Welcome to the Camp Canada Knowledge Base

I'm not sure about the camp I'm on review with. What do I do?

I don't like the camp position I've been offered.

If you are unsure about the camp you are on review with, you should connect with the Community Success Team (communitysuccess@campcanada.ca) and talk through your concerns. We recommend doing this before responding to the camp director

Oftentimes, a camp website is geared towards their parent and camper community, and it can be hard to get a feel for what the international staff experience may be like.

Our Community Success Team is very knowledgeable about the camps we work with, and the Camp Canada team has also visited almost all of the camps we work with! We can provide you with in-depth knowledge about the camp, and help you make your decision. Our team is also made up of individuals who have attended a variety of the camps we work with.

It is also important to note that going on review with a camp does not happen randomly! It will happen in two different ways:

  • The Camp Canada Team has put you on review because they feel it would be a good fit for you
  • A camp director has searched through our portal. Directors can search for participants by skills, availability, camp preferences and other criteria listed in your application.

If you decide to not accept an interview with a camp, that is absolutely fine. However, later on in the process, if you think that the original camp was a good match for you, you may not be able to go back to being on review at this camp. Camps fill positions very quickly and if you declined an interview previously, that role has likely already been filled.
