Camp Assistant – Full Time / Part Time
Join us to work with kids and aircraft this holiday season at the Hiller Aviation Museum! Our Aviation Camp staff helps elementary-aged campers to build and fly model aircraft, launch rockets, complete flight simulation missions, conduct flight-related science experiments and more while working behind-the-scenes at a unique Museum located at one of California’s busiest small airports.
Assistants must have experience working with elementary-aged children and possess a high school diploma, except that high school students entering their senior year in Fall 2021 will be considered if they have volunteered at the Hiller Aviation Museum previously and/or have comparable experience from another museum. College credits, familiarity with science and aviation or volunteer experience at a museum are a plus. Assistant positions vary with enrollment; most assistants should expect to work 5-8 hours per day while Aviation Camp is in session, with occasional opportunities for weekend hours. Most full-time shifts last 8 AM – 4:30 PM or 9 AM – 5:30 PM. Aviation Camp runs June 7 – August 27 with training June 3-5. Applicants should have availability weekdays August 2-20 in order to be considered.
Camp Assistants are responsible for supporting Aviation Camp in all capacities. Assistants supervise elementary school-aged campers during sign-in, sign-out and break times and coordinate aviation-themed games during breaks. Assistants also prepare materials and work directly with instructors as needed during hands-on projects and activities.
Assistant positions pay $15.50-$16.50/hr depending on experience.
