Special Participating Youth (SPY) Volunteers

are summertime volunteers between the ages of 12 and 15. SPYs commit to 40 hours of service and 20 hours of training for a total of 60 hours over the spring and summer.

SPYs train to help with or present ParticiPlays® in the Simmons Storybook Theater, assist with or conducted activities in the Art Garden, present Exhibit Spotlights, lead games and activities in the Exhibit Galleries, and prepare materials for exhibits or for use in the Art Garden. SPYs not only learn lots but they give lots, too, as they provide all those hours of service between June and August at Treehouse.

In order to become a SPY, you must complete an application and write a letter telling Treehouse staff why you would like to be a Treehouse SPY. Applicants are then given a face to face interview before final selection decisions are made.

Please note that due to the volume of applications received, not all applicants will be interviewed.

The SPY program has been put on hold because of the temporary closure of the Museum in response to the COVID-19 virus. We'll reschedule the program as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding.
