Placement: May until Sept 1, 2023
Wage: $135.00 – 140.00/day (Commensurate with certifications and experience). No charge for Room and Board.

Nature and Scope:
Team Leaders (TLs) are leaders and role models in the camp community, and support our front-line program staff, in the delivery of quality outdoor education and summer camp programs.

Team Leaders will be required to live on-site during our program season in rustic, shared accommodation, and may be required to provide care for children 24hrs/day.
