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