As per British Columbia Camping Association accreditation requirements, all staff and volunteers must be at least 17 years old by the time he or she begins working for Camp Douglas. Camp Douglas personnel will have growing faith in Jesus Christ, willingness to serve others, interest in the well-being of children and flexible, positive attitudes.
Generally, staff have at least a few weeks of volunteer experience at Camp Douglas before obtaining a full-time summer position, but qualified people new to Camp Douglas are always encouraged to apply for summer work with us. Some of our staff members must have special qualifications – see individual job descriptions for First Aid, Waterfront and Kitchen positions.
Staff and volunteers are encouraged to go home on weekends when camps are not in session. It is considered a privilege to stay at the camp at these times and special arrangements must be made with the Camp Director at the time job position contracts are signed. When camps are in session, staff & volunteers are expected to be on call at all times except during designated hours and nights off (as per job contract).
As you will see below, there are a wide variety of positions, each demanding different skills and offering different challenges. Which one is right for you? Application forms are available by clicking here.
WARNING! Actual positions will likely be both more challenging and more rewarding than you expect!
Staff and volunteer applications for summer 2018 are due February 1, 2020. Interviews will be held the following week.
