Who are we and what do we do?

You may have heard our name before! For the past 14 years, the Nyquest team has helped place thousands of international camp counsellors at summer camps across Canada.

We’re looking for camp counsellors who are keen to keep the camp spirit alive this summer! So much of the spirit of camp is in the connections made between counsellors and their campers. Camp counsellors are a resourceful bunch, and we know that by creating opportunities for these connections to continue, you’ll be able to bring the spirit of YOUR camp to the kids (and parents!) who really need it! 

If you’re ready to bring camp to the kids this summer, challenge yourself to get creative in the backyards of your city and read on!

How will it work?

You’ll complete an application, submit a reference from your camp director, and then we’ll conduct a short screening interview with you, so that we can get to know you better and represent you accurately to families.

Once accepted, you’ll be able to set your hourly wage expectation and availability. 

Families will search our portal for whatever they’re looking for – based on age, location, skill set, experience, camp connection or more! We will also be getting to know and then recommending counsellors to our families, which is something we have done for over 10 years in our international staffing business. Parents will reach out to let you know about their family and specific needs, and you will be able to ask them any questions you may have too. 

Once you’re hired, you can make specific arrangements with the family. This could be a temporary arrangement for a week or two, or it could be the whole summer! We expect that you will communicate with the parents if your plans change, or if things do not work out. 


You are…

  • At least 18 years old
  • A camp counsellor, or counsellor-in-training
  • Able to provide a camp reference 
  • Have childcare experience
  • Either an all-rounder who can get stuck into any activity with kids, or especially skilled in one or a few activities. 
  • If you have qualifications (CPR/First Aid/Lifeguarding), amazing! They are not a requirement, but we know parents will love it if you have them. 

How can I get involved?
