Volunteer Opportunity: Eugene Science Center Summer Camps
Eugene Science Center is excited to offer 10 weeks of our Summer Science Adventures camps again this year! These camps serve kids from grade K-8th and focus on a wide range of science themes and topics each week. They need both Camp Counselors and Camp Support. These positions are great for anyone who loves working with kids or is interested in STEM. They are also great for anyone considering pursuing a future in teaching! Volunteers must be 15 years or older.
Note: Eugene Science is strictly following all state guidelines for camps regarding Covid-19. We are doing everything we can to keep campers, staff, and volunteers safe and healthy. To find out more about how ESC is responding to Covid-19, feel free to check out our website here.
Camp Counselors work hands-on with campers in the classroom, leading lessons, activities, and experiments focused on weekly scientific themes/topics. They also prepare lesson plans, prep snacks/lunches, and supervise campers.
Camp Support volunteers assist camp counselors with general support during lessons, including prepping lessons and activities, supervising campers, classroom set-up/clean-up, etc.
