NEMC Counselor Application - DEADLINE extended to January 31st!
The New England Music Camp (NEMC) is seeking university students for counseling positions for the 2022 summer program. We are especially interested in applicants from traditionally underrepresented groups as we seek to serve our increasingly diverse and inclusive campus.
To be eligible for employment, candidates must have reached the age of nineteen and have completed at least one year of college prior to the opening of camp. The present salary range extends from $2000.00 to $2650.00 (contingent upon assignment). There is also a travel allowance that is paid at the close of camp. The 2022 camp season begins on June 26th. All counselors are required to arrive on June 19th for facilities preparation and orientation. BYSO (Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras) will once again offer a 12 day camp immediately following ours, through August 20th. An additional $1,000 stipend will be given to those hired to work BYSO.
Anyone applying MUST be willing to commit to the entire camp season (June 19th – August 20th). This includes the two week BYSO camp. We will need a minimum of 18-20 counselors to stay for the BYSO program. If you are unable to stay for BYSO, you can request an exception on the application, but we cannot guarantee that will be granted. You will be notified of that decision when you receive an acceptance letter of employment no later than early March. Applicants have a greater chance of being hired when they are able to commit for the entire camp season!
In order for NEMC to offer a variety of recreations, we are focused on hiring counselors that are certified in archery, sailing, and lifeguarding. Having those certifications increases your chances of being hired but doesn't guarantee you being hired. We are looking for people with certifications in all areas for the coming summer! Please note that open counseling positions may be extremely limited this summer, so the more thorough your application the better!
If counseling at NEMC appeals to your personal and/or professional goals, please complete the enclosed materials and submit them promptly. All applications should be received no later than January 31st, 2022. If questions arise, please call or write at your convenience.
