Work at Camp
At Adventure Camp you will find more than just a job, but an experience that will last a lifetime. Working with campers, teaching skills, putting on skits or leading campfire songs, you will create a lifetime of memories and skills. Where, other than camp, might you learn how to shoot a bow and arrow, or take a camper out in a canoe for the first time?
We are looking for mature individuals to join our team for a number of different roles. All positions at camp are paid competitively. If you are ready to take part in the most amazing, challenging and rewarding summer of your life, apply to join our team below.
