Hope you had a fantastic weekend.
I’m sure you all had the pleasure of meeting Carla (Gypsy), the Program Coordinator at the Tim Horton’s Kananaskis Camp during training.
Carla is very keen to diversify the staff working at the camp this summer and thought it might be useful for us to circulate the job description. Feel free to share it with any youth (18+)you think might be a good fit (I’m thinking in particular any youth who were summer staff/youth workers last year). The job description, as well as a ‘day in the life of a counsellor’ is attached. There is an online application process but Carla is happy for people to get in touch with her directly, so she can support them through the application process. Her email is email@example.com

Conductors work as members of two or three person train crews and perform duties associated with the movement of trains, rail cars, and locomotives in rail yards and on the road. They coordinate the assembly of trains and execute any ground work outside the locomotive cab while in the yard or en-route (ex: operating track switches, picking up rail cars, making emergency repairs, etc.).

Railroading is a 24/7 business and that doesn’t scare you; you enjoy working different shifts and being outdoors.
Most importantly, you walk the talk when it comes to safety. With such big equipment comes even bigger responsibility, and you can be counted on to keep yourself and those around you safe.
