The Camp Staff We Choose

Each year, we assemble a unique summer camp staff team to work at Kettleby Valley. Of course, some roles such as lifeguards, canoe instructors and climbing staff require specific certifications, and we can sometimes help with these certifications. However, there are a few qualities that we look for in all of our staff, no matter their position:

First, they must know the importance of making everyone feel welcome at camp. We want staff who are able to build connections and create an environment where kids are included and feel safe to be themselves.

Second, our staff must be here at camp to contribute to their camper’s experience wherever they can. They all understand that their social needs are secondary to those of the kids at camp. For our campers, fulfillment and enjoyment comes from the opportunity to make friends, learn skills and take on new challenges. For our staff, fulfillment must come from creating these opportunities for their campers.

Finally, they must understand the link between the demands of the job and achieving the rewards. Working at camp has its challenges, but there are few jobs that come with the satisfaction we receive through helping campers grow during their time at Kettleby Valley. If we want to feel fulfilled with our working experience, we must all be willing to put in the work.

If you feel as though you possess these qualities, then it’s a great start. We would love to consider you for our team! Please consider completing our online staff application and we will contact you to arrange a time to meet.

Kettleby Valley Camp

A Traditional Summer Camp That's Close To Home

Through careful supervision, our counsellors build confidence in our campers by fostering resilience and a healthy sense of independence. An experience at KVC gives everyone the opportunity to contribute to our camp community.

Our Philosophy

We insist that each camper displays respect both to themselves and to others. Camp staff encourage campers to show determination in the things they choose to do. At summer camp, the children learn to take responsibility and show accountability for their choices and actions.

Finally, our summer camp philosophy teaches children the importance of being independent while having the strength to admit when they need help.
