Camp Opportunities

Community Advisory Boards

Community Advisory Boards are committed groups of individuals passionate about each camp’s mission and programming. We are committed to being a diverse and inclusive community that helps advise, advocate, and support the strategic direction and mission deliveries.  

Recruitment for board members is an annual process. Each Camps Executive Director and Board Development Committee work to help recruit and onboard new board members. 

Resource Families

Resource Families assist other Family Campers and staff throughout the session with various activities. Being a Resource Family costs only $100 for a week-long session.

  • Camp du Nord — Camp du Nord also charges a meal service fee. Resource Families stay in the Nipigon cabin or the Yurt.
  • Camp Northern Lights — Each family is responsible for providing their food. Resource Families stay in Haukka, a full-facility cabin in Buena Vista Village.
Work Weekends

Work weekends are a great way to return for a visit and give back by helping us prepare for the upcoming seasons.
