Seattle Aquarium marine summer camp—positions available!
If spending an entire summer playing with youth and helping them explore our marine environment at an aquarium sounds better than spending it sitting at a desk in a windowless office, then Seattle Aquarium marine summer camp might be for you! We have four full-time, summer-long jobs available to help our team inspire a love of the marine environment for campers ages 4 to 14. Engage with the natural world and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Camp counselor
Camp counselors are facilitators who are often still honing their craft. They don’t have to be Bill Nye, but they are passionate about education and open to learning on the job.
If you:
Keep an eye out for places you can be helpful
• Excel at being the communication link between many people
• Promote a physically and emotionally safe environment
• Enjoy working directly with youth
We’d love to invite you for an interview.

At work you’ll be facilitating groups of up to 11 campers ages 4–14. Over nine weeks you’ll help one camp lead deliver multiple pre-planned curricula. In your classroom, you’ll have one other counselor and up to two youth camp assistants helping you.

In a given day, you’ll probably:
• Help campers make an ocean-related craft
• Lead campers in their exploration of the Aquarium’s exhibits
• Prep or inventory craft materials
• Share relevant info with camp leads and caregivers

In the same day you might:
• Ensure campers travel to and from a beach safely on a bus
• Explain how changing ocean chemistry affects salmon
• Read a book to a child who’s having a rough day

When? June 21–Sept 1, 2020
What does it pay? $15.75/hour + $0.75/hour for transportation assistance
