Volunteer Prep Course

All volunteers must complete our compulsory Volunteer Prep Course.

Placement Guaranteed!

A one-week volunteer placement at Camps Canada is guaranteed for all who complete the 12-hour accreditiation course. You are only guaranteed one week of placement. However, after this probation week, you may be asked to join us for additional weeks based on your performance and the total number of volunteers.

As per school board policy, please be sure to get your volunteer hours PRE-APPROVED (in writing) by your school principal before completing your volunteer hours.

Description

All volunteers must be 13 (or completing grade 8), 14, or 15 years old before their summer camp volunteer placement. More than just preparing you for your volunteer experience with Camps Canada, we'll prepare you for paid employment anywhere. Think of this course as Job Prep 101.

What you'll learn:

preparing a resume, applying to jobs, interview skills, understanding your personality, working with kids, teaching sport progressions, basic first aid (no certificate provided), leadership skills, camp administration skills, and much more.

Certification

An official Camps Canada Certificate of Completion will be provided to all volunteers who complete our 12-hour Volunteer Prep Course. A camp uniform including a Camps Canada tee shirt, shorts, and name tag will be provided.
