Summer Camp Counselor - Central & South Austin

  • $12.00 - $15.00/hour
  • What is Neuron Garage:
    Neuron Garage is a place where children develop a growth mindset that will allow them to continually grow
    and thrive in our rapidly changing world. Through engaging hands-on building, where they repurpose recycled materials in order to solve a weekly challenge, children stretch themselves and develop their creative thinking, collaboration skills, confidence and resilience.

    Camp Counselor Position:
    This camp is a transformative experience for children, and as a Camp Counselor, you get to be a part of this magic. In the course of just one week, your careful guidance can have a lasting impact on their futures.

    You will be responsible for creating a safe, nurturing, fun environment for elementary age children to experiment, struggle, play and learn by:

    • Ensuring the physical and emotional safety of every Camper.
    • Setting up and maintaining an environment and the materials necessary for weekly creative problem-solving challenges.
    • Inspiring and motivating every Camper through positive feedback and thoughtful questions.
    • Encouraging Campers to embrace problem solving and failure by modeling curiosity, flexible thinking, perseverance, empathy, and a positive attitude.

    The days are non-stop and it is well worth all of the energy you will put in. This summer will change your life. You will become a stronger communicator, leader and team player. It will change the way you interact not only with children, but with everyone – whether in a classroom, a boardroom or at home with the people you love most.
