Job Description


CAMP 510 is currently hiring local bay area artists and/or makers to teach at our programs this summer 2022. At CAMP 510, we are looking for teachers who are passionate experts in what they teach and who love to impart their skills and enthusiasm to kids!

We are an arts/maker day camp for children ages 6 to 14. We run like a school day, from 9am to 3pm, in weeklong sessions. We divide the campers into groups by age, each group generally having about 15 campers.

Our curriculum is designed to be developmentally appropriate - it scales in degree of difficulty and complexity so that even our youngest campers (ages 6 - 7) are able to engage in our hands-on projects, as well as our oldest campers (ages 9 - 10), who will have an opportunity to delve even deeper into various concepts along with the chance to participate in those same projects as their younger peers, but with more intricacy. (Older campers, ages 10 to 14, work on one project all day, all week, for a deeper dive into a subject or skill.)

We have a team of vibrant and helpful counselors who assist in each project and make sure that the teachers, as well as our campers, have the support that they need. Please check out our website at to learn more about our mission and approach.

CAMP 510 will be operating according to COVID-19 guidelines –sessions can be held in open-air tents, and staff and campers will be required to wear masks at all times. COVID-19 prevention protocol will also be followed, including sanitation of materials, daily screening of staff and campers, etc. Any and all precautions will be put in place to keep all staff, campers, and teachers safe.

Currently, we have openings each week, from June 20 through August 5, 2022.

When you apply, please tell us a bit about yourself, your work, and include photos or links as applicable! Here is what we look for in our teachers:

● passionate about what you do and make! ● skillful communicator ● organized about your curriculum ● some teaching or summer camp experience preferred   

-We are particularly interested in recruiting individuals to teach: electronics/arduino/robotics; programmable textiles; building & carpentry; contraptions a la Rube Goldberg; video; new music; blacksmithing; stained glass; candle & soapmaking etc.; fermenting; soapbox derby/go-kart building. Interested but you do something else? Contact us anyway!-   

We look forward to welcoming you to our program, and having you share what you love!
