The Downriver Council for the Arts is seeking energetic and creative assistants for our summer art camp program. We present a well-rounded artistic experience that encompasses many different art forms, both visual and performance-based. You will be assisting instructors with their camps and monitoring lunchtime when we have children staying. You will be expected to pass a mandatory ICHAT background check.
Camps run from July 16 -August 17. Each camp runs for 5 days, Monday-Friday from 10am-1pm and 1:30pm-4pm each day. You must be available to assist for the entire camp week. We offer two age groups 6-10 and 11-15. We are considering offering a camp for 5 year olds if there is an interest.
This is an unpaid position; however, it can also equate to an internship with exchanged hours worked for university credit. We would be happy to make arrangements to accommodate this. This volunteer position or internship is focused on providing real-world training and an out-of-classroom educational experience to those interested in pursuing a career in education, childhood development, arts administration or any creative field.
The dates listed are when the summer camps are in session, but if an internship requires more time, we can add additional time in the form of non-profit preparation for camps (inventory, supplies, organization, sponsorships, reporting, etc.)
If you are interested in applying, please send an email cover letter with resume attached to email@example.com stating your interest and any specific fields you’d be interested in assisting. Please call 734-720-0671 if you have any questions.
