Incredibly positive and encouraging work environment.
Leaders In Training Program Head (Former Employee) –  Bracebridge, ON6 May 2019
Seeing children develop and open up is the greatest enjoyment from working at a summer. I was able to experience this every week leading the LIT program. The campers came out of the their bi-weekly session more open-minded and untethered to the potential social restrictions they experience in their usual environments.

Rewarding and extremely fun place to work
Camp Leader (Former Employee) –  Muskoka, ON20 September 2018
Amazing atmosphere, all your coworkers genuinely care about each others well being as well as delivering an amazing experience for the kids we look after. By far the best bosses I've ever had, they were fair, kind, would compromise, and made it their job for you to have as much fun as the children. I learned valuable leadership qualities (from the leadership program I worked in), as well as basic survival skills, and great people skills with people ages 8-60+. They provided opportunities to show your skills, responsibility, and innovate within the work environment. 10/10 I would recommend anyone who works with the public should have at least one experience here.
Pros
Free food, amazing environment, beautiful landscape, lifelong friends and memories
Cons
24 hours a day 6 days a week, can be emotionally taxing, early mornings

Great Experience!!
Camp Counsellor (Former Employee) –  Muskoka, ON11 July 2018
Most amazing experience I've ever had. Would recommend! I was responsible (with other counsellors) for a cabin with approximately 20 kids. I learned to instruct children and developed skills such as solving conflict and building friendships between the campers of my cabin and around camp. I assisted in running programs, meals and organizing evening activities.
Pros
super fun, freedom
Cons
pay

You get many hours
dishwashing, food prep (Former Employee) –  Bracebridge, ON9 April 2018
You tend to get too many hours and can be quite stressful due to the constant changing of rules and policies. You do anything for the customer no matter how many rules it goes against.

Fun but workers always come last
Outdoor Educator (Former Employee) –  Muskoka, ON2 October 2017
Would not recommend working here under paid, only thing it’s good for is a good resume, uppers treat you poorly, extra work only gives you Walmart cards, no extra pay, and no freedoms.
Pros
All accommodations taken care of
Cons
Long hours, one day off a week, foods gross, no freedoms, can’t leave site

Pros

Cons
long hours, if you don't like kids, not for you

Amazing Summer Job
Cabin Counsellor (Former Employee) –  Bracebridge, ON28 February 2013
This place for the most part is awesome place to work. Where else can a teenager or young adult work, and willing wake at the crack of dawn (often 6:00 am) and want to work? I like to think of Camp Muskoka as a paid summer vacation, with slight bit more responsibility. Highlights of my summer with them include: Flying down a zipline, singing awful Brittany Spears karaoke with a co-worker, Sock Wrestling and leading caveman training. Now back to the serious part, The job is easy, provided you can keep a watchful eye on the kids, and refrain from intoxication during the 8 weeks of camp. The hardest part of the camp is between the occasional poorly behaved camper (some do have "issues", and not the ones solved with tissues) , and leaving the friends you'll make at end of the summer. Biggest and only major issue is the amount of time it take to be paid. I left in august and received my final corrective check in January. Also pay is hard to judge as room/board, meals, and full laundry service (wash and fold) is included.

Camp Muskoka's Motto rung true: "Where the fun never ends"
Pros
room/board/meals, wash n' fold service, staff recreation nights, sock wrestling, amazing co-workers, interesting chacter's, training week, different fields of interest
Cons
long hours, some difficult children, took way to long to be paid
