Due to the nature of Extended Summer Camp programs, the variety of skills required to be a suitable applicant differs from the Summer program. We are looking for applicants with experience in at least two of the following outdoor-based skills:
- Abseiling / Rappelling, Canoe Tripping, Low / High Ropes, Archery, Mountain Biking, Orienteering, Outdoor Cooking, Lifeguard, Rock Climbing
Although certifications are not required in most cases, you should be able to demonstrate your ability to lead and teach the skills you list, as this will be part of your role at September/October camp.
Please be aware, there are limited spaces available for the Extended Summer program so we strongly recommend early application. If you have a more generalized skill set, we suggest that you complete the Summer program. You may have the opportunity to extend your stay during your Summer placement.
