Under the general direction of a Recreation Programmer, the Youth Leader will provide direct supervision to Program Assistants and participants in spring break day camps. Youth Leaders will be responsible for planning and supervising relevant activities in a variety of programs for youth. This also involves ensuring the safety and well-being of participants and communicating and working cooperatively with participants, parents, coordinators and supervisors. Spring break day camps will include the following:
General Day Camps: Enjoy developing and working within creative weekly themes like Masterchef, Superheroes, or Animal Planet just to name a few. Successful candidates will come with a large variety of games, sports, and crafts ideas. Creativity and ingenuity are key! Activities such as swimming round out these fun, popular camps. These camps are hosted within our recreation centres.
Aquatic Day Camps: Do you love the water and have experience with swimming and various water sports? Enjoy working in great aquatic facilities with activities such as daily swimming lessons, fun swims, snorkeling, water polo, diving and kayaking. You will need a desire to help kids learn skills and have fun in the water. These camps may also include a mix of sports, crafts, games and an aquatic themed out-trip with lots of wild, wet, fun!
Specialty Day Camps like Cooking Camps, Sports Camps, and Art Camps: Do you have specific experience and passion in any of these areas? Successful candidates will be able to share their experience through the teaching and instruction of the basics of these specialty areas.
Requirements include completion of Grade 10, three months experience in a recreation day-camp environment, satisfactory police information check, Emergency First-Aid and CPR Level C, and a valid BC Class 4 Driver’s Licence, as required.
