      Teaching artists could come to camp to facilitate their activity with campers for 1 day a week or conduct just a one-time visit during one of the weeks or just two of the weeks, whichever works better with their schedule, we are flexible. Our program days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  The day would start at 9am and end at 5:30pm and the teaching artist would teach 4-5 groups during that time (1 hour per group), with lunch served at 12pm (lunch is provided onsite for all). Each group consists of 10-15 campers (divided based on gender and age), counselor supervision and assistance is provided at all times.

      Pay: The pay will depend on the activity, the amount of time committed, and the teaching artist’s experience. We are a non-profit camp and do not charge our families a single penny to attend camp. Our funds are 100% provided by corporate sponsors and generous funders. Though we work with a very limited budget, we will do our best to work out an amount that meets the artist’s expectations. We also welcome volunteers, if anyone is able to volunteer their time to help teach our campers new skills we are open to them coming to camp for just a few hours here and there, or as much as they want.

      Transportation: All our program facilitators who reside in NYC will take the Metro North railroad from Grand Central station to Peekskill train station and will be picked up from the Peekskill train station by one of our staff members and transported to camp, and then back again to the train station. We do not provide transportation to and from NYC.

      Qualifications: Some experience teaching children in any setting (camp, community, educational) is required. Minimum age is 18. Must be an energetic, flexible, patient, and motivated individual with a passion for their art and helping children learn new skills. Must be responsible and committed, able to manage time effectively. Must be comfortable working in a casual summer camp setting (rugged, outdoors, upstate New York, “one with nature”).

      To Apply: Email cover letter and resume to Application deadline: May 15th.
