EMPLOYMENT

Summer 2021 Camp Openings

FOR RESIDENT / OVERNIGHT CAMP

Resident Camp Counselor/Hero Leader (19+)

Our hero leaders are camp counselors who provide a safe and memorable 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 activities. Hero leaders have a genuine passion for mentoring and empowering young people. Help our heroes navigate the world of Sidleterra, teach them what it means to be a hero, and help create a summer of lasting memories.

Our camp counselors are paid significantly higher than the industry average.

FOR ALL POSITIONS

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. In return, our expectations are high. We require you to be responsible, flexible, and reliable. You must fully embrace and adhere to the concept that this camp is for the campers. As such, the roles you play and the positions you hold are always in service of the entertainment value.  This is an exhausting, demanding job that requires both physical and mental endurance. But you will have the time of your life and we can guarantee that you will never be bored!

 

All camp staff are required to have previous experience working with kids and teens and be at least 18 years of age. Acting experience 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.

Please note that Wizards & Warriors Camp is owned and run by parents. Our own children attend these camps. Safety is our highest concern. We expect that it will be yours as well. References required. Pay is dependent on experience and schedule for 8 weeks, plus room and board (includes paid training). 

 

This is an overnight position with onsite residency required with one or two days off each week and counselors are required to reside at the camp for the duration of employment.

In addition to enjoying one more summer as a hero, these campers will also receive leadership training to prepare them for potential future counselor positions.
