It is with sincerest regret that I tell you we have decided to cancel our on site summer season at Camp Widjiitiwin. This was a very difficult decision. So much of what we do at camp is based on doing camp together. We believe it would compromise our vision to do camp in limited ways with PPE and physical distancing. Here is the link to the letter we sent our camp families, staff, donors and Ignite partners.
Thank you for your interest in working at Camp Widjiitiwin for the summer of 2020. At Widji we are focusing on impacting the world through Camp Widjiitiwin by impacting campers and families through changed lives, refocused on Christ and the gospel; impacting the Scarborough, Hamilton, Guelph, Etobicoke and North York communities by positive lifestyle impact on campers through specialized partnership weeks; and impacting churches, neighbourhoods and schools through staff dedicated to living out their faith in front of the campers and at home.
We serve a great God and as He continues to go ahead of us we will accomplish great things for His Kingdom. Our mission is based on 2 Corinthians 5:20; “Camp Widjiitiwin exists to be an ambassador for Christ to children and youth through compelling camp community experiences focused on demonstrating the gospel message through the Word of God, positive relationships and creative interactions”.
We seek staff with a desire to Serve Christ and Work Hard. These are the priorities in the selection of staff. As a result of the large number of applications for a limited number of positions, we are not able to hire everyone who applies. NOTE: you must be 15 years old before the start of the summer (July 1st) to be eligible to apply for summer staff. Sorry if this disqualifies you, but we have a great leadership program you can check out on our website here.
The theme for 2020 is Narnia! This flexible theme allows for a variety of fantastical ideas for theme days from week to week.
Please pray that staffing will be accomplished according to God’s purpose and plan for all our lives as for the ministry here. If that’s the kind of summer you’re looking for please read carefully through each of page links below. Once you’re ready, click the “Apply Online” button.

Widjiitiwin – the way camp was meant to be… relational, central, natural, and reaching out, a loving community focused on Christ. It’s like coming home, it’s my camp!
