Our overnight 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 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.
Our camp counselors receive one of the highest pay rates in the industry.
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 and be at least 19 years of age. 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 schedule for 8 weeks, plus room and board (includes paid training).
Staff must be available from July 5th to September 3rd. All applicants must submit three references and submit to a CORI and SORI Background Check, intensive screening, and reference check.
This is an overnight position with on-site residency required, with one or two days off each week. Counselors are required to reside at the camp for the duration of employment.
