Each summer Beaver Lake Camp (BLC) needs extra staff to help with summer camps for First Nations youth and children. The short-term summer staff help in many different capacities, and there are opportunities for families as well as single people. Below are some typical summer staff needs. Please note that not all these opportunities may be available.
- Counsellor - Each counsellor is directly responsible for each camper in his or her cabin. The counsellor will spend the most time interacting with each camper at meal times, chapel, crafts, recreation, and cabin time.
- Craft Teacher - The craft teachers prepare and lead craft activities for each of the cabin groups.
- Maintenance - The maintenance team maintain the grounds and facilities as well as assist the counsellors with recreation and other activities.
- Cook - It takes a lot of food to feed hungry campers. The cooks spend their time preparing meals as well as various cleaning and laundry duties.
- Nurse - The nurse attends to the medical needs of the campers and staff.
- Camp Pastor - The camp pastor is the spiritual leader of the campers. He communicates the love of God to each of the campers through chapel times, and one-on-one interactions.
- Discipleship Director - The primary responsibility for this man and woman team is the emotional and spiritual well being of the staff. They meet with each of the staff on a weekly basis for encouragement and mentoring.
The dates for this are the 4th weekend of June through 1st week of August.
