• Has an interest and willingness to do simple acting/theatre
• Works well in a team environment

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

Echo Pond Summer Camp is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for both campers and staff. Our motto is ‘to support both ecological and human diversity’.

Camp Counsellors will get paid for 270-275 hours over the course of the summer. Wage will be $13-$15/hour depending on experience, and any hours over 40 in a week will be paid $19.50-$22.50/hr.
