Hands-On House

Summer Camp Teachers & Assistants

Hands-on House Children’s Museum of Lancaster is seeking summer camp teachers to bring new life into our summer camp programs.

We have lots of stuff to make interactive learning fun. We are looking for teachers interested in putting our materials to good use to make our summer camp program extra special for children ages 4-10. With three large storage areas of educational materials and games including light tables, water tables, catapults, dinosaurs, bugs, foods, maps, and much more, this is a mini paradise for creative teachers!

Our plan is to have small groups of campers rotate through activity zones. You will use your strengths to develop activities for your zone and work with assigned staff/volunteers to deliver the learning and fun! Whether your interest is science, math, art, gardening, games, drama, or something else, this is a great opportunity to get kids excited about learning through play.

A successful candidate will be able to work part-time June 7 – August 17. Our format enables you to have some getaway time as well.

You must have a fun-loving personality, be able to will work with a budget, plan and prep independently, and be driven to bring smiles to the faces of children while following COVID-19 guidelines.
