Today’s guest post comes from NYQUEST Training and Placement in Canada…
Here at NYQUEST Training and Placement we are currently in our 8th season of operation, bringing skilled and motivated individuals from all over the world to work at summer camps across Canada, arguably on of the most stunning countries in the world. The North American summer camp opportunity is something that many young internationals are able to experience, some for many years, thanks to the existence of work and travel businesses such as NYQUEST. If you are looking for the camp experience in the Great White North (which is actually very green during the summer), NYQUEST is the number one choice for all of your needs.
As an international staff member working in Canada, you are participating in what is still a relatively unique opportunity. Canadian summer camps are not quite as saturated with international staff as US summer camps, and they really do retain that purely Canadian feel – lots of real maple syrup, plaid shirts, moose sightings and poutine, eh! The children at camp and the local Canadian staff really enjoy getting to know someone from a different part of the world – the new accents, words, stories and ways of doing things is an exceptional education piece for all! Making connections is such a huge part of the camp experience and as part of the Commonwealth, Canadians and Brits are genetically inclined to be BFFs. It’s just science.
Camp Staffing Agencies such as NYQUEST take away all of the challenges for individuals interested in working abroad. As a small business, we really take the time to get to know all of our applicants, to deal with their concerns and questions in a timely manner, and do everything within our power to ensure an individual is happy with their placement. We take care of all logistics related to legally working in Canada. NYQUEST has built very positive relationships with our Canadian Camp Directors and in turn, they trust us to provide them with exceptional staff to fill their needs and add to their program. Ultimately, we’re all still camp people and the ability to introduce young people to this incredible environment and job, which is like nothing else you will ever do, is still the most exciting thing for us.
NYQUEST Training and Placement is based in Toronto, Canada. We place individuals at summer camps in Alberta, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec.
