Summer Volunteer Opportunities
At Ontario Pioneer Camp, our volunteer summer staff team is divided into two main categories: program staff and support staff. Our program staff are those staff who work directly with the campers. Roles in this category include chalet leaders, waterfront staff, activity leaders, and all others who care directly for the campers who attend Pioneer's many programs. In exchange for service, summer volunteers are provided room and board along with a $40 per week honorarium.
Our support staff are those staff who do not work directly with the campers and instead focus on supporting the program staff. Roles included in this category include babysitters, nurses, doctors, food service staff, maintenance workers, office staff and drivers.
