Camp Instructors and Counselors

Join us for Summer Camp

We’re looking for candidates who have experience working with kids in camp or club programs, K-12 education, or any other youth mentoring role.

We’re particularly interested in capable public speakers, as well as those who can think on their feet, can adapt to their students’ learning styles, and love teaching STEM topics in a really hands-on way.

Your BadgerBots summer will start with technical training and general program training during the first two weeks of June. Summer camp officially starts in mid-June and continues through the final week of August. All staff will work from the BadgerBots headquarters in Middleton.

Three shift types are possible, depending on the camp topic schedule.

  • All Day (includes 30 minute lunch break) 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
  • Mornings 7:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • Afternoons 12:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
