Recruitment for the 2022 season

The YMCA day camps offer seasonal employment opportunities during the summer and school holidays (December and spring breaks). 
Our camps take place in several locations on the island of Montréal and in Québec City. Operating in YMCA centres or on premises close to the communities we serve, our camps offer diverse programming. 

The mission of the YMCA day camps is to build meaningful relationships for all. We offer a safe environment where campers and staff members alike are encouraged to try new things, where they can explore opportunities to learn and get outside their comfort zones, and where they can develop a feeling of belonging.

The 2022 hiring period officially starts after the holidays.
