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.

We are looking for Cabin Leaders who are committed Christians, 17-25 years of age, love having fun and want to share their faith with others. You need to be energetic, have a passion for the outdoors and a burden for the kids, youth and young adults from the inner city. Responsibilities include leading a cabin of 3-5 youth together with a Jr. Counselor as well as participating in camp program activities, games and skits. This position runs through July and August.
