Wanted: Canoe Trip Leaders
Type: volunteer position with room, board, training, more (see below)
Camp Outlook
Location: Algonquin Park & Kingston, Ontario (with accom./housing)

No experience necessary! Are you interested in spending this summer taking youth on canoe trips in Algonquin Park?

Camp Outlook is hiring volunteer trip leaders for summer 2018! Volunteering with Outlook is a meaningful way to make a difference in the lives of youth while becoming a part of an open minded and accepting community, as well as getting the chance to enjoy the outdoors. No previous tripping experience is necessary.

At Camp Outlook, our mission is to provide young people a chance to develop their sense of self-worth, inner strength, and capacity to succeed. To do this we provide youth of all genders, ages 13 to 17, with the opportunity to experience wilderness camping on summer backcountry canoe trips. We use the therapeutic nature of wilderness tripping to provide an environment that allows them to respond to nature’s challenges and learn about their own abilities in a team while being supported by trained trip leaders. Teamwork and cooperation are what allows our trips to run smoothly; our trip groups often come back from their adventure as a strong community.

Our trip leaders will receive full training in June, then lead at least three canoe trips in Algonquin Park in July and August. When you are not in the park, you will live in Kingston with your co-staff and prepare your trips.

The 2018 summer runs from the end of May to the end of August. We provide room, board, and training for our volunteers, including certifications such as Mental Health First Aid, Bronze Cross, and Advanced Wilderness First Aid. We value building a diverse team, and people from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Visit to apply, or email for more information. An Outlook summer is one of a kind; full of smiles, accomplishments, and a bunch of new friends!

Deadline extended! Deadline to apply is March 23rd!
