The Best Summer Of Your Life! Camp Counselors Canada is an exciting exchange program, giving you the opportunity to experience the best of Canadian culture while gaining valuable work experience. Summer camp placements last 8-10 weeks during the summer (JuneAugust). Camp Counselors Canada is a fantastic opportunity for an amazing summer experience. You will form close friendships and live in a beautiful setting in one of the most unspoiled parts of the world. You’ll be able to choose between two great program options, with the possibility to continue working before and/or after camp has finished.
Program Options 1. Camp Counselor As a Camp Counselor you are a role model, friend, instructor and hero to campers. Your responsibilities include overall supervision of campers, and ensuring their wellbeing and safety whilst they are enjoying the fun and rewarding experience summer camp is. You will be with your campers 24 hours a day, making sure they eat meals, attend day and evening activities and are getting to sleep at night. During the day you’ll fill the role of an Activity or All-Round/General Counselor, depending on your skill level, ability, experience and certification. In either role you’ll lead or assist campers of all ages in one or more activities. Most counselors will live in a cabin or platform tent with a co-counselor and 8 – 12 campers of similar age. You’ll be expected to work a minimum of eight weeks and during this time at least six full days off from work and a few hours of free time every evening will be given.
