what is summer camp?
Heading to summer camp is a long-standing tradition for Canadian kids, and camp staff are hired to instruct and look after the campers throughout the summer.
Camp is the perfect place for young travellers to spend a summer - they'll adopt new responsibilities, develop their skills, and grow their confidence in a unique environment.
Summer camp is fun, but your young person will gain way more than positive memories. They will adopt a well-rounded outlook on the world, and return more confident, resilient & responsible.
benefits of working at summer camp:
Working at summer camp will build a CV & boost employability.
A job at summer camp develops independence, drive and responsibility. These valuable traits are easily recognised around the world by employers.
A job at summer camp can be hard work. To ensure a successful summer, staff will learn to develop grit and determination as character traits.
Camp staff are responsible for adhering to the camp schedule throughout the summer & are held accountable for upholding their camp role while remaining professional.
If we wouldn't send our own kids there, we wouldn't send yours, either. We carefully select our camps to ensure our participants receive a high-quality experience.
When hand-picking our camps, we make sure that they are fully accredited, and place a high importance on creating a safe environment for campers and staff.
Summer camps hire staff from across the globe. This exposes international staff to new cultures, allowing them to build a network of relationships with people all over the world.
Most staff go to work at camp by themselves, enabling them to form genuine friendships as they embark on a shared unique travel experience.
After camp, they have the option to extend their status in Canada as a visitor. It's a super-easy online process & once completed, they're able to explore Canada for up to 6 months.
Camp staff are paid for their time at camp, so afterwards they can experience Canada without having to save tonnes of money beforehand.
