Camp Quality Manitoba is a volunteer driven non-profit charitable organization that provides free uplifting camp experiences for children affected by cancer and blood disorders and their families. We facilitate a 1-week overnight camp program, hosted at Variety Camp Brereton in Whiteshell Provincial Park, Manitoba. Camp Quality was brought to Canada in 1988, initiated by a group of dedicated volunteers in Southern Ontario. Our overnight camp programs serve campers between the ages of 7 - 17. We are seeking enthusiastic and motivated volunteers for our summer camp program.

Overnight Summer Camp

Our overnight camp program give kids affected by cancer a chance to just be kids! What’s unique about Camp Quality? Our campers are matched 1:1 with a volunteer Companion (Camp Counsellor) who is there to support them throughout the week. While we do everything in groups at camp for safety, this 1:1 matching provides both campers and caregivers with a level of assurance that their child is well taken care of. You can expect many classic camp activities, like swimming, sports and games, canoeing, adventure, arts and crafts and more! Our year-round Camp Organizing Committee volunteers plan the schedule and activities for the week.

Description of Role

As a program volunteer, you could be assigned to a number of roles at camp; which you can indicate your preference on your application form. Companions are the 1:1 match volunteers, who have the opportunity to participate alongside their camper, playing games, singing songs, encouraging and cheering them on as they engage in the program and make new friends.

At camp, we also have Super Companions. They support in giving Companions breaks during the week, help lead activities and more! In this role, you’ll show up ready for fun and be flexible! This role is really cool, because you get to engage with lots of campers during the week!

Volunteers have the opportunity to lead a pre-planned activity at camp if they like; we encourage you to indicate this on your volunteer application.
