The job of GROUP LEADER is to supervise a floor of campers with the assistance of 6-10 counselors assigned to that residence area. The team of 5 GLs are the right arm of the Camp Director in running the camp side of our summer theatre program. The GLs coordinate & supervise recreation activities, conduct room inspections, oversee attendance at classes, supervise & evaluate the performance of the counselors.
You will need to be flexible &understanding as you will have to cope & handle many varied problems. Counselors may come to you with problems as simple as a schedule issue or it may be a personal problem like homesickness. With campers the GL will play the heavy & the counselors will play the friend. With the counselors, Camp Director plays the heavy and the GL plays the friend. Listen to the people around you. Join in with what they are doing instead of always being the one telling them what to do. Let them know when they do good stuff, not just when they need to be corrected. You have to remember to laugh!
This is a fun job! You are going to meet exciting people from other countries and you are going to see more theater then perhaps you have seen in your whole life. Working with kids, making new friends and watching the magic unfold around you. What a great way to spend the summer!
