Summer 2024 Overnight Camp Openings

FOR RESIDENT / OVERNIGHT CAMP Located at Prindle Pond in Charlton, MA

Videographer Counselor: Capturing the Action from Within (18+)

  • What Does a Camp Videographer Do?: 

    • Our camp videographer captures the action, story, and excitement of our campers via photos and video. Their videos help us recruit new heroes each year and capture the excitement of the current year for our families to enjoy. They are part of our story and interact with our campers at the same level we expect of our junior counselors but their main responsibilities are more around generating content than watching campers. 75% of their day is following the campers with a camera, filming backstage videos, or editing to help generate promotional videos. 25% of the time we ask them to step out from behind the camera to help with general support in supervising campers.

  • Duties List:

    • Take videos and photos daily of camp activities

    • Editing while on site to help support a release of up to 3 one-minute videos each camp session

    • Supports other hero leaders and logistics/backstage team

    • Engages in behavior management, dorm duties, and transitioning between activities

    • Role models good conduct for campers and co-counselors

  • Who Makes a Good Story School Staff Member?:

    • Teachers, Coaches, Camp counselors

    • Self-professed nerds and geeks

    • Someone who likes working with neuro-diverse, LBGTQ+, and neurotypical youth in equal parts

    • Someone who plays outside and enjoys puzzles, escape rooms, and role-playing games

    • You?!

  • What Does the Position Pay?:

    • $425 - $475 per week (based on experience) for up to nine weeks plus room and board

Love working with kids?  Have a fascination with the fantasy genre?  Have a very active imagination?  A responsible and good role model?  Don’t mind being hit with foam weapons?  Like to dress in costume and wear cool makeup?  Consider safety BEFORE anything else – no matter how fun?​​​​​

Email camp@thestoryschool.org with any questions around specialty positions

FOR ALL POSITIONS

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 16 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 scheduled for 9 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.

Currently accepting applications from candidates 16+ (position dependent)

Staff must be available from June 19th to August 19th

All applicants must submit three references

All staff, performers, and volunteers must submit to a CORI and SORI Background Check, intensive screening, and reference check.
