Camp Aide Application for Summer 2022

If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Eldridge, Director of Public Programs, at melissa@briarbush.org or call (215) 887-6603.

Please review the details of our Camp Aide Program below before completing the application.

Camp Aide Program

Camp Aides are an important aspect of Briar Bush Nature Center's Summer Camp Program. Our Camp Aide Program is designed to give teens the opportunity to serve alongside Summer Camp staff while gaining naturalist, leadership, and communication skills, earning community service hours, building resume experience, and having a fun-filled summer.

Camp Aides will assist the counselors with camp preparation, group management, daily activities, and camp cleanup. Camp Aides are expected to model appropriate behavior and actively participate in games and activities, nature exploration, and support campers.

Briar Bush Nature Center seeks hard-working, patient, fun-loving, and energetic teens to volunteer for our Camp Aide Program. Camp Aides must be 13+ years of age and volunteer for a minimum of two weeks of Summer Camp.

Please keep in mind that Briar Bush Nature Center will most likely implement requirements for masking, distancing, testing, and/or vaccination based on recommendations from local public health experts and/or government agencies. We will issue updates to our policies on an ongoing basis.

Camp Aide Application

Interested? Complete this application for consideration. It will be best to complete this application with a parent/guardian as you will need to keep summer plans/vacations in mind and will be asked for your summer availability.

The deadline for applications is Friday, April 8, 2022 at 5:00pm. Your application will be reviewed and you will be contacted shortly after the deadline.

* As there are a limited number of positions and an overwhelming number of applications, please note that completing an application does not guarantee a Camp Aide position. Priority will be given to previous Camp Aides. *
