Work at Camp – in the Kitchen!

Work at Camp – in the Kitchen!

Are you ready to work hard, make lots of new friends, live away from home, and earn some money for school?

G.B. Catering has been operating successfully in recreational camps and outdoor centres since 1969. We provide food services at about fifteen locations across Ontario with most of our camps located in beautiful, picturesque Muskoka and we hire over 100 employees each summer. Our clients include sports camps, canoe tripping camps, camps for children with special needs (diabetic, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, etc.), religious camps, a family camp, as well as traditional children’ s camps. Feeding numbers at each camp range from 70 to 350 people per meal.

G.B.’s recipe for success is based on our unique philosophy of preparing high quality home-cooking and fresh-baked goods, including our trademark homemade breads.

These are summer positions only, starting mid/late June to the end of August/early September. Perfect for people who work in ski resorts, schools, and colleges/universities during the rest of the year…or people who just enjoy the outdoors and new experiences.

We work hard, play hard!
