Volunteer Counselor Program – For Rising 9th-12th Graders

The counselor application is for the student to complete. If there are questions, the candidate should email us, not the parent. The ArtsCamp Counselor program is meant to prepare students for applying for jobs in the future, and we want to hire candidates who show initiative and maturity by being responsible for all stages of the application.

Please email Eileen Quinn at with questions about the ArtsCamp Counselor program.



Junior Counselor Program – For Rising 7th and 8th Graders

Starting this year, we will be offering an all-new Junior Counselor program, open to rising 7th and 8th grade students who have attended ArtsCamp for multiple summers and are interested in becoming an ArtsCamp counselor when they get older.

Please email Eileen Quinn at with questions about the Junior Counselor program.
