Teach About a Subject You Care About
Each year, Destination Science hosts four themed camps at our locations across the United States. We work hard to come up with ideas that will appeal to our young campers and give them a worthwhile experience that will translate into greater interest in the subject.
That means we have jobs available across a range of subjects, which may include:
No matter your background, you can find a place for your expertise at Destination Science. Our teachers love sharing knowledge they’ve gleaned firsthand through experience or by teaching certain subject matter again and again. When you connect with a subject you love, you’ll feel energized, and the campers will connect with that energy.
There’s nothing better than a motivated teacher who loves what they’re doing. We’re looking to fill science and STEM summer camp counselor jobs with people who can bring that type of passion to their position.
