Our Junior Camp Leader Program is a volunteer opportunity for motivated teenagers interested in science education and leadership training.
Junior Camp Leaders assist our Education Team in preparing and leading science experiments and activities, plan, organize and lead activities during free-play breaks (with guidance and oversight from our Education Team), and assist our young campers to ensure they have a great week of camp.
Our camps are located at Discover Science Center (2500 Old Alabama Rd, Suites 5 and 21, Roswell) from 8:30am-4:30pm. We also have extended hours from 8:00am-5:30pm. We also offer STEM Summer Camps at Atlanta Academy (2000 Holcomb Woods Parkway, Roswell) from 8:00am-3:00pm.
Junior Camp Leaders may sign up for 2-11 weeks of summer camp (full-day or half-day sessions), and are expected to work every day for that week to maintain consistency for our campers.

Junior Camp Leader duties include:
Junior Camp Leaders benefit from increased levels of responsibility and independence, as well as have unique science experiences and training. Volunteer hours may be used as community service hours, and we are happy to provide reference letters for Junior Camp Leaders that perform their duties well.
There are no costs or stipends associated with being a Junior Camp Leader. It is a volunteer position, however, we take their commitment seriously and expect Junior Camp Leaders fulfill the shifts for which they registered. Junior Camp Leaders should bring their own snacks, lunch and water bottle to camp each day.
