Ellie's Experience...

"Drama Counsellor/Theatre Director has to be one of the best jobs on camp! It's hugely popular among the campers as we usually get around 50 kids auditioning for the 2 shows we do during the summer. I run between 3-5 manic rehearsals a day to put on a musical in just under 3 weeks! The rest of my time is spent gathering props, choreographing routines, painting set and everything else that goes into putting on a show. I also get a few free periods a day to join the kids in my bunk in their other activities like going on the zip line or tie dying our camp shirts in the art barn! Its been 3 years now and I cant imagine ever spending my summer doing anything else!"
