Part-time: June 17 - August 2, 2019

The Old Town School of Folk Music seeks two camp counselors for Summer Camp 2019 at our 4544 N. Lincoln Avenue location. Counselors will attend three days of training and will then be responsible for guiding their campers through the 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM camp day, Monday through Friday, for six weeks. This requires managing their group at all times, participating in music/dance/theater/visual art classes, and helping lead arts-based activities. Camp Counselors will report to the Camp Leader.


Skills & Qualifications: 
  • Applicants for the counselor position must have at least 2 years experience working with children ages 4-6. (For example, in a camp setting, in a school, as a caregiver/babysitter/au pair, in children’s theater, etc.)
  • A background in the arts is critical, and the ideal candidate will work well within a team, and individually. The ideal candidate will be able to take direction from their camp leader, but must also be comfortable leading their group in non-classroom activities.

  • They must: be enthusiastic, be energetic, have excellent communication skills, and be creative problem solvers.
