Be A PARI Camp Counselor


Spend this summer guiding our future generation of scientists

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 are 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.
