AmeriCamp Canada is not a temporary employment agency and should not be regarded as such. When working at summer camp you are employed by your camp, as per your contract of employment. At no point in this process are you employed by AmeriCamp Canada. Our role is to facilitate, advise and support your placement process. AmeriCamp Canada does not own the camps that we work with.
The purpose of this program agreement is to clearly detail our expectations of you as an AmeriCamp Canada applicant as well as what you can expect from AmeriCamp Canada as your recruiter.
Applicants on the AmeriCamp Canada program fall into one of the following categories:
- First time applicants – You are a first time applicant if AmeriCamp Canada is finding you a camp placement for the summer. Applicants who have previously worked in Canada at a summer camp but are wanting to work at a different camp than previous years are also classed as first time applicants.
- Returner applicants – Returners are those who have already worked at a camp in Canada and are looking to return to the same camp again. They will have already arranged a summer camp position directly with the camp they are returning to.
- Direct Placements – Direct placements are applicants who have already found and secured a summer camp position before signing up with AmeriCamp Canada..
