Do you have a love for the arts and working with children? Now in its 19th year, children ages 4.5-17 come to ASAP! Summer Camp to play, make friends, explore their creativity, connect with nature, become inventors and discover something new! Voted #1 Cultural Arts Organization in Northwest Connecticut, ASAP! Summer Camp is a full-day camp like no other in the area. We offer a comprehensive arts experience led by professional artists. Daily adventures include visual arts, dance, drama, music, creative writing, circus arts, yoga, pottery, outdoor activities and so much more. At ASAP! Summer Camp, kids unplug so they can connect with themselves and each other.

Summer Camp Assistants are assigned to an age group and are responsible for leading that age group through their day. Assistants attend beginning and end of the day meetings with the director of the camp and the teaching artists.

Assistants are also responsible for cleaning up the facilities at the end of the day. This job can be physically and emotionally demanding.

ASAP! Summer Camp is held at the Washington Montessori School in Washington, CT. This year’s dates are July 27th-August 7th, 2020. Assistants are expected to arrive at 8 am and leave at 4:30 pm, sometimes later especially on the last day of camp.
