Summer Camp Teachers Job at Kids Science Labs, Chicago, IL

  • Kids Science Labs
  • Chicago, IL

Job Description

Come inspire kids during Winter/Spring camps with creative design projects, problem solving, and inspiring classes. Work with a great team and students who love learning and innovating. This position will be for our Summer Break.

Kids Science Labs, the leader in hands-on science education, is hiring for our upcoming camps. We are looking for talented team members to join us as we inspire the next generation of creative thinkers and leaders. Each day we engage our students with hands-on projects that help them relate core science concepts to their everyday lives, we hope to inspire them, engage them, and have fun along the way.

If you are a college student or teacher, we encourage you to apply to our program. Our program provides a challenging and rewarding experience and we provide the training and tools that enable you to become a better innovator, problem solver, and leader, all while laughing, engaging, and having fun each and everyday with students.

We are hiring for all our locations: Lincoln Park (1500 N. Kingsbury Chicago, IL), South Loop (1801 S. Indiana Chicago, IL), Roscoe Village (3322 N. Wester Ave Chicago, IL), Northbrook (840 Willow Road Northbrook, IL), Wheaton (275 Rice Lake Square Wheaton, IL) and Seattle (405 NE 71st St Seattle, WA)

Typical days are 8am-4pm with a break (our students are in the center from 9am-3pm). We offer camp Monday-Friday from June through all of August. We have a great team, work hard, and have fun.

Why Kids Science Labs?

We believe that wondering “why” can change the world, and our goal each and every day is to teach kids how. We will coach you how to apply innovation, design, and creativity to life's everyday challenges to help kids become better problem solvers themselves.

We believe firmly that great teachers are everywhere, so whether you are an student, nanny, or teacher in a traditional classroom, if you can communicate well, engage kids, and have the desire to provide exceptional customer service to fellow teachers, parents, and the kids that visit KSL, then we likely want to speak with you. We have a training program for people outside the education industry who desire to become teachers. Creative artists, theatre majors, music educators, and child psychology majors who love helping kids learn, are all encouraged to apply to Kids Science Labs.

Roles and Responsibilities:

Our teachers / team members are critical to our success. We enable and inspire thousands of kids everyday through our passionate work. Therefore, our summer camp team is required to be curious and adaptive. You will engage students in a program that includes a hands-on discovery science class, as well as two electives in the afternoon in art, critical thinking, problem solving, lego design, and general science.

Make no mistake, although we laugh and have fun, the work is both challenging and rewarding. It also involves you spending time in a progressive classroom environment that is all about building fundamental skills in kids that lead to their (and your own) long-term outperformance. Come build some lifelong friendships with our teachers, camp counselors, and team leads.


We are looking for team members who:

  • Enjoy being with, engaging, and adapting to children
  • Ability to manage or help manage a classroom
  • BS/BA degree completed or in progress (preferably in art, science, communication, early childhood education, theatre or psychology)
  • Positive attitude and a need to smile
  • Ability to adapt and operate in a dynamic and creative environment
  • Excitement for teaching and the adventure of learning
  • Strong decision making skills
  • Relate to Kids Science Labs mission and core values
  • Desire to work successfully with and support a team


We offer competitive hourly rates. Depending on the teaching role you will make between $20-24/hr.
