June 7th, 2021-July 26th,2021 *Returning Teen Assistants Only*
Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, we will only be hosting a very small in-person camp this summer. As such, we are only going to be bringing on Teen Assistants who have already participated in the program in the past. If this does not apply to you, we recommend you look into the summer season of the Teen Wild Guides or join us for summer 2022 when we should be able to run a full camp once again. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
About the Program
Love kids, nature, and ZooCamp? We need your help! Join our ZooCamp Teen Assistant program and spend three weeks playing with kids, helping to lead activities, making crafts, dressing up in costumes and, of course, having fun all while earning community service hours. Teen Assistants are truly an integral part of the camp experience! Teen Assistants should be energetic and enjoy spending time with children. This program is designed for teens entering grades 9–12 in the Fall of 2021.
TAs must commit to working three weeks during the summer, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., and may be invited back for additional weeks as the schedule allows.
You will be assigned to a ZooCamp class and will assist your teacher with tours, games, crafts and general camp merriment!
We will not be bringing on any new Teen Assistants this summer (2021). If you have been a Teen Assistant in the past and wish to volunteer again this summer, please email me using the link below.
After all applications have been received, they will be scored and the highest scoring applicants will be accepted.
Applicants will be notified of their status by email on or before May 30, 2021.
The final number of TAs accepted is determined by the number of camp classes and enrollment.
One 6-hour training session is also required, which will be held on a Saturday (specific date will be posted as we get closer to Summer).
