Wizards & Warriors™ and NERF Zombie Summer Camps are an adventure to remember. At our Summer Camps, children and teens have the opportunity to experience their imagination coming to life in an exciting educational environment.
Wizards & Warriors™ and NERF Zombie camps involve an ongoing story line filled with mystery, monsters an treasure. Adventurers dress in costume, learn safe sword skills with our special foam swords, and then enter a realm where the plot unfolds. How they proceed depends upon their own decisions and actions as well as the lessons they learn. As they progress, they earn Skill Tokens which they can spend on special powers or skills. And each week, the adventure picks up where it left off. . . so the adventure is fresh and exciting each time. The camp is for kids ages 6 and up located on nearly 300 acres of woodland with its own lake in Westford MA.
Wanted: Summer Camp Teacher Counselors
Are you / Do you:
Love working with kids?
Have a fascination with the fantasy genre?
Have a very active imagination?
A responsible and good role model?
Don't mind being hit with foam weapons?
Like to dress in costume and wear cool makeup?
Consider safety BEFORE anything else -- no matter how fun?
If you responded "yes" to each of the above, then you should consider applying to staff at our camp!
Our camp teacher counselors receive one of the highest pay rates in the camp industry. We provide training, costumes (although you can bring your own!), props, make up, and foam weapons.
In return, our expectations are high. We require you to be responsible, flexible, and reliable.
We hire creative teachers and M. Ed students because they understand the educational value of stories. Science, history, language, literature, mythology, physics and math teachers are given the challenge of integrating lessons for their specialty into the story and action at our camp.
Here are just a few examples:
Instructing our young warriors the physics of sword fighting
Teaching our wizards the science of chemistry in Potion Making
Explain the history of various cultures and folklore (which may happen to show up at camp)
Guide our "Woodland Protector" campers through wilderness biology and environmental conservation walks
The possibilities are endless. We believe in the power of stories to teach in way that kids will remember for a life time. You can be a part of those memories.
Please note that this is an exhausting, demanding job that requires both physical and mental endurance. Battles and mysteries take energy! But you will have the time of your life and we can guarantee that you will never be bored!
All camp staff are required to have previous experience working with kids and teens. Acting experience is not necessary, but does help. We're interested in mature decision makers -- counselors and teachers who like to take part in a creative, educational, improvisational environment -- but always with safety foremost in their mind. You must be exceptionally reliable and a good communicator. Punctuality is necessary as the nature of these activities requires precision timing. Professionalism is mandatory.
Wizards & Warriors Camp is owned and run by parents and teachers. Our own children attend these camps. Safety is our highest concern. We expect that it will be yours as well.
References required. Must be available: June 23 – August 11.
