Job description:

Make a positive impact on the lives of children this summer!   This is a fun and rewarding job for any individual who enjoys being around children and helping guide their social development.  Counselors work with small groups of children ages 3.5 to 11. Counselors lead and assist groups at fun athletic and creative arts activities throughout the day, including swimming.   Strong communication skills, energy, patience and stamina are all critical for success in this highly rewarding position.  Experience working with children in a group setting is a plus. College students and graduate students preferred!  Camp runs Mon thru Fri from 8:00am to 6:00pm. 

Our Philosophy :

  • The camp environment is relaxed, stimulating, fun and nurturing; our staff must have that perspective and vision.
  • All staff must be dedicated to making every day a memorable experience for campers. Being able to have fun oneself is greatly encouraged, as it enhances the young campers’ experience.
  • Our staff must be comfortable with on-going peer collaboration.
  • All camp activities are conducted in French and our priority is to find Counselors comfortable with French . The use of English is kept to a minimum.
  • Activities for campers include water games, swimming, arts & crafts, field trips, sports, drama and group games.
  • Each week is built around a different theme; staff is expected to plan all activities around that theme. Our staff is not employed in the role of babysitter for campers. Staff must actively participate in the planning and performing of all activities. Creativity is certainly welcome!!!!
