Why work at Haliburton Scout Reserve?

Leadership Experience and Opportunities

Being on staff provides you many chances to develop your leadership skills by leading program lessons, assisting campers/guests, working as a team, learning new skills, teaching others,  being in charge of small groups of staff, and leading staff recreational activities. Step out of your comfort zone and try something new! 

We're Not Like Other Camps

We are not camp counsellors like you see at other summer camps. Youth come to camp with their Scouters and camp on their own sites for the week. We run the program activities, operate the stores, maintain the property, cook for staff, and much more! Since we have this different schedule, we get to participate in staff recreational activities and have down time in the evenings. 

Life Long Friends and Connections

Staff get to know one another very well during their time at camp, especially when they return year after year. Camp is the best place to get to know others from across the province and do lots of fun things with! Our staff recs, job positions, and down time give us the best opportunity to make lifelong friends. And we have an Alumni Weekend every summer that allows past staff to reconnect with the camp and old friends.

FAQ

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions for being on staff at HSR. If there are additional questions, please message us on Instagram or Facebook, or email us at hsr2@scouts.ca 

Is there a mandatory Training Weekend we need to attend?

Yes, our Training Weekend for 2024 will be at Woodland Trails in Stouffville May 17-19, 2024. 

This training weekend is mandatory for all staff. At this orientation you will meet the rest of the staff team, learn more about your responsibilities for your position, camp practices/regulations, various training sessions, share your input to our kitchen staff on what to eat at camp, and most importantly, have fun!

What do I bring?

What's pre-camp?

Pre-camp is the week (sometimes longer for returning staff) before we open. This will be when your contract starts for 2024 on June 23rd. If you are not able to arrive on the 23rd due to exams, please let us know and we can accommodate your schedule.

In pre-camp, we will do more job specific training, prepare program areas for lessons, prepare camp sites with necessary equipment/maintenance, putting in the H-Dock, camp property orientation, and much more. We have a big property and there is a lot of behind the scenes work that goes into it. The more staff the help with these tasks, the easier it is!

Are there any certifications I need?

Once you are hired, you will need to attain the Pleasure Craft Operators Card. This course takes about 3 hours, there is a fee and an exam. This course and exam can be done online. This needs to be attained prior to your contract start date.

Courses are available for all in-person classes and also in mixed online/in-person. This needs to be attained prior to your contract start date.

Is there a staff uniform?

Uniform

We have two types of uniform shirts, staff hoodie, and navy blue shorts. 

The green uniform t-shirt is worn for most departments during the work day. 

The green collared uniform shirt is worn by everyone for dinner everyday, by Store staff everyday, on Saturdays for arrivals/departures, and Waterfront staff on Sundays for canoe lessons. These shirts are always tucked in. 

The staff hoodie can be worn anytime with your uniform. 

Navy blue shorts are required as part of all uniform combinations. They must be formal (i.e. not drawstring, activewear, or loungewear). These are your responsibility to purchase and are not provided by us. We recommend having 3+ pairs. Navy blue long pants that are formal can also be worn on cold days.

Two of the green uniform t-shirt, two of the green collared uniform shirts, and 1 staff hoodie are provided to each staff member. Additional shirts and hoodies are available to purchase upon request. 

Sizes and additional uniform shirts/hoodies requests will be collected at Training Weekend. 

You are required to be in the proper uniform during work hours and at dinner everyday. It is also your responsibility to keep your uniform clean. Laundry facilities are available on the property.

Footwear

All staff should have comfortable closed-toe shoes (like running shoes) for everyday use, completing tasks around the property, etc. 

Crocs or water shoes can be used when doing water activities or barge driving. Should not be worn at other program areas, in Store, in Kitchen, or Maintenance. 

Store: comfortable closed toe shoes

Is there Wi-Fi at camp?

We do have internet connection for our office to conduct our work and other elements of the camp operation. It can be used by staff for minimal school use or other important tasks. 

It is not openly available to use for streaming, social media, video calls, etc. There is cell phone coverage on the property and can get good cell service in most areas of the property. Staff are encouraged to embrace the outdoors, connecting with other staff, and enjoying all that camp has to offer. It is a great time to disconnect from our devices. 

Are there medical services at camp?

There sure is! We have an on-site clinic with a nurse every week. We will also have the occasional doctor on site. Staff should see the nurse if they are not feeling well or need medical guidance. The nurse is also a fantastic person to talk to about mental health. 

If there is a time you need to go the emergency room or a pharmacy, we can bring you into town. 

There are two pharmacies in town if you need to refill a prescription while you are at camp as well: Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall.

If there are medical concerns or medication we should be aware of, please let us know when you sign your contract. 

Can I complete a summer school course while I am working at camp?

We do not recommend being enrolled in a course while you are working at camp. Quite frankly, you'll be too busy working and having fun! We have many staff recs after dinner throughout the summer for you to connect with your fellow staff and you won't want to miss them. You will also be busy with work most days. 

What can I do on my day off?

There is plenty to do on your day off - enjoy the day!

Everyone gets one day off per week. The day varies by department and may vary week by week. If there is a specifc day you need off, please talk to your supervisor.
