Most Leadership Positions and some Staff Team Positions are hired for four months. During May and June, staff will be teaching and facilitating our Outdoor Education Program for schools, Girl Guides, Scouts, and independent rentals. During these two months, the Leadership Team will also have time to plan their summer programs. Staff that join us in May form the core of our staff in July and August. Positions that are not listed under the Leadership Team, such as Cabin Leaders, Out-Trip Leaders, A-Team Members, or Wranglers, may also be hired for four months and primarily facilitate on our Outdoor Education Programs in May and June.

All Staff are required to be ready and willing to share the Gospel while working at camp. All positions are expected to help in creating the best week for each one of our guests (campers). Regardless of working on maintenance, the barn, in a cabin, or in the kitchen – ever position revolves around creating the best camp experience for our guests (campers) and sharing Jesus with each and every one of them.

In the same way that each person would want their beliefs respected, we would ask the same. We never want to put our young staff in a position where they would have to teach something that they do not believe. We want to create a safe environment for all staff to work in. Understanding that, any position that is listed as a "teaching position" must be filled by a staff person who is in full agreement with our Statement of Faith.

A couple technical points before we get the skinny on our jobs, in addition to your application to working here, we will require:

1. A Criminal Record Check (CRC) PLUS a Vulnerability Sector Search (VSS) from your local RCMP or city police. They'll do your CRC and VSS at the same time – make sure you get both from them. This may cost you money - if you're volunteering (not getting paid) during the summer please contact us and we will send you a cover letter that will get you the check for free/almost free.

2. Child Intervention Check. This is done at your local Child and Family Services office NOT the police station. It's a completely separate check done through the provincial government. To find an office closest to you follow this link: http://www.child.alberta.ca/home/local_offices.cfm and select your area on the left-hand bar to find the nearest office.

3. Standard First Aid. All of our staff need to have Standard First Aid with Level C CPR to work here.
