Outdoor Rec Employment
Outdoor Recreation (OREC) and Retreat Program
Camp Kadesh is currently seeking talented staff to be part of our Fall Outdoor Recreation programs.
The Outdoor Recreation (OREC) Program at Camp Kadesh is a recreation based program that emphasizes an active, healthy lifestyle and focuses on the development of character and potential. The OREC program serves schools from all over Saskatchewan, with guests ranging from grade 6 to grade 12. A class trip to Camp Kadesh provides students with opportunities to develop new friendships, work together as a team and have a truly unique and fun outdoor experience. In May and June Camp Kadesh hosts over 1,600 students and their teachers. In Fall and Winter, our program focuses on individual school groups, these groups vary in size from 15 to over 80.
Come and be part of a close-knit community, where we teach young people sports, camp activities and help create memorable, positive experiences. This program is a Camp Kadesh outreach into the public and catholic school systems to introduce students to Camp Kadesh, and by our actions, the love of Jesus. Large numbers of these students that come will end up coming back as campers in summer.

What does a week look like?
Our weeks run Monday to Friday (no weekends). We typically ask staff to be (back) on site by Sunday evening, this avoids any travel issues on Monday morning. Monday's start with a staff meeting and some general set up. The first schools arrives in time for lunch on Monday.
A typical day consists for two activities in the morning and three activities in the afternoon for students, the evening then has one large activity or game and a campfire as the final thing before heading to bed. OREC staff are responsible for the execution of these various activites under the direction of the Program Coordinators and the Associate Director.
Staff sleep in cabins with the students, but only a few nights a weeks, the other evenings are consider "off"
Staff also work on rotating teams to assist with serving and clean up of meals. Even full time staff jump in on this part of the day and help with serving and dishes where needed.
