Why Work With Us
Throughout the year we typically have four seasonal contracts to offer:

We try our best to be as flexible as possible in regards to the start and end of your contract dates. Some staff stay on for a short 2-month contract while others have decided to sign on for several seasons in a row!”
Accommodations & Meals
We understand that most applicants do not live within driving distance of our site. So to make it easier for our staff team, we offer staff housing! Cozy cabins with shared rooms with private or shared bathrooms.
While there are guests/visitors on site, there will be meals provided for our staff team also. When we do not have any meals being served for guests, staff will have access to a kitchen area to store and prepare their own meals.
Develop New Skills
We have been extremely lucky to have staff members from all walks of life being a part of the Pine Crest family! This includes current and future teachers, Day Camp staff, high school, college and university students, and even people who have retired from their previous career and wanted to experience something new.
All staff members will be provided with a wide range of trainings to prepare you for your role - with many skills being completely new for you! From learning how to pitch a tent or paddling techniques at Outdoor Pursuits, knot tying and High Ropes facilitation as an Outdoor Educator and even new culinary skills in the kitchen, we provide a wide range of trainings and learning opportunities!
