During the fall, our clients consist mainly of school groups, as well as youth groups, Girl Guide, and Scout groups. Currently, Camp Warwa is looking for outgoing, self-motivated, and professionally minded individuals 18 years and older to work as Outdoor Education Instructors. Outdoor Education Instructors also help to maintain the site with cooking, cleaning and maintenance.
If you are passionate about helping make a difference in the life of a child as well as to grow as an outdoor professional, this role would be a great fit. We are known for our experience, diverse programs, and our inspiring professional community. We are looking for people who appreciate children, are passionate about nature and want to live and work in a community environment.
Outdoor Education Instructors will be responsible for attending camp-provided training to learn how to facilitate a wide range of camp programs that include: archery, fire building, climbing wall, group challenge, orienteering, and more.
In the fall season, Outdoor Education Instructors teach our programs and do not provide overnight supervision of campers. Outdoor Education Instructors will work a combination of full and half days resulting in a total of 5 days on and 2 days off each week.
