In addition to counselling and program staff, we have a number of unique summer employment opportunities in 2020. See below for more information:


Our Lead Cook will be responsible for the overall operation of our kitchen, which prepares 3 meals and 2 snacks a day for 60-90 people of all ages. This includes menu planning, purchasing, use & care of kitchen equipment, meal preparation, serving, clean-up, and oversight of food safety protocols.


This is a challenging and rewarding position which requires strong culinary skills, excellent organizational, planning, problem solving and time management skills, the ability to develop and lead a small team, and an ability to work positively and collaboratively within a diverse community.


In return, the position offers a unique opportunity to work as part of a vibrant and energetic team, to be part of a caring community, and to live in close connection with nature.


In May and June, our Environmental Education Lead will lead the development of an Environmental Education curriculum for use in our summer camping program. This will involve researching existing resources and programs, developing key educational outcomes, creating a detailed written program plan, and orienting our summer staff to the program. In July and August, the EE Lead will lead implementation of the program under the direction of our summer director, and in collaboration with our other program leads. The EE Lead will also prepare a written evaluation of program outcomes to assist in ongoing program development.

This position requires a keen sense of curiosity, a love of the outdoors, an ability to work to deadlines independently, strong self-directed learning skills,  and an ability to work collaboratively with a diverse team.


Formal training and/or experience in the areas of teaching, program or curriculum development, environmental or life sciences, knowledge translation, outdoor education, or related fields is preferred.


Our Community Outreach Liaison will be responsible for developing and managing collaborative relationships between Kidston and our community partners, for supporting ongoing program development and evaluation, and for promoting our programs throughout the community.


The work of the Community Outreach Liaison will primarily happen off-site and will be based in HRM and/or Truro, but may include some direct participation in our camping programs at key times.
