2021 SummerFun! Counselor Application
SummerFun! seeks Arlington High School students who demonstrate trainable leadership qualities and value attitude, dependability, cooperation, kindness and working with children. Teens will be assigned to classes, where they will assist the lead teacher. They will also help with recess and lunch hour.

SummerFun will be accepting applications for 3 tiers of teens:

1. COUNSELORS IN TRAINING: Rising 9th graders, volunteer position, community-service hours

2. COUNSELORS: Rising 10th and above with no prior SummerFun experience: Choose either a stipend $175/week or community-service hours

3. LEAD COUNSELORS: Rising 11th and above with 1+ season SummerFun experience: $13.50/hour

SummerFun runs for 6 weeks, July 6-August 13 from 9:00 am-4:00 pm, Monday-Friday at Ottoson. You can apply to work 1-6 weeks but most counselors are assigned 1-3 weeks maximum. Counselors must work the full-day of each week they are assigned, there are no half-day positions.


PLEASE NOTE: ACE plans to hire fewer teens than usual this summer to keep classroom numbers to a minimum. We will notify you via email if we'd like to invite you for an interview. Accepted applicants must attend a mandatory zoom training session in June.

NO PARENT INQUIRIES PLEASE. Students are encouraged to email Community Ed office in person if they have questions.
