Job Description
Fantasy and STEM Summer Camp Day Counselor

 

Part Gandalf and part Mary Poppins, Hero leaders guide our heroes through their entire adventure at camp, from the action on the battlefield to free time in the recreational areas. Our Day Camp counselors get to join the fun by playing the characters and monsters our heroes battle with foam swords and NERF blasters. Duties include monitoring meals, playing camp characters (in costume), and facilitating and participating in group activities. Help teach the next generation what it means to be a hero, and help create a summer of lasting memories.

 

Do you:
- Love working with kids, especially in a hands-on educator or instructor capacity?
​- Have a fascination with the fantasy genre or STEM?
​- Have a very active imagination?
​- Feel you're responsible and a good role model?
- Don't mind being hit with foam weapons?
​- Like to dress in costume and wear cool makeup?
​- Consider safety BEFORE anything else – no matter how fun?

Then you should apply to work with us!

 

Our day camp counselors (or Hero Leaders) provide a safe, memorable, immersive, and educational experience for our heroes. Hero Leaders will be responsible for an assigned adventuring party of up to 10 campers. Duties include monitoring meals, playing camp characters (in costume), and facilitating and participating in group STEM and LARP activities. Hero leaders have a genuine passion for mentoring and empowering young people. Help our heroes navigate the fantasy world of Sidleterra, teach them what it means to be a hero, and help create a summer of lasting memories.

 

We provide training, costumes (although you can bring your own!), props, makeup, and foam weapons.

 

All camp staff members are required to have previous experience working with kids and teens. Acting experience as well as early education is not necessary but does help. We’re interested in mature decision-makers – counselors and performers who like to take part in a creative, improvisational environment – but always with safety foremost in their mind. You must be exceptionally reliable and a good communicator. Punctuality is necessary as the nature of these activities requires precision timing. Professionalism is mandatory.

Pay is dependent on experience and scheduled for 7 weeks (including paid training).

 

Staff must be available for a paid week of camp training between June 20th and July 8th. Camp weeks are July 11th - August 26th . All applicants must submit three references and submit to a CORI and SORI Background Check, intensive screening, and reference check.

 

This is a day camp position requiring hours from 8:30am - 3:30pm Monday - Friday.
 
Pay range: $350 - $450 per week based on previous experience and skills
