Job Details


This Summer, Change a Life Through Theater
A Summer of Opportunity

Counselors are the heart of the Ghostlight Theater Camp community. They create opportunities for campers to be creative and joyful, support their social-emotional growth, and help camp operate efficiently, safely, and with maximum levels of fun, connection and transformation. 

The role of a counselor

As a Ghostlight Counselor, your job is to support your campers throughout their time at camp. You will:

  • Live with campers in a cabin, sleep in a bunk bed, eat 3 meals a day in the dining pavilion, share a bathroom, and make theater.
  • Instruct or assist a camp activity, such as dance, scene-study, improv, a cappella, nature, cooking, or yoga.
  • Collaborate on our festival of shows! We are particularly seeking counselors with props design, lighting, and stage management experience.
  • Be fully present with campers, listening when they want to talk, and giving them your full attention.
  • Model self-care and best creative practices for campers by growing and investing in inclusivity, self-expression, participation, and self-reliance. 
  • Bring your unique talents, compassionate heart, endless enthusiasm, and best self to our incredible community of artists.

Counselors must be available for a week of training before camp begins. All counselors will have an interview once they apply and are subject to a background check before they can attend camp. Counselors will receive on-line training in advance of camp as well as orientation when they get to camp.

Ghostlight Counselors are inclusive, authentic, good role models, and always there for the camper.
