The Franklin Institute seeks Camp Specialists/Teachers

The Franklin Institute (located in Philadelphia, PA), partnering with Education, Sports and Fun (ESF) Summer Camps, is seeking dedicated and energetic teachers to lead our pre-K through 7th grade summer camp classes. ESF Camps are award-willing, filled with the perfect blend of education, sports, and fun, and provide a safe and supportive environment where new experiences can be tried and individual achievement is encouraged. The summer camp teachers will bring classes developed from The Franklin Institute curriculum to the ESF camps in order to immerse campers through hands-on, authentic learning experiences with exposure to “real-world” experts, special guests, and field trips. The teachers will inspire campers to think creatively, critically, and innovatively, while empowering them to explore the world around them and solve real-life, practical issues that engage their hearts and minds, culminating in an ultimate group project. The ideal applicant will have a Bachelor’s degree, teaching certification, at least 2 years of classroom and/or camp experience, and must have previous experience teaching children. The camps run from June through August, with training taking place over a weekend in June in Philadelphia, PA. Lodging, transportation and meals will be provided by The Franklin Institute.

Locations of teaching opportunities:

The Gilman School – Baltimore, MD

The Georgetown Prep School – North Bethesda, MD

About The Franklin Institute:

As the most visited museum in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and a top-five tourist destination in the City of Philadelphia, The Franklin Institute is one of the leading science centers in the country, and serves as both a prominent educational and cultural resource, and as an anchor of the local economy. Every day The Franklin Institute provides resources that help people to connect with science and technology in creative ways that resonate with learners of all ages and backgrounds. The Institute directly reaches more than 1 million people each year with informal learning experiences that engage students, adults, and families. Though its historic museum is a central learning space, the Institute has evolved to provide people with educational resources in their own neighborhoods through hands-on activities in classrooms, workshops in libraries, community centers, and other settings, and through ways to interact online. Since 1824, The Franklin Institute has pursued its commitment to making these resources available to as many people as possible throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
