CAMP 510 exists to cultivate a community of makers who have the creative agency and confidence to help shape a better world.
This may seem like a lofty goal. How does making stuff lead to a better world?
To make something is to empower yourself-- and to succeed in making something often comes through a process of risk-taking, curiosity, mistakes, revisions, prototyping and implementation. In this process of making, children build creative confidence, resilience, and a deep sense of their own power to influence their environment.
Some of the skills practiced through hands-on making include: learning to solve problems creatively; exploring and mastering tools and techniques; perseverance found in trying and failing and trying again; working alone and collaboratively; sharing a personal voice through both effort and creative vision.
At CAMP 510 we curate these experiences and opportunities for kids. We do this in a community of thoughtful, engaged artists and makers, and we meet the campers where they are at--in developmentally and age appropriate ways. As a counselor, you will be in a unique position to provide a bridge between CAMPers, Junior Counselors, and adult staff.
We accept counselor applications from applicants who are entering the 11th grade up until their senior year of college. Counselor shifts are no longer than 8 hours and may begin as early as 8:00am and end as late at 6:15pm. Counselors can work anywhere from 20-40 hours per week depending on their availability and camp needs.
If you have any questions about the application or the counselor position, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
