Summer Programs and Children's Camps

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science invites teens who are friendly, curious, team-oriented, and great with kids to apply to become volunteers. Opportunities include volunteering with summer camps; in our children’s exhibition, Discovery Zone; or as a Ready on Arrival (ROA) volunteer. We need teens to help us bring the Museum to life for our youngest guests and their families by creating a space that is welcoming and engaging. Applicants must be at least 14 years old by May 31, 2020 to apply. Application deadline is Sunday, March 8, 2020. 

If you have volunteered within the past year, please contact Eric Shames at: Eric.Shames@dmns.org. You do not need to fill out an application.

Teen Science Scholars

Teen Science Scholars complete hands-on summer internships with Science Division staff at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Teen interns strengthen their investigative and communication skills, develop a peer network of students from across the state of Colorado, and share their work and experiences during a Showcase event at the end of the summer.


To be eligible, applicants must be entering their junior or senior year of high school in the fall of 2020, be interested in learning more about a science-related career, and be available for the duration of the internship (early June to mid-August). Teens from groups that have been historically marginalized from the sciences are strongly encouraged to apply, e.g., Hispanic, Latino, African, African American, Black, Native American, and individuals who will be the first generation in their family to complete a four-year college degree.
