Staff Positions

Spend the most unforgettable summer of your life with us

We provide different camp programs all summer long; to do so, we employ staff full-time in the summer.

We invest 2 weeks of paid training in our staff team and provide ongoing support throughout the summer. You will develop skills in communication, professionalism, conflict management, risk management, accessibility & adaptability and so much more!

This experience allows you to positively impact the lives of children and families who have experienced childhood cancer. What you are left with after a summer working at camp is more than you could ever wish for, you are left with: a box of warm fuzzies, a lifetime worth of laughter, the most epic swim suit tan lines that will last you months, superior dress up skills, moments that melted your heart, and lifelong friendships. Be one of the people that make Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium the magical place that it is by applying below.

Your video makes for a great way for us to get a sense of your personality and motivation to work at camp. Your application video is meant to show who you are, so relax, be yourself, and get creative! Remember, your video does not have to meet any certain requirements. It can be as short as 30-60 seconds, or as long as you’d like. You can even include a slideshow of photos that shows your participation in sports, examples of your art, clips of performances, etc. Have fun with it!

Video Instructions:

  1. Film your video. Somewhere quiet.
  2. You can use your phone or a camera
  3. Preview your video before uploading to ensure your message is clear of background sound.
  4. Upload your video onto YouTube. Be sure to make it private
  5. Provide the link to your video on the video application below.

Tips for your video application:

In your application we are wanting to get to know you and not a run down of your resume.  Avoid providing a summary of your resume in your application and focus more on telling us about you as a person.

APPLICATIONS are accepted until all positions are filled.

We can’t wait to receive your application!  We begin to hire in January and continue until all our positions are filled with the most amazing people!

No One Says it Better than the Staff

Our Campers have faced so much in their day to day lives, and to be able to provide them with an escape (and week full of wacky costumes, campfire songs, games and glitter) is the greatest gift.

Working at camp rewards you with memories, friends, new skills and a whole new perspective.


I remember finishing my very first day of staff training and thinking ‘WOW! I can’t believe Camp Trillium is going to be my home for the next three months.’ Little did I know that it would continue to be my home away from home for the next four years and counting!


My favourite part of everyday was the end of campfire, when we would all link arms and sing the goodnight song. We would sway left and right and together sing the chorus- may you dream of love, peace and hope, and may all of your dreams come true.


You get to see campers grow and challenge themselves, and leave at the end of the week with an all new understanding of what they can do, who they are, and who they want to be.
