    At camp for every season

    We won’t blame you if you thought camp was only a summer thing, but Camp Evergreen is more than the average sleepaway camp! Our site is bustling with activity all year round, and we need great staff to help us operate our seasons: Spring (May and June), Summer (July and August), Fall (September to mid-November) and Winter (November to April).

    Is Camp Really For Me?

    We hear it all the time that some people just don’t think they’re “camp people.” The truth is there’s no fixed mould for amazing camp staff – but they do need to love God and love people. We are looking for people with diverse interests and personalities. Sure, we play a lot of outdoor games and do awesome activities like horseback riding, ziplining and wall climbing, but that’s only one side of what we do. We’ve got campers that love to draw, create, read books, or just hang out. We need staff that can make connections with our campers by sharing in their interests, whether that is sitting by the creek and having solid conversations, or going wild in an epic paintball match. Most of all, we’re looking for people dedicated to serving God and sharing His Gospel with our campers so that together we can see individual lives transformed by the power of Jesus.

    Fall & Winter

    (Septmeber – Novemeber, November – April)

    During the Fall and Winter seasons, Camp Evergreen hires up to 20 staff members. These months are busy with Guest Groups, weekend rentals, band camps and our own retreats.

    Work, Play & Grow

    Behind the scenes at Evergreen

    The Developing Leaders programs are offered to campers in grades 9 - 12 who dream of one day becoming staff at Camp Evergreen. Campers will be based on our main site which houses our new cabins, kitchen and dining hall, washroom facilities and indoor/outdoor activity facilities.

    What will I get to do in a Developing Leaders program?

    Developing Leaders campers may even be eligible for high school credit!
    We offer three Developing Leaders programs for different age groups.

    • Pit Crew – this two week, junior staff training program gives a behind-the-scenes experience of Camp Evergreen along with all the fun and activities campers love and expect. Pit Crew spends portions of each day serving in the nitty-gritty areas that are essential to making summer camp run – working in the kitchen, cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming the dining hall and helping to run games with the staff. They also participate in activities, discipleship training and fun with their Crew. Pit Crew is available to campers in grades 9 & 10.
    • Wrangler Up – These camps are for horse enthusiasts and designed for our future Evergreen Wranglers. Refine your riding, saddling and cleaning skills while forming friendships which last a lifetime. Wrangler Up Jr. is available for campers in grades 8-10 and Wrangler Up Sr. is available for campers in grades 10-12.
    • Internships – This four week, immersive training program is designed to fuel our campers’ passions, teach them and disciple them as they prepare to become Camp Evergreen staff. Interns will work alongside our staff as they train in focus areas like cabin leading, audio/visual, activities, or kitchen. Internships are available to campers in grades 11 & 12.

    Where will I sleep and what’s for dinner?

    Campers in our Developing Leaders programs will stay in groups in cabins or in our main lodge. The cabins are in close proximity to washroom facilities and have bunk beds for your stay. Our lodge has full washroom facilities as well. Our kitchen staff (with help from Pit Crew and Interns) prepares three, delicious homemade meals each day as well as an evening snack. Campers will be well fueled for all their activities with balanced, age-appropriate options. At Camp Evergreen “seconds” could be our favourite word…

    What is the spiritual atmosphere like?

    We want our campers to grow - not only physically, mentally and socially, but spiritually as well. As we train our next generation of staff through the Developing Leaders programs, we want to help them grow in their personal relationships with Jesus Christ, teach them about servant leadership and challenge them to pursue God every day whether they are at Camp or not. Pit Crew will have dedicated discipleship sessions each day with their leaders. Interns will explore topics in depth as they discuss them over the course of a week. Wrangler Up will have discipleship sessions at our Barn which focus on the spiritual truth God teaches us through working with horses.

    What safety measures are in place during summer camp?

    At Camp Evergreen we take safety seriously and ensure the following precautions are in place during all of our summer camps:

    • Designated Medical Personnel (DMP) are on site at all times. DMPs are trained in CPR and First Aid, store and administer all medications (prescription or otherwise) and document all medical incidents.
    • Staff have current Standard First Aid certificates and have gone through Safe Place Policy training.
    • Staff and volunteers have current Criminal Record Checks with Vulnerable Sector Searches on file.
    • Up-to-date accreditation from the Association of Challenge Course Technology.

    We understand sending your child to a sleepaway camp is a big deal so we have lots of detailed resources for parents:
