Summer Camp leader

Location: Cold Lake & French Bay

Posted: April 30, 2021

We’re Hiring: LCFASD Summer Camp Staff!!

All about camp:

Located on the shores of French Bay, the Lakeland Centre for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (LCFASD) hosts week-long overnight camps that give kids with FASD ages 7-17 the chance to have an unforgettable summer camp experience. The children at the camp can be themselves, meet other children who share their experiences and most importantly, they can have FUN!

About LCFASD’s amazing camp Staff:

We are looking to build our energetic 2021 LCFASD Summer Camp team!! Camp is hosted by experienced counsellors who understand the special needs of children with FASD.
