Volunteer Junior Leader Program

If you are in high school and looking for a fun way to earn your high school volunteer hours and build your resume: we would love to have you participate as a Junior Leader this summer!

Junior Leaders are assistants to our Camp Counsellors throughout our Agriventure Camp. They assist with group rotations, provide support to younger campers, plan and run an activity of their choice and more!

There is no fee for this program, however, we do ask that Junior Leaders commit to volunteering for at least 2 weeks of camp to participate.
