Art Camp Instructor Counselor – Moose Hill

Location: Sharon, MA
Sanctuary: Moose Hill

Have fun this summer as you actively enrich the lives of children through hands-on art projects, nature activities, and games! Explore a wide variety of art mediums including paint, ink, yarn, clay, wax, and music! You will also get to explore our extensive trail system and the diversity of life found in our upland forest, meadows, red maple swamp, and vernal pools with small groups of campers ages 9-13.

Your role is two-fold—first as a counselor who supervises the campers’ health and safety, promotes positive youth development, teaches a variety of art skills, explores nature, and teaches other games. And second as an instructor who connects children to nature through hand-on art projects. We provide you with goals and some activities for each weekly session. You will work with other staff to create additional age-appropriate lessons, games and crafts. Training includes nature study elements as well as teaching techniques. You will also be the camp art expert, and you will help other staff create great art projects for other camper groups.

You may also spend time as a Nature Leader with a group if a week of Art Camp does not run. To discover more about our Art Camp program check out our summer camp brochure at Moose Hill Brochure, and discover more about us on our website, Moose Hill Camp!
