Working at Rainbow Day Camp is an amazing experience and we take great care in choosing our team each year. Any current or past counsellor will tell you that applying for this job takes time but being part of this team is worth every bit of effort.


Please note that we never look for one “type” of person – we welcome many different kids at camp and therefore, we hire many different types of people. Some of our counsellors are artistic while others can’t draw a stick figure. Some are loud, others are not. We have extroverts and introverts. Tall people, short people. Musical and…..not!


What Rainbow counsellors all have in common, however, is a love of working with children and a desire to make camp a safe and wonderful space for all children. We hire people who can work as part of a team and who believe that we can achieve greatness by all working together. Rainbow counsellors are fun, able to laugh at themselves, love being outside, are not afraid to act silly, are responsible, love being with children, and want to have an unforgettable summer!

Staff must have CPR "C" certification before camp begins. HIGH FIVE® Principles of Healthy Child Development is an asset and Rainbow will provide the training before camp.

Working as a camp counsellor gives you more skills and life lessons than you can ever imagine. Check out what the American Camp Association believes you can learn as a camp counsellor
