FRENCH SUMMER CAMP JOBS

Camp Counselor

Day camp or overnight camp

In-person and full-time in July + August

Spend your summer with Camp Tournesol! At our various day camp locations across the GTA or at our overnight camps in Muskoka, you’ll be working with other enthusiastic counselors to deliver French programming to children ages 4-14. This entails leading tons of pre-planned French games and activities (which means you get to practice your own French language skills too!). The focus will always be on creating a positive and supportive atmosphere for our campers while challenging them to use their French in new situations. Our regional coordinators and office team will also have your back to make sure our quality camps are running smoothly.

Requirements:

Junior Camp Counselor

Have you recently completed grade 10? Join us and gain experience learning the basic counselor skills in the Junior Counselor position before you can apply as a full counselor. 

NOTE: We are NOT running overnight camps in 2021. Overnight camp counselor jobs will not be posted.

Team Leader

Day camp

In-person and full-time in July + August

Love French camp but are looking for more leadership? Join us as a Team Leader!

Manage a group of staff to help them deliver French programming and ensure the successful operation of their campus. There are two Team Leaders per site, and they are supported by our Regional Coordinators and office team. Staff in this position will be responsible for instructional periods (e.g. book club, language modules) and will support all staff in delivering all other modules of programming. The Team Leader will also act as a mentor for Counselors-In-Training on-site.

You are particularly welcome to apply for our overnight camp counselor positions as accommodation and food is provided and included in your compensation package. If you love nature and the outdoors and engaging in camp games, campfires, swimming, climbing and more, move-in with us and have a fantastic summer!

Requirements to apply:

  • Ability to communicate in French with ease
  • Experience working with children is an asset
  • High school diploma or equivalent

If you have not yet completed grade 10, you may be eligible to join us as a Counselor-in-Training (CIT) if you are in grades 7-8, or as a volunteer if you are in grade 9. Learn more about these opportunities here.

If you are applying as a day camp/overnight camp counselor or as a team leader, you must be able to speak both French and English fluently and with ease. 

If you are applying for one of our office jobs, speaking French is an asset but is not required. 

If you are hired as a day camp counselor, you must be available full-time during July and August. Most of our campuses run all summer and we strongly prefer the same counselors to be present throughout all weeks. 

We do not run camps in May and June and therefore cannot offer full-time counselor/team leader positions during those months. 

We do run school workshops and short overnight trips occasionally in May, June, and year-round. We recruit past camp counselors/team leaders to staff these trips.

Absolutely not! We welcome candidates of any age above 15 given that they have adequate relevant experience. If you are applying as a team leader, please note that you must be at least 20 years old.

Students in grades 10-12 who would prefer to be granted volunteer hours instead of a paid salary have the option to do so.

Yes!

  • Become CPR-C and Emergency First Aid certified (if you are not already)
  • Complete a Criminal Record Check (Vulnerable sector) (more information below)
  • Participate in new staff training
