If so, we have a seat for you in the spotlight alongside the Camp WAVE staff. Make sure you pack a team-focused work style, a multi-tasking brain, enough energy to spread your passion for the environment to all campers, your Elastigirl level of flexibility, and your wand to spread your version of magic over this amazing camp.
Jr. Camp Counselor:
The Junior Camp Counselor Program is an educational boot camp for 14 to 17 year old individuals interested in a career in science, teaching, or working with children. Students will learn about our animals, the aquarium exhibits, local and global conservation efforts, techniques for teaching children as well as behavior modification. During Camp WAVE, junior counselors will assist in storytelling, game initiating, page coloring, home sick mending, high-five giving, line leading, note taking, clue charading, and world changing interpretive moments.
For a junior camp counselor, we require a minimum of 24 full days, Mon-Fri, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, June 4th – August 10th. There is a strong preference for junior counselors to volunteer for 3 days per week. Jr. Camp Counselors cannot volunteer more than 3 days a week. Teens will be able to schedule themselves on the volunteer database once accepted.
We are now accepting applications for summer 2019. Applications for 2019 will be accepted through December 15, 2018.
Applications completed online will be automatically submitted to WAVE Foundation’s Community Engagement Office. Should you have any questions regarding the application or any of the volunteer opportunities, contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 859.815.1424.
