high school counselors

Acting as a Summer Arts Program High School Counselor is an immersive learning opportunity for any high school student looking to explore a career in education, music, or working with students, or just to enjoy a week of music making! Through a counselor position, you are able to form deep connections with students and other counselors and create memories that will last a lifetime. Summer programming can be an incredibly impactful aspect of a student's life, and we are looking for counselors who take that influence seriously.

Your on-site responsibilities throughout the program will vary. Overall, high school counselors are responsible for ensuring students are punctual and supervising during meals, recreation, and free time.

High School Counselors should plan to arrive 1 day before the start of their week for an in-depth training session on leadership, team building, group management, and more. There may be online training sessions prior to arrival on campus. In addition to training, you will have a chance to get to know your fellow counselors, and talk with SAP leadership about your goals for the week.

Week 1 (String & Choir Camp): June 17-22, 2023 or
Week 2 (Band & Music Theatre Camp): June 26-July 1, 2023



Students arrive early to campus to participate in a 2 day-long training session that includes a variety of sessions to prepare for being a counselor. These sessions will be in combination with the professional camp staff of the CAS String or Band Camp. 

The schedule for High School Counselors will be 8:00am-8:30pm. Students will return home each night, but all meals will be provided. Students will actively assist in ensemble rehearsals and sectionals.
