Are you looking for a fun and rewarding summer job? We are seeking mature, committed and self-motivated individuals to fill the position of Camp Counsellor in our Summer Literacy Camp program. These literacy camps aim to promote a love of reading and learning, and increased self-confidence, among campers aged 5-12 living in Nunavik, Nunavut and Nunatsiavut and Eeyou Istchee.

Camp Counsellors are expected to work in independent teams to deliver indoor and outdoor literacy-based activities in a safe and culturally sensitive environment. Camp Counsellors will be working with large groups of very young children, up to a counsellor-to-child ratio of 1:10.

Camp teams are made up of both counsellors from the community and external counsellors. External camp counsellors must be comfortable with sharing accommodation (which may be co-ed) and have minimal access to telephone and internet.  

Overall Accountability
Each team will be comprised of an Admin Counsellor and 2-4 other Camp Counsellors. Together, they will work as a team under the remote supervision of the United for Literacy Regional Coordinator.

United for Literacy will provide candidates with a fully-paid training prior to the start of camp.
