REPORTS TO Camp Director

BACKGROUND

Camp Potlatch, owned and operated by Boys and Girls Clubs of South Coast BC, is a
wilderness based residential summer camp located in BC’s Howe Sound area for children
between the ages of 7 and 16. Camp Potlatch has been in operation for over 70 years with the
philosophy of providing quality summer experiences to all children, including those from low-
income families. Successful camp staff candidates will require a criminal record check and must
provide references. All spring, summer and fall staff live and work on site, which is located 45
minutes away from downtown Vancouver. Seasonal contracts range from 10 weeks to six
months.

OVERVIEW

Assistant Summer Camp Registrar (based at our Vancouver camp office at the Fraserview Club)

Reporting directly to the Camp Registrar, the Assistant Summer Camp Registrar is responsible
for all aspects of registration, including but not limited to the distribution of camp brochures,
answering parent inquiries, registering campers in CampBrain, preparing reports (cabins,
transportation, food allergies, etc.), and processing payments.

A high degree of organization and the ability to multi-task and meet deadlines is required for
this position. Being the frontline staff for camper registration, the Assistant Summer Camp
Registrar works directly with parents in the negotiation of fees. The negotiating process is a
balance between cost recovery and making camp affordable for all children. Excellent customer
service is therefore required.

The Assistant Summer Camp Registrar generally works Monday to Friday at the camp office in
South Vancouver. Once camp commences, however, the Registrar will also be responsible for
assisting with transportation days, which requires working four Saturdays during the summer,
sometimes at different sites.

REQUIREMENTS

Applicant must be over 18 years of age and demonstrate:

  • Clean Criminal Reference Check with vulnerable sector search
  • Current BC Drivers License with clean record, Class 4 preferred
  • Strong command of the Microsoft Office suite
  • A high degree of professionalism when talking to clients, both in person and on the phone
  • Knowledge of the CampBrain registration system is considered an asset
  • Flexibility, teamwork, communitcation, safety consciousness, and a drive to finish all jobs

are the keys to success in this position

CLOSING DATE: April 17, 2017.
