Junior Camp Counselors are expected to commit to two camps during the summer. Each camp is a week in length and a total of 40 hours. Applicants will be scheduled for an interview with the Volunteer Coordinator and the Education Director or Education Coordinator. Those offered a position must attend a "Science is Everywhere" orientation held in May.
