Thanks for your interest in joining the Camp Potlatch team!
We just wrapped up another incredible summer season and are busy providing more camp experiences to a variety of groups throughout September and October.
Stay tuned for more information about the employment opportunities we have available for the 2018 season to be released in December. We begin accepting applications and scheduling interviews early January.


Who do We Hire

At Camp Potlatch, we look for individuals who have a variety of skills and talents to offer and better our camp community. Above all else, it’s our staff team’s desire to bring out the best in the kids we work with and belief that every kid is capable of the extraordinary that sets our campers up for success.

Staff members are mature and responsible. They role model the values of the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Coast BC, and put the needs of their campers above all else. The care of Potlatch campers is the first and foremost priority of every staff member.

We also look for individuals who are fun and creative. Our staff members are willing to get down and play just as hard as out campers! During camp wide activities and mass swims, our staff members are engaged with our kids, leading cheer-offs, dressed in full costume and body paint, and encouraging all campers to participate.

Successful candidates are patient and compassionate. We work with a diverse population of campers, many of whom need gentle encouragement and positive reinforcements to change negative behaviours.

Working in an overnight camp setting is demanding. Each child’s emotional, physical, and social care is our 24/7 responsibility. Despite challenges, working at camp can also be incredibly rewarding. Camp staff leave camp more responsible, independent, and with increased confidence.
