Arts and Crafts Instructor
Camp Walt Whitman’s art studio offers a wide variety of resources and activities for campers to engage in. The walls of our studio are blanketed in watercolor paintings, papier-mâché masks and silk-screened t-shirts. Those who work in our art studio create projects that challenge our campers’ creativity. Along with daily activity periods, our art instructors will have the opportunity to teach more extensive projects during our week-long SIG (Special Interest Group) periods and to offer assistance and supervision during elective periods. Our art studio staff also provides assistance with creating sets for our theater productions and other special events.
For instructor Jacqueline Griffith, teaching arts and crafts allows you “to be silly, creative, and have fun everyday — it’s like being a camper yourself.” She adds that “the best part of the job was being able to meet every kid in camp. Arts and crafts is a nice, relaxing place where the kids can do something calming and hang out with friends. You have an opportunity to build relationships with everyone and really get to talk and know the kids and other counselors pretty well.”
