Real World Experience


The Explorations Camp Assistant Leadership Program is a great way for young adults (completed Grade 9 up to CEGEP) to gain valuable knowledge and hands-on experience in a fun, collaborative and dynamic setting.
Our team of Camp Assistants are on hand to assist our Activity Leaders and Administrative team in ensuring that Explorations Camp offers the best possible experience to our campers. The CAs will have access to training, guidance and feedback as they learn a variety of skills that will help them succeed in their future endeavors.
At the end of the program, our assistants will receive an honorarium for their help throughout the four weeks, as well as a full evaluation and a letter of recommendation (if requested).

What's in a Day?

Explorations Camp Assistants are assigned various tasks and responsibilities as they assist our Activity Leaders in support of a positive camper experience. Duties include the safe delivery of our younger campers to their first period activities as well as assisting with parental pickup of campers at the end of the day. CAs are also called on to assist at snack times and during the lunch period. They also help to animate activities and outdoor play during our recreation breaks. We are most mindful in assigning CAs to assist with activities that they are familiar with and enjoy on a personal level. For example, a CA who has theatre experience, computer skills or knowledge of media and presentation will be called upon to participate in and support an activity congruent with their talents and interests, wherever possible.
As the opportunity arises, Camp Assistants receive valuable feedback from our leaders and Leadership coordinator and are given opportunities to share opinions and to discuss new ideas. It is our belief that our Camp Assistant Program encourages personal growth and maturity in a nurturing and collaborative environment. It is interesting to note that a majority of our Camp Assistants are former Explorations Campers, many of whom have been with the camp since they began as junior campers.
