Have you attended a previous session of Rock Camp, are 16-18 years old and are interested in mentoring at camp? Consider applying to be an Intern!
Intern positions are available for previous campers who are interested in assisting with the program, and will have the chance to mentor younger campers, help teach instrument classes, develop leadership skills and shadow GR!C staff and mentors, as well as running sound and stage-managing the showcase. Interns are expected to model leadership behaviour by assisting adults in varying capacities, helping campers stay focused on the varying activities and helping move, troubleshoot and set-up gear each day.
Being a GR!C Intern is about being a positive role model for younger campers, learning how camp operates behind the scenes and requires a strong desire to learn how all of our gear works and needs to be set-up.
If you are looking to have a week where you work on creative self expression, learn a new instrument or how to play music with others then we do encourage you to be a camper instead.
Intern applications will open on Monday 19 July. In the meantime, if you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on facebook or instagram.
To be an intern you must:
- Have attended GR!C’s Rock Camp before
- Be 16-18 years old at the time of camp 20-25 September 2021.
- Feel confident playing at least one instrument
During the week, interns might:
- Assist with camper sign in and sign out
- Assist Instrument instructors to teach instrument classes
- Help move gear, set up and back down rooms and troubleshoot gear (be our roadies!)
- Assist with setting up and packing down workshops
- Make room signs and posters
- Assist with sound for lunchtime performances, showcase rehearsal and Saturday showcase
- Help stage-manage the showcase on Saturday
Time commitment: Orientation is 1-4pm Sunday 19 September. Camp runs 9am-3pm Monday 20 to Friday 24 September. If you are unable to commit to the full week, please let us know what mornings (8.30am – 12.00pm) and afternoons (1.00pm – 3pm) suit you. Showcase is 12-3pm Saturday 25 September.
Interns will be paid a small honorarium for their time and energy.
This year we have places for 5 interns. Due to changing COVID-19 restrictions we will prioritise applications from residents of the ACT and surrounding regions (ie. Braidwood, Yass, Goulburn). If you aren’t successful with your application we will have other opportunities for you to help out throughout the year at fundraisers and events – let us know if you’re interested!
Camper + intern applications open: Monday 19th July
