STEMS & Buds Summer camp - Teen Counselor Program:

Each year, teen counselors (ages 13-16) assist with STEMS & Buds Summer Camp. This is a wonderful opportunity for teens who have an interest in nature and working with children. Hours volunteered at the Garden's Camp STEMS & Buds may be applied (with school counselor approval) toward the community service requirement for high school graduation. Applicants will be interviewed and are required to attend a training session in June. Download Teen Counselor Application
