WHY WORK AT CAMP?
“Because of camp I get to surround myself with people, staff and campers alike, that inspire me every single day. These people have also allowed me to discover myself, and to grow into the best me I can be.”
“I feel like even though I was mature before camp I feel even more mature now. The way I look at people, respond to things, and deal with stress has changed and I think that’s because how I grew this summer!”
“Because of camp I am able to get in front of any crowd and feel relaxed. I have been able to grow in confidence, and can firmly say that I know what I want to do with the rest of my life.”
Camp will ask you to commit to the following dates. All training is paid.
A training day & site orientation on Saturday, May 7, 2022
A training weekend - Friday, May 27 at 7pm to Sunday, May 29 at 5pm
A training week - Sunday, July 10 at 7pm to Friday, July 15 at 5pm
We then run 6 weeks of camp from July 17, 2022 to August 26, 2022. You would live on site while you work at camp - from Sunday nights to Friday nights. Note that you do not have to work all 6 weeks of camp - it depends on the number of campers who sign up and your own availability.
Preference is given to people who can attend all training and work all 6 weeks of camp.
