Each summer, we hire a staff team of fun, qualified, caring, and committed leaders. Every staff member helps make a meaningful and lasting contribution to our campers.
A staff position at Ryerson Summer Day Camps is uniquely rewarding. Staff members have the opportunity to work with children, spend their summer on the beautiful campus of Ryerson University, and work with others who have one thing in common: providing exceptional summer experiences to children and youth. At Ryerson Summer Day Camps, you can be yourself. You can share your talent and creativity with an amazing staff team. And you can have a real impact on the lives of your campers.
Ryerson Summer Day Camps has an established reputation as a day camp leader in Toronto. Our success stems from the recruitment of staff members who are positive role models, strong leaders, keen team players, and who demonstrate an ongoing commitment to continued personal and professional growth.
Working as a Camp staff member may not be the highest paid job one will hold. But it is a job that, if done well, offers immense satisfaction.
