WHO WE ARE

CFMWS. A job with purpose. Our 4000+ person strong organization champions a healthy, fun, creative and active lifestyle for Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans and their families.

THE ROLE

Picture getting paid to spend the whole summer with a child or children with special needs who require your help integrating into their group. You’ll have to adapt to them while finding ways to get them to safely participate in the group’s various activities (going to the pool, playing in the park, doing arts and crafts…)! Wouldn’t that be great?



Imagine being able to let out your inner child and never get bored, while adding an important skill to your resume.

We’re looking for summer camp companions for children from kindergarten to grade 6 with inclusion support needs. Each week will be a new adventure with a host of indoor, but mostly outdoor activities. You’ll gain experience in stimulating children with special needs as well as in crisis intervention, programming adaptation and humanism. Your role will be vital to the camp and will have a positive impact on the lives of the children using the inclusion support service.
