Organization Description

Centauri Summer Arts Camp
Centauri is a sleep-over camp specialising in intensive arts training from youth. Each summer, we hire dozens of arts professionals with teaching experience to run programs for us in theatre, dance, art, photography, film, creative writing and music. Some professionals work with us for as little as 8 days while others run consecutive programs and work all summer.

Job Description

We are looking for university or college students with a keen interest in the arts to join the staff team at our overnight arts camp this summer. This is an 8 week contract, and involves taking care of young girls in our dorms, planning camp activities, and assisting in an arts department (depending on your skills and interests). We had already hired all our counsellors for the summer, but enrollment is higher than expected so we are adding 1-2 additional counsellors to the team. 


What can we offer you? Leadership experience, and experience running activities for youth; a fun summer in an exciting arts community; the chance to develop teaching skills; an opportunity to learn more about yourself as you meet the needs of a diverse camp population. Counsellors receive all living expenses, extensive training, and an honorarium for the summer.  



Applicants should be registered in full time education at the college or university level, and returning to full time education in the Fall. You should have an understanding of the unique demands of working on an overnight camp, and be an excellent role model for young people. We are looking for people who are kind by nature, team players, passionate about the arts and utterly reliable. If you would like to spend your summer as part of a vibrant arts community, we need to hear from you today!
