Learn the skills needed to become an outstanding future Youth Teaching Assistant (YTA) in a one-week intensive training program guided by Smithsonian instructors and the camp program manager. Participants learn how to successfully work with young campers, build a toolkit of games and activities, practice navigating busy Smithsonian museums with groups, and gather other practical tips to help campers get the most out of their experience. Students entering grade 9 in the fall of 2023 or who are 14 years old are eligible to participate. Completing the boot camp offers applicants a priority for YTA selection the following summer.
