Camp Taconic is home to approximately 500 campers ages 7 to 15 and close to 300 staff. We are located in the beautiful Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Our staff comes from all over the United States as well as Canada and abroad. Our community thrives on the diverse backgrounds and cultures, which our counselors bring. We are all bound by one common thread: our passion to work with children.
At Taconic, we have a full program of activities. One of our premier program groups is Performing Arts! Our performing arts counselors have the opportunity to direct shows and musicals with our amazing “Playhouse” team. Performing arts counselors also help teach and mentor our campers within the performing arts. During a summer at camp, counselors gain invaluable experience directing, teaching, mentoring, working with children and more!
This is the perfect opportunity for college students looking for a summer job and internship. We provide room and board for the summer, a competitive salary, travel reimbursement, internship credit and it is an overall wonderful experience!
“Working at the theater is an incredible experience! Through directing shows at Camp, I was able to use my own creative talents and share them with up-and-coming artists. For me, the very best is when you see the campers grow and become more confident in themselves.” – Lindsey Bradford (Kennesaw State University)
