Spring & Summer Staff
You can tell a lot about an organization by what they value. Our values shape how we operate, how we interact with partners and families, and how we develop our programs. We value faith, family, excellence, leadership, and generosity. We believe that no one team member is more important than another. This defines how we work, grow, and serve. Our seasonal staff (spring and summer) ensure that all our programs our enjoyable, exciting, and excellent.
We desire to hire staff who have the ability to engage and interact with children and their parents; who are confident, dedicated, fun, enthusiastic, and responsible; and who align with our mission and values. If this sounds like you, we would love for you to join our team.
Our summer camps are a great place to give back to your community; learn how to be a leader; serve families; and of course, have a summer of fun, making new friends and new memories.
Applications for spring and summer employment open on December 1, 2023.
All staff must be at least 15 years of age by June 24, 2024.
For the spring and summer we hire Camp Directors and Camp Supervisors (16 weeks). For the summer we hire the following positions: Assistant Director, and Camp Counsellors (8 weeks).
Each Contract may vary. Typically, spring positions start in late April and end the last week of June; and summer positions start the last week of June and end the last week of August.
We know the summer is busy for many; and we do not want you to miss out on enjoying a vacation with your family. We do our best to honour vacation requests.
