Community Leaders (Formerly Section Heads)
Moorelands Camp…. because every kid deserves a childhood.
Tucked away on 45 acres of sandy beaches and dense forests, accessible only by boat is Moorelands Camp. Each summer we serve over 600 economically disadvantaged children and youth from Toronto. It is our desire to see each child enjoy nature, gain social skills and experience personal growth; we do that through our intentional programs.
Working at Moorelands is demanding, challenging and rewarding! Our staff are positive, enthusiastic team players who put the needs of others before their own. They are ready for the challenge of being a strong influence, a consistent role model, and mentor to the youth that come to Moorelands. Staff are 18 years of age or older.
Camp sessions are week long; staff enjoys 1 +½ days off in-between sessions, transportation to Toronto is provided for days off. As we are an overnight camp, staff are expected to stay onsite (room and board provided) throughout the week.
Community Leaders (Bronze Cross or NLS preferred but not required) – Community Leaders (commonly referred to as Section Heads) are responsible for supervising the cabin leaders in their respective ends and providing support and guidance as necessary. Community Leaders are also responsible for planning and implementing training for staff, organizing section programming, overseeing paperwork, and assisting in the operations of camp. This is a great opportunity to gain supervisory experience, confidence in leading a team, and learn and apply advanced behaviour and crisis intervention skills when working with children and youth.
