Youth Guitar Camp

Seeking Camp Counsellors:

SYGC requires at least 4 camp counsellors, preferably aged 19 – 25 years old. Experience playing musical instruments is not a requirement, though it is an asset! Counsellors are required to stay overnight at camp, and food and lodging are provided.

Responsibilities can include: sleeping in campers’ cabins, participating in camp activities, helping with camp maintenance, preparing camp workshops, attending all meals and camp wide meetings, upholding camp agreements for respect and wellness.

If counsellors uphold their responsibilities, they are paid $500.00 via cheque, on the last day at camp.
