, curriculum facilitation, customer service and public speaking! Volunteer experience is not required and training is provided.
