A rewarding experience with incredible management and staff.
COUNSELLOR, LIFEGUARD (Former Employee) – Fallis, AB – 16 December 2017
A Typical day at work is 7:30am to 10:30pm at the summer camp. The hours are long, but it doesn't even feel like you're working. From start to finish you spend your day with children, and creating a magical experience at camp for them. You will run activities for the kids like zip-lining, stand up paddle boarding, canoeing, fire building, and many more. For adults its like being a kid again getting to do all these things, but also watching the kids have the time of their lives doing them is the best part. So the long hours aren't so long. You would work Sunday nights to Friday afternoons, where you would get scheduled breaks and time to yourself. The Management team is by far the most supportive and friendly team you could ask for. They will treat you like family, and make you want to push, to be the best version of yourself. The hardest part of the job will change for every person. Whether it's the long days, or always having to be in a positive mood, even during the rainy days. Or maybe it's the homesick kid that won't go to sleep, or a child who has trouble behaving. Regardless, the management team will help you to solve the problem. I've learnt a lot working there, its a once in a life time experience and everyones journey is different, I would recommend working there for self exploration, finding your strengths and weaknesses, and finding out what you are capable of.
