Family Camp Float Counsellor

Positions Available: Approx. 2
Reports to: Program Facilitators
Contract Duration: June 25, 2022 – September 3, 2022
Contract Value: $6,120.00

This is an entry level or ‘second year’ position, meant for staff who have the skills and experience to run some programs independently, but might not yet be ready to be responsible for an entire area, (such as in the Program Area Head position), or may simply not want to  ‘specialize’ in one area. Family Camp Floaters will have the opportunity to run some programs on their own, covering for Area Heads in their
absence, but will also assist with second staffing programs where necessary. Although Family Camp Floaters will not be responsible for maintaining a specific area of camp, it is expected that through their skills and experience, they take ownership over the areas they are assigned, and act as mentors to the first year staff and All-Camp Counsellors.
