There are so many reasons to spend a summer working at Camp Riverwood!

  • As a staff member you will receive many opportunities to grow, learn and gain amazing leadership experiences working with children and other staff. But most importantly Camp Riverwood will provide you with the most memorable summer experience.
  • Our philosophy is that happy staff make for happy campers. We therefore create a work environment that is fun, challenging, and supportive. Staff should be prepared to come to camp everyday ready to sing, dance, cheer, get wet, get dirty, and have fun!
  • Prior to the commencement of camp, you must have at least completed Grade 10.
  • Staff must have (or obtain prior to the summer) a current First Aid and CPR certificate.
  • During the camp season, FREE daily transportation to and from the camp is provided from The Beaches, West Hill, Scarborough, Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Brooklin and Oshawa.
