Jr. Counselors

Are you 15 or 16 years old with experience in the Arts? 

Do you reminisce about the good times you had at camp, the things you learned and the friends you made?  Now’s your chance to help provide those same amazing memories to the campers at PAW.  As a PAW Jr. Counselor, you will assist our staff of professional artists by being a mentor to our campers, setting an example through your character and conduct…and demonstrating many of the skills you have learned through your own arts experiences. 

The PAW JR. Counselor Program is designed to help Jr. Counselors develop leadership skills in a hands-on… Real Worldsetting.  As a Jr. Counselor you will have the opportunity to learn the basics of mentorship while completing volunteer community service hours, which can be listed as experience on a resume for college and work applications.  Most importantly, you will have the joy of contributing ideas to the final performance and seeing your artistic efforts come to life through the children you are helping.

Candidates can choose to become a Jr. Counselor for either our Musical Theater camp working with the acting, dance and voice teachers, or our Guitar Camp, or even our Filmmaking camp…based on their arts background.

PAW allows up to 3 Jr. Counselors per session at every one of our camp locations for outstanding young adults.
To qualify as a Jr. Counselor, students must completely fill out the Jr. Counselor application.  All applications will be reviewed and Jr. Counselors will be selected according to the merit of their application. Students will be notified of the status of their application within 2 weeks of submission.

Junior Counselors Program Tuition:
$295 per two week session
Junior Counselors Hours:
8:00am – 3:00pm
