Leading a group of campers through winding trails and never ending adventures.

Working at Camp Vincent was one of the best experiences of my life. I was given the opportunity to collaborate with head staff and other counsellors and was encouraged to bring my own creativity to the work place. Even the though the living areas weren't ideal for staff and there wasn't and hourly pay, I would recommend working at camp to anyone wanting to gain experience with kids and the outdoors.

A mess with no morals.

One of my first jobs so being naturally inexperienced with people and the like, I wasn't always completely certain of myself. I had actually been terminated before probation had ended, and within those 5 months I had been pulled into the office and reprimanded for taking too long, for daring to step behind the cash registers to change the trash bins, consistently sent to do jobs I had no training for and was nowhere near my job description. To earn this job I actually used a third party to help train me to learn how interviews worked and that same third party had opted to pay for my training and increase my chances of becoming employed...once that payment program had run out however I was immediately terminated, with a full 15 minutes wasted on cheap empty excuses that even in my experience could easily be characterized as weak covers. I was essentially used for free pay and labor and once the money stopped they no loner needed me. Did I mention I had to deal with inappropriate advances from a customer? Yeah, and bringing that to managements attention, not only do they take no action, but attempting to work away from the mentioned individual only gets one once more taken to the office and spoken to.

Great entry level position, not much room for advancement

Amazing amazing staff. They will support you from your first day to your last. They are all amazing women to work with. Management at different homes need some help as they pick and choose favourites. They work on a seniority system so if you are not next for a full-time opportunity, you may need to move on. Some staff have been working there for 8-10 years before they even get a full-time position. Overall a great place to learn about the field and start your career.

Respectful environment

St. Vincent de Paul was a fun work experience for me, it is a safe work environment. It was fast paced and beneficial for me and my mother to be a great way to be a better person.
