Summer Staff: Penikese Science + Nature Camp

June 27 - August 2, 2024

Each summer we seek 5 seasonal staff to operate our Science + Nature Camp for Girls.  


Camp consists of five 1-week-long (Mon-Fri) residential sessions on the remote island of Penikese, located 13 miles off Cape Cod.  Our goal is to empower middle-school girls and gender-expansive youth in the sciences by providing them with role models of women in STEM.  Campers will explore the island, engage with guest scientists and artists through hands-on activities, play games, and have fun!

We have filled all positions for the 2024 summer season.
