Important Information

NEW! - Camp Assistant Applications

Camp Assistants will be a liaison between the office and the day camps. Among other things, they will be working with camp facilitators and directors to ensure they have the supplies they need and assisting with on-site events such as registration and showcase. While a lot of the work happens at the First Act Office, they’d also be at the camp sites for things like Monday morning check-in and Friday’s showcase.

Camp Assistants will work closely with the Summer Camp Coordinator and Day Camp Staff to make sure all things are ready and running smoothly!  

NOTE: Applicants must be 16 or older and able to drive. This position will be paid based on experience.
