Camp Canadian Island is the ideal work destination for those who first of all, LOVE CAMP and second of all want an alternative way to travel.

Working at Canadian Island is a once in a lifetime experience, that is something truly unique to add to your resume. At both our overnight and day camp you are bathed in the beauty of the Tuscan hills and submerged in nature, while living an international experience amongst other native English speakers from all over the world.

All of our counsellors are provided housing for the duration of their work experience with us.

It is our objective to create a respectful camp environment where staff feel supported and that their ideas are heard.

Counsellors duties include; looking after the overall well being of the campers, planning camp wide activities, leading a rotation ( sport, theatre, or art), planning stations for afternoon activities and leading an English lesson.

Counsellors live in the same quarters as the campers but are not in the same room as them. You will be assigned to a room of children in the rennovated farmhouse and help them in specific times of the day. Unlike, most camps in North America you do not stay with your group all day, nor do they stay with one another in all of the activities that they do. In non- programmed moments you will do everything with them from making sure that they have brushed their teeth, to preparing their talent show pieces , or simply talking them through a bad day at camp and reading an extra book to the children who are missing mom and dad .

We believe that staff return year after year because of the magic that our camps create and the bonds that the counsellors make with eachother, the supervisors and the campers.

If you have the heart of a child, love travelling and want to explore your creativity, Camp Canadian Island is the perfect place for you.
