Camp Assistant – Full Time / Part Time

Join us to work with kids and aircraft this summer 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, except that high school students entering their senior year in Fall 2022 will be considered if they have volunteered at the Hiller Aviation Museum previously. 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 6 – September 2 with training June 2-4.  Applicants should have availability for at least seven weeks of the summer, or the entire period July 25 – August 12 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 $17.00-$19.00/hr depending on experience, with an additional $100/wk bonus for availability July 25 – August 12.
