The Camp Kulin program wouldn’t be possible without the support of our amazing volunteers.
If you like working with children, have a good sense of humour and want to have a life changing experience, let us know. Positions are available for camp counsellors and logistics staff. No prior experience is necessary, all training is provided!
Camp Counsellors are vital to the experience of a child at camp. They are responsible for a small group of children, as well as working with the whole camp on campwide activities. The role of a camp counsellor requires patience, energy and a very good sense of humour!
Activities camp counsellors take part in throughout the week can include rock climbing, swimming, the giant Kulin waterslide, excursions to local farms, gaga dodge ball, human hungry hippos, Frisbee golf, giant human foosball, teambuilding, challenge afternoons, quiz nights, scavenger hunts, talent show, sports, art and craft, dance, ropes course elements and more.
Our team have also been known to make and play with slime, moonlight as pirates or clowns, paint their faces, start water balloon ambushes and anything else that is required to give our campers the best week of their lives!
