Do you love working with students? Are you interested in STEAM education? The goal of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and its educational programs is to bring architecture, design, and the legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright to the K-12 audiences.
Based at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Summer Camp Counselor is responsible for assisting in the preparation and facilitation of developmentally-appropriate Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) camp programs for children in grades 2-10. During camp sessions, the Summer Camp Counselor will assist with the teaching of the summer camp curriculum, supervise students in their activities, communicate tasks to the students, and assist in camp preparation and follow-up tasks.
