Art Camp Teacher (Gr 1-6) -- Aug 30 - Sept 3, 2021

Description:

During the summer camp season, the Arlington Center for the Arts offers a variety of fun, creative art camps for children in Grades 1-10. Our camps value imagination, artistic exploration and self-expression.

During the 2021 camp season, our in-person camp programs are scheduled to run Monday – Friday, from 8:45am - 4:45pm. Teachers will be contracted to work 8:15am - 4:45pm each day, with paid prep time and two unpaid half hour breaks each day. We are currently seeking camp teachers for our Summer 2021 season and will be running camp for the following weeks: 

  • Week 10: 8/30 – 9/3 (find this week's program listing here)

Camp teachers will work with an assigned counselor and group of 6-8 campers (grouped by age) over the course of the week. They will design multi-disciplinary activities (based on the weekly theme), including visual art projects and group games, that they can lead with their campers each day. Though camp teachers will work with their counselor and group in an assigned classroom space, there will be time for outdoor play each day (weather permitting).

Teachers are responsible for lesson planning, requesting supplies in a timely manner, classroom management, and facilitating a creative space that is welcoming and supportive of all children.

All camp programs will comply with required EEC guidelines and local health & safety policies/procedures in light of COVID-19. For more info, please visit our website (https://www.acarts.org/camp-policies) or contact ACA's Education & Programs Manager, Cat Beaudoin, at cat@acarts.org.
