PARI counselors play an instrumental role in inspiring a thirst for learning and discovery—while also encouraging leadership, teamwork and fun—in the next generation of scientists.
Our counselors play a crucial role in the health, safety, and well-being of their campers while helping to foster friendships and relationships.
We encourage our counselors to lead a piece of the camp curriculum—like breaking news in astrobiology, radio telescope usage, building and launching model rockets, or even guiding morning jogs—so they feel a sense of responsibility in guiding the next generation of scientists to discover their passions.
PARI counselors are also given the opportunity to embark on their own journey of space and science research, allowing for personal growth, deeper learning and pride in a culture that they’ll take with them forever.
We’ll be looking for candidates who are interested in taking on two roles:
Part of the summer will consist of hands-on education, research, and recreational activities with campers and becoming a role model and guide for their exploration of STEM and space science.
These counselors will also have the opportunity to plan their own research or project while taking advantage of PARI facilities, instruments and the support of its staff.
