Position Description

Camps Superstars are a key support for our staff leaders during TELUS Spark Camps. As a Camps Superstar, you are primarily responsible for helping to create safe, fun, and educational experiences for campers. If you love science, kids, fun, and are looking for ways to build your resume, this could be the right position for you!

This is an excellent opportunity for aspiring camp leaders to learn about and assist with camps logistics. The experience and training provided by Spark camps help to create a great foundation for future camp leaders and educators. As a camps volunteer, you will develop a wide variety of skills and have a great deal of fun!

A Camps Superstar might begin their day by leading a game. Then their group gathers and they help engage campers in morning activities. They help to supervise lunch time and have a break for their own lunch. In the afternoon, their group might go to a Dome show or see science demo, and then have another activity related to the theme of the camp. At the end of the day, they clean up and prepare for the next day.
