Why should I teach pottery and ceramics at camp?

There are lots of pottery jobs available with Camp Leaders, so if you're looking to explore your interest in art, but don't have much experience, Camp Leaders is a great way to do something new from June to August.

Pottery centre jobs are a great way to discover a new passion - and being willing to try new things will go a long way at camp. If you need to brush up on your pottery skills, or want to try out pottery at camp, consider taking a pottery class before the summer!

What does a pottery and ceramics instructor do?

Pottery teacher jobs at camp will see you getting your hands in the clay, showing the campers how to mold a piece of art. A pottery project will usually take 2 sessions - the first to mold the wet clay and let it dry, and the second to glaze and paint the final creation.

You’ll be giving campers the chance to cherish their memories at camp through a physical object that they can take home - you just can't beat the gratification of working a pottery job at camp.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I apply for pottery jobs at summer camp?

When starting your application you’ll be asked to select your top skills. Choose up to 10, and include pottery and ceramics. It's a good idea to go into detail about what you’ll bring to the role - for example, your skill level or experience. A camp director will then be able to assess if you’re a good fit, and invite you to their camp.

How many children will I be teaching?

Campers come down to sessions in age group divisions. These divisions can vary in skill level, but are usually made up of 10-30 campers. You’ll then be paired with an individual camper or a group, and don’t worry - you’ll be supported by your fellow specialists and counsellors.

How can I make my pottery and ceramics application stronger?

The more experience working with children you can gain before the summer, the better your application. Look to schools and local pottery and ceramics classes or clubs to volunteer with, so you can build up your own skills for on and off the page.

Why should I be an activity specialist instead of a general camp counsellor?

Being an activity specialist helps you develop your skills in an activity you're passionate about. You’ll be teaching 5 or 6 periods a day, and you’ll generally have more time off, with many specialists staying in a cabin with other counsellors rather than campers. You’ll also get to know the whole camp as they rotate through your activity.
