Artist Assistants

Registration for camp 2021 will be available in March when we know what our capacity limitations will be. It is our hope to offer spots to any middle schooler interested in attending. An email will go out to those registered for camp in 2020 - please stay tuned!

This year, kids entering 7th - 8th grades (previously 6th - 8th grades) are invited to be a part of the Artist Assistant program. Artist Assistants (AAs) make a huge impact on campers and staff, and therefore should be responsible, have an interest in arts and crafts, be enthusiastic and have a positive attitude. AAs will be trained and mentored throughout their time at camp and will gain loads of experience working with others on the many tasks that create a memorable camp experience for the younger grades.

 

The most important daily job of an AA is helping campers. AAs will direct campers in the hallways and common areas and will help campers with their work. In addition to helping campers, AAs will be required to assist teachers and group leaders in setting up classrooms for various art projects, cleaning up after projects and gathering supplies as needed.

 

AAs get to have arts & crafts fun too! AAs will take one or two classes as a group each day and will learn things like advanced drawing and painting, ceramics, jewelry making, sewing and more! Interested middle schoolers should apply for a position and will learn of their placement within 3 weeks.
