If you are not ready to work with young children all day long, please consider applying for a support role.
Counselor Selection Process... While previously serving as a counselor for BeaTPAC is a major plus…it does not guarantee that you will be selected as a counselor this summer.
Attendance/Commitment/ITS & School Theatre Program Involvement/Previous Involvement with BeaTPAC/ Grade Level/Age
Application: Application effort/ Experience/ Skills/Application Returned on time
Skills: Acting/Singing/Dancing Skills
Attitude: Energy/ Excitement/ Respect/General Treatment of Others and Kindness/Organization/ Listening Skills/ Determination/ Dedication/Work Ethic/School Disciplinary Record and Classroom Behavior
Students will be asked to serve on staff before being considered for a counselor position. This may be waived at the discretion of the camp directors (for students beyond 9th grade). All students who fall into this group should still complete the new counselor application so that the directors may refer to them at any point prior to or during camp.
To be considered for a head counselor position, you must have served as a counselor for at least two summers and must currently be at least a senior in high school.
***Being great at performing and enjoying theatre is awesome…but there is a lot more that goes into being a counselor….our number one priority is our campers…and counselors are selected based on how we feel they will do with children and what type of personalities and skills we are in need of this summer.
You must be willing and able to participate in all kids of physical and creative activities.
