Summer Camp Directors and Counselors
Join Us For A Great Summer!
The benchmark of a successful summer camp experience and what a child remembers most about their camp experience is usually the camp’s staff members.

Club SciKidz demands that all staff positions be filled with candidates who exhibit the following characteristics:
- High work ethic (completing the job with an excellent attitude!)
- And above all … an absolute love for children, desire to make sure the camper has an unforgettable camp experience/memory, and a genuine interest in science!
NOTE:If you do not exhibit these characteristics, then Camp Staff is not for you! Our camp day is filled with many science activities and our classrooms are normally sold out! Our camper to staff ratio is 10:1.
