About the Discovery Performing Arts Camps at Flato Markham Theatre
The Discovery Performing Arts Camps, offered for more than 20 years in Markham, is a high-demand, inclusive program designed to engage youth as they develop life skills such as team work, confidence and self-expression through the performing arts. There are currently 7 different programs running in three locations (including the Flato Markham Theatre). These programs include; Kinder Camp (ages 4-5), Junior Stars (ages 6-7), Rising Stars (8-9) Drama Camp (ages 10-11), Actor’s Workshop (ages 12-16), as well as an off-site Performing Arts Camps on Tour (ages 6-8) and (9-13). In 2019, more than 1,100 children were engaged through our camp programs with a waitlist of over 250.
We are looking for a Musical Director who is talented, organized and adaptable to manage all the musical elements of the theatre’s Discovery Performing Arts March Break Camps at the Flato Markham Theatre.

Through strategic programming choices, the MD will enable children and/or youth to develop skills, make friends, socialize and build self-esteem. In addition, as the MD, will be accountable for day-to-day musical requirements for all camp programming, operations while ensuring camp activities are safe, inclusive and high quality.
