Working at Explorations Camp

Be part of a team of passionate educators and specialists

McGill Explorations Camp was founded in 1982 by a group of McGill University Professors. Founding goals included research on “giftedness,” the development of a model program and a general support for teacher education -- a camp which engaged children in a rich learning environment and where learning and fun were synonymous. Activities continue to be led by certified teachers who are specialists in the fields of mathematics, fine arts, technology and media, science, music, physical education, environmental studies and early childhood education. The camp also engages local senior High School and College students who participate as Camp Assistants.
This summer, Explorations Camp is looking for 6 dynamic, motivated and reliable College or University-level students to help organize and oversee our many programs and activities. These individuals will be full time employees from the week before Explorations Camp until the week following camp, June 26 to August 4. To apply, please send your resume and a cover letter to (Please note: These positions are subject to approval of Government Funding)
