Position: Camp Counsellor/Lifeguard
Type: summer job / summer student position
Organization: Environmental Education Commission
Location: near St. John's, Newfoundland (with meals, accom., transportation, see below)

Echo Pond Summer Camp/Environmental Education Commission is seeking two enthusiastic and responsible Camp Counsellors (one with lifeguard certification) for the 2017 season, from July 3rd - August 30th. As these will be student positions, applicants should be:
• Registered as full-time students for the preceding and next academic year
• Between the ages of 15-30 at the start of employment
• Must be Canadian Citizens and legally entitled to work in Canada.

Echo Pond is a nature camp, taking place about 1 hour 15 minutes from St. John’s in the Avalon Peninsula's beautiful 'Fog Forest' at the Brother Brennan Environmental Education Centre. Camp Counsellors will be part of a dynamic team, focused on providing positive outdoor experiences for a diverse group of children and teens, age 7-15. Camps range from 3-5 days and are overnight. The Echo Pond program is designed using principles of Experiential and Earth Education.

The ideal candidate:
• Enjoys working with kids
• Has an interest and knowledge in ecology, sustainability and the environment (university or college courses in a related field would be an asset)
• Is reasonably fit and enjoys spending time outdoors (experience and training in canoeing, outdoor skills, and gardening would all be assets)
• Has an interest and willingness to do simple acting/theatre
• Works well in a team environment
• Is adaptable, motivated and caring
• Must complete First Aid and CPR certification before the start of camp
• 1 of these 2 positions will also require lifeguard certification

Other camp counsellor skills that would be beneficial for these positions, include an ability to: play a musical instrument or lead campfire songs; teach yoga and meditation; and lead arts and crafts sessions. If you have another skill that you think would be a great contribution to camp, please let us know on your cover letter.

We will provide:
• Paid training
• Transportation to and from St. John's
• Meals and accommodation, during time at camp

Camp Counsellors will get paid for 275-285 hours over the course of the summer. Wage will be dependent on funding, but will range between $11 and $13 per hour.

Resumes and Cover letters should be emailed to: 
echopondjobs at gmail.com

They should be received no later than Friday, February 27th, 2017.
