Audubon Arts Summer Positions

Audubon Arts is NMS's beloved summer program for children in grades K-12! Children participate in age-based groups, accompanied by warm and supportive counselors who work with the children throughout the day. Enjoying activities designed to encourage self-expression and creativity, each group has drama, dance, music, art, movement, and outside time every day. Under the guidance of our experienced artistic staff, their work culminates in performances of one-of-a-kind musical theatre shows!

Audubon Arts Counselor

Counselors have the responsibility to create an inclusive, welcoming, and supportive community in which each program participant is treated respectfully and appreciated as an individual. Counselors should be consistent, loving, and responsible caregivers who work as a team to provide a safe and fun environment. Counselors lead their group in Creative Intensive activities each day, and participate in all aspects of show creation, modeling and encouraging collaboration. Attention to detail and involvement in all activities is essential to the success of the program. Counselors are the threads that bind together the various daily activities into cohesive musical theater productions at the end of weeks three and six.

Counselors must be available for the entire program: June 24–August 2, 2024; and for orientation week beginning June 17, 2024. Applicants must be 18 by the first day of work.
