Share your love of art by volunteering as a junior counselor for the Hunter Museum! Junior counselors help support elementary aged campers as they create, play, and explore during our weeklong summer art camps. It is a great opportunity to help young minds express their creativity, while earning community service hours.

  • Assist camp instructors as needed 
  • Help prep and facilitate daily art activities 
  • Lead campers through the art galleries and sculpture garden 
  • Help campers explore a wide variety of art mediums and tools 
  • Maintain a safe environment by keeping classroom clean and organized 
  • Assist and lead outdoor activities 


  • Must be 13-17 at the time of application 
  • Comfortable working with children 
  • Available to volunteer during one full week of camp. Teens have the option of exclusively working the morning or afternoon sessions of camp. 

Applicants will be interviewed virtually by museum staff before the start of camp.
