Camp Activity Instructor

Live, Work, and Play with Children in Algonquin Park This Summer!


Camp Arowhon is a traditional co-ed residential summer camp in the heart of Algonquin Park, Ontario. Our mission is to nurture and challenge children, both physically and emotionally. Our community of 350 campers is big enough to be diverse but still feels like a family. Our team of 150 staff means that the campers get a ton of individual attention, and you have a whole bunch of like-minded people to hang out with.


At Arowhon, you will receive professional training and expert support and supervision. You will grow yourself while you help children grow. You will leave feeling proud because you made campers feel proud of themselves. You will work hard and play hard, all in a beautiful wilderness setting.


Our in-camp activities are focused on teaching activity specific technical skills to both beginners and experts. Our goal is that our campers develop technical proficiency,  build self-confidence, and develop a sense of community through instruction.


We are currently seeking Head and Assistant Instructors in all 18 of our activity areas, including:  Flatwater and Whitewater Kayaking, Swimming, Sailing, Wind Surfing, Canoeing, and SUP (Stand Up Paddle-boarding) 


Start Date(s): ~June 12-18, 2024
