Do you want to inspire curiosity and foster independence in children? Are you high-energy and at least a little bit goofy?

Join the Neuron Garage team and earn summer income while developing your professional skills. This camp is a transformative experience for children, and as a Camp Counselor, you get to be a part of this magic. In the course of just one week, your careful guidance can have a lasting impact.

You will be responsible for creating a safe, nurturing, fun environment for elementary age children to experiment, struggle, play and learn by:

  • Ensuring the physical and emotional safety of every Camper.
  • Setting up and maintaining an environment and the materials necessary for weekly creative problem-solving challenges.
  • Inspiring and motivating every Camper through positive feedback and thoughtful questions.
  • Encouraging Campers to embrace problem solving and failure by modeling curiosity, flexible thinking, perseverance, empathy, and a positive attitude.

A summer with Neuron Garage is a super-charged experience working with children. The days are non-stop and it is well worth all of the energy you will put in. This summer will change your life.

With a different group of children each week, you get tons of practice encouraging classroom community, building trusting relationships, delivering curriculum, and helping children develop important social-emotional skills.
