Our summer volunteering program allows participants who have finished at least grade 9 to gain around 40 hours of volunteer work per week, while giving them an opportunity to develop their interpersonal and leadership skills. We are looking for top-notch volunteers who are responsible, enthusiastic, creative, and leaders. Volunteer positions fill up quickly, so make sure to register early!

Volunteer positions

Participants will be assigned with an instructor to help run activities for a younger group of campers and to assist in teaching a variety of projects. They will be expected to support the group instructor to the best of their ability throughout general and lab activities.

Administration Assistant

Participants assigned to the camp administration will get a better sense of what managing an organization entails. They will be expected to help with general administrative tasks, such as data entry, as well as to organize important activities, such as water games and scavenger hunts. *available on-campus only.

It is not possible to guarantee a position in advance. Roles will be determined on the first day of volunteering by the camp administration.
