At iCamp We Have Two Type of Camp Counsellor Positions:
A general counsellor lives with and is responsible for campers in one of our three youngest age groups (ages 8-16). During daily activity periods, the general counsellor travels to different destinations and participates in activities with the campers. They also have an opportunity, based on their personal skills, to assist in specialty areas, where he/she may be working with campers in other age groups. General counsellors should be experienced in working with younger children.
A specialty counsellor lives with campers in any of our age groups. During daily activity periods, they give instructions under the supervision of a specialty head in their area of expertise. They must be experienced not only in their activity area but must have the patience, motivation and desire to teach the campers.
*** Both General and Specialty Counsellors live in comfortable cabins (also called “bunks”) with the campers and are responsible first and foremost for the health, adjustment and happiness of the children in the bunk. All cabins have modern facilities with fully equipped bathrooms and electricity.
Key staff members are part of the leadership team at iCamp. We believe that it is essential for key staff members to exhibit exemplary maturity and high levels of responsibility to create a safe, productive, and fun summer for campers and staff alike. Individuals are chosen for key staff positions because we trust that they will be good role models for campers and staff members and that they will adhere to and enforce the rules that we have established to ensure that our Camp community will thrive.
A specialty head is an individual who directs a specific activity area. This individual is responsible for the development and execution of a specific activity program and curriculum.

The ideal candidate would be a mature, responsible person who is sensitive to the needs of the people for whom they are responsible for, able to adhere to and reinforce the rules of our community and has an objective approach to solving conflict situations that are common on camps.
