Being a member of our Summer Camp Staff is both exciting and, at times, exhausting. There are a wide variety of experiences during the camping season.  We work with youth from ages 6 to 17. We enhance our skills of leaderships, team work, organization and time management.  We have the opportunity to share the best of ourselves as we provide a safe, inclusive and fun summer camp.

Even though we run four weeks of camp during the summer, we are able to offer seven weeks of work for staff.  This is made possible through our partnership with Hardisty Lake United Church Camp.
