Summer Camp Instructor


The Summer Camp Instructor develops and teaches BAM Summer Camps. The goal of BAM’s camp programs is to actively engage youth in the exploration of art, craft, and design in a fun camp environment. This position works closely with the Director of Learning & Public Programming and the Summer Camp Assistants to plan all aspects of BAM Summer Camps, including logistics, curriculum, classroom management, art projects, and other camp activities and games. All camp projects and art activities should relate to BAM’s mission and exhibitions as much as possible, and should include gallery explorations throughout the Museum. The themes (listed below) have been chosen as they have been popular in the past, but there is no set curriculum or prescribed projects. The Instructor will have the freedom to create their own plan, projects, and daily schedule. The Instructor is responsible for leading Summer Camp programs by engaging kids in fun, new, and challenging art projects and other activities throughout the week. They must be able to communicate consistently and effectively with parents about camp activities and any behavioral issues that arise, including the creation of a daily newsletter for parents.
