Summer Curiosity Camp Volunteers

Summer Curiosity Camp Volunteers

Curiosity Camp Youth Volunteers (ages 14-17) are essential to the educational mission of the RMSC’s Curiosity Camps. Youth Volunteers are energetic, enthusiastic and hardworking. They support paid staff in the camp classrooms by helping the campers with a wide variety of projects and activities. They assist with science experiments and with preparing the classroom and supplies each day. Youth volunteers help provide a fun and safe camp experience while sharing in the exploration of science!
