The Junior Counselors Program is a volunteer opportunity for high school students, ages 14 to 19, interested in helping to create amazing theatre experiences with pre-school and elementary age children. Participants will learn the ins and outs of a professional theatre training program while aiding students’ creation of original stories, characters, and design elements. All junior counselors will be assigned to a group of campers and will assist the classroom teacher with rehearsals and production for the week. This program gives participants the opportunity to serve as a role model and leader for younger campers. It is a great opportunity for teenagers interested in working with children and/or theatre—not to mention a fun and interactive way to earn those much needed volunteer hours!
