Collaborator at Tinkering School Summer Camp (most jobs age 18+)
Do you like kids? Do you like building?If so, we invite you to apply to join our team of Collaborators (camp counselors) at our Tinkering School Summer Camps! We work closely with kids ages 8-14 to build amazing things, like a 16’ ferris wheel, a giant moving jellyfish, and gravity-powered go-karts! At our Tinkering camps, kids use real tools and real materials to build projects bigger than themselves. Our Collaborators are people who are as comfortable with a chop saw as they are with cleaning skinned knees and navigating the social-emotional needs of eight-year-olds. Our Collaborators curate and shape a camp environment that tilts towards engagement, following childrens’ lead as they explore, build and bring their imaginative designs to life.
We can teach you how to use tools and you can learn to build alongside the kids, but it is essential that you firmly believe children are already whole people with important things to say.
Dates: All throughout the summer (part of the summer jobs available as well)
