2020 NYSCamp Staph* Applications Open

The NYSFoundation plans to operate the National Youth Science Camp (NYSCamp) in 2020 at Camp Pocahontas and is in need of seasonal summer staph*. Thus, applications to be on the 2020 NYSCamp Staph* are now open.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until all positions are filled. Applications submitted after January 31, 2020, might not be considered; however, you are encouraged to apply. Applications will continue to be accepted until all positions are filled. If you have any questions, please send an email to staphapplication@nysf.com.

Most staph* positions are considered cabin/residential staph and will also serve as counselors. Because NYSFoundation programs emphasize the development of close-knit communities, cabin staph will maintain the same hours as the delegates in order to minimize fatigue and cabin disruption and to maximize cohesiveness and community spirit between delegates and staph. Additionally, most staph positions will serve as overnight trip staph* for the programs’ outdoor activities.

As staph positions are filled, slight adjustments will likely be made in job responsibilities. All staph* positions provide general support and frequently assist in other areas; program directors can assign additional duties. The National Youth Science Foundation strives to offer programs that meet the highest standards of fairness and sensitivity with respect to sex and gender, age, race, religion, national origin or physical condition. Behavior that contributes to the creation of an unwelcoming or hostile atmosphere of any kind will not be tolerated.
