Camp Assistants

The Pumphouse Theatre is now accepting applications for three (3) full-time Camp Assistant positions for our annual Summer Drama Day Camp.

Drama camp activities include the exploration of acting, improvisation, creative movement, voice, sound, storytelling, and playwriting. The goal of the program is to develop the social interaction and life skills of the young participants through the creative utilization of theatrical techniques. Students are facilitated in developing a production, which is performed for friends and family on the final day of camp. Pumphouse Theatre believes in drama education that encourages creativity, freedom, and a healthy sense of play in our youth.

The Camp Assistants will work under the guidance of the Program Coordinator and Drama Camp Instructors to assist in the overall execution of the curriculum.

Potential candidates must be available from 8:00 am – 5:30 pm Monday to Friday, and are required to work during final performances.

The successful applicants will:
❖ Possess the ability to supervise young people between the ages of 7 – 14 and have had previous experience in this area.
❖ Have an understanding of or be willing to learn the creative theatre process
❖ Display strong communication and interpersonal skills
❖ Be committed to the creative development and the theatrical education of the participants
❖ Some experience with the creative use and construction of props, costumes and sets is an asset.
❖ Know how to have fun!

Pumphouse Theatre is committed to building a culturally diverse environment and encourages applicants from all backgrounds and abilities to apply

The time commitment is approximately 40 hours per week, for nine weeks, beginning June 24 and continuing through to August 23, 2024 (Monday to Friday). Compensation will range from $15-$17 based on experience. For camp descriptions, please visit the Classes & Camps section of our website at
