CAMP COUNSELORS Male and Female
Counselors supervise students nearly 24/7 in music, recreational, and meal time activities, help with the educational staff in music situations, play in ensembles, help with equipment, and support all efforts of the camp. Any counselor with first aid, lifeguard training, and EMT training should inform the program director upon being hired. Detailed job description and weekly assignment details are listed in this packet. Counselors are members of the on campus staff. A person applying for the position must be 18, or turn 18 during the summer they have been hired to work. The camp counselor performs multiple tasks including morning wake up, breakfast detail, assisting the teaching staff, playing in ensembles, working in the classroom, escorting the students to meals, the routine tasks of cleaning up, copying music, and other duties as assigned. The camp counselor is in charge of supervising the on campus students over night and reports to the head counselors.

The camp counselor is required to be available from Sunday morning to Friday night with the addition of the fourth week Saturday move out.
Teaching staff openings
The program is always looking for a few great instructors. If you love teaching and have something to offer in music education and want to see kids grow, while working with a great group of music educators then we are the program for you. Teachers are required to be available for Sunday night registration and available from Monday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM Monday through Friday, and Friday night for the end of week concert.
A full time Music Educator is generally hired as a band or choir director and usually as the expert as a vocalist or on their instrument, or to represent more than one instrument. Music educators will provide any support materials necessary such as audition materials, small ensemble music, CD recordings, etc.
To qualify as an N.Y.M.P. Music Educator the applicant must have graduated with a performance or music education degree from a University or Conservatory.
The part time staff member will have the same expectations as the full time staff member but will have their schedule set up to be most beneficial to the summer program to work with the students. Part time employees may work past their part time status if they choose.
