The Hawthorn Summer Music Camp is seeking hard-working high school musicians to work as counselors in the following areas: one-on-one coach/mentor, sectional leader, activities facilitator, and all-around helper. These employees must be very proficient on their instruments and have an interest in helping younger students.
Camp dates and staff hours are July 17 – 28, 8:00 am – 2:30 pm. There is a mandatory meeting of all camp counselors on Thursday, July 13, at 1:00 pm at South Middle School. We will be setting up the rehearsal areas and will meet to discuss employee expectations and commitment. It is assumed that employees will work the entire two-week camp. If you are unable to do so, please complete the volunteer portion of this application.
New this year - there will be a brief counselor training session provided. This is mandatory for all full-time counselors and optional for volunteers. More information will be available soon. Also new in 2017, those wanting to be paid for working all ten days of camp are required to complete district employment paperwork, including tax forms. These forms will be available at the counselor training as well as the mandatory meeting on July 13th. It must be completed and returned no later than Monday, July 17th.
We will not be accepting all applicants but will choose the most qualified students in each instrument group. If you can work only part of the day or week, you may choose to join us as a volunteer. Volunteer hours can be used toward membership in NHS and other organizations.
You must finalize your work and summer school schedules before you apply for employment at Hawthorn Band/Orchestra Camp.
Thank you for submitting an application! We will contact you in early June when student registration is closed and staffing is finalized.
