The Brother Brennan Centre is a camp located in the Newfoundland wilderness of the Avalon Peninsulas beautiful Fog Forest. The Centre hosts school groups in spring and fall for 2 day / 1 night overnight trips during which they are immersed in activities designed to get them outdoors, close to nature and making their school learning come to life in the real world.

The successful candidate will need a valid first aid certificate and a police record check with vulnerable sector check. Own transport is preferred, but we always try to carpool.
To apply please send a resume and cover letter explaining why you are a good candidate and whether you have other assets that may be helpful for the job e.g. ability to teach in French or play music for singalongs at the campfire.
