Are you looking for a fun and rewarding summer job? Each year, United for Literacy coordinates educational and engaging Summer Literacy Camps across Inuit Nunangat. 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. 

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 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 having 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.
