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.

Experience Requirements

Assistants must have experience working with elementary-aged children and possess a high school diploma. College credits, familiarity with science and aviation or volunteer experience at the 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 7:30 AM – 4:00 PM or 9:30 AM – 6:00 PM.  Aviation Camp runs intermittently December 20 – January 6, and starting June 8, 2020.  Applicants will be considered for holiday and/or summer employment depending on their availability.

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 $13.50 – $15/hr depending on experience.
