Temporary Camp-City Liaison

Gem Lake Wilderness Camp – Posted by Inner City Youth AliveWinnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

NOTE: This job listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Job Description

Gem Lake Wilderness Camp is set a world away from the pressures and conflicts of the inner city in the beautiful Nopiming Provincial Park, located 250 km North of Winnipeg (past Lac du Bonnet). After a 3 hour drive, our campers hike 2 km to the lake, where boats shuttle them 5 km to the camp in the summer. In winter, kids experience a 8 km snowmobile ride to reach camp. The camp program is specifically designed for the youth of the inner city, offering an adventure they have never experienced before. Our goals are that campers will enjoy a space where they can come quietly before God and where leaders can strengthen their faith and leadership skills. Our 1:1 camper to leader ratio offers many opportunities for youth and staff to build meaningful, mentoring relationships.

The Camp-City Liaison works primarily out of our city office and is a supportive role to our camp staff. The position runs July and August and responsibilities include shopping and packing up food and supplies for the Wilderness camp program, contacting/reminding campers of upcoming camp dates and driving campers to and from camp. A class 4 driver’s licence is required (we can help with that). Applicant needs to be a confident driver, organized, self-motivated and able to work independently but as part of a team.
