Camp Tamakwa

This Summer was my first time working in a Summer camp, but using AmeriCamp Canada enabled me to find a camp that couldn’t have been more suited to me. I had the time of my life! In the role of Senior Councillor at Camp Tamakwa, I was able to try out all of the activities the camp had to offer, explore the beautiful Algonquin Park by canoe and make some truly amazing friends.

If I were to sum up my time at AmeriCamp Canada it would be incredible. The people, the location, the kids, everything. The support I received from the Camp Canada team meant that acquiring my visa and organizing travel arrangements were smooth and easy. I would recommend it to everyone!

Application Stage

• First you’ll need to complete an application with us. This tells us your skills, experience, your medical/criminal background history, and gives you an opportunity to tell us about yourself! Once complete, you’ll then be invited to interview via Skype, which will take place with one of our Campus Managers. Your interviewer will take you through your application, highlight your strengths and make sure your skills are relevant to camp.

Acceptance Stage

• Once your interview report has been written, and we have received your references, application video and a programme agreement then it is time for your application to be shared with our Canadian Camp Directors! If a camp director is interested in hiring you, you’ll have a Skype interview with them where they can get to know you and ask you a few questions.

Placement Stage

• Once you’ve received confirmation that you’ve been placed, you’ll then be asked to complete the last few documents, such as your background check, health history form, the relevant visa documents and flights. You’ll also be asked to attend a mandatory orientation too in London or Manchester, here you can find out everything you need to know and meet new friends.

Is AmeriCamp Canada for everyone? (Something to consider)

AmeriCamp Canada is not everyone’s idea of a holiday and it’s not always relaxing. At times you may find yourself in testing circumstances, as you would when experiencing any new culture.

Before applying to take part in AmeriCamp Canada, please understand that it’s a high-octane experience! It isn’t a luxury holiday, and one of our main focuses is to get involved with the activities at Camp, which often comes with hard work.

Is Wi-Fi available at Camp?

Do we have access to cooking facilities or a kitchen at Camp?

Food and accommodation is included during your time at Camp.

Will I get time to travel after Camp?

Certainly! With so many amazing places in Canada we encourage this!

Will I make friends at AmeriCamp Canada?

Definitely! You will be making friends from the moment you land in Canada, friends you will keep for life after sharing such an amazing experience.
