The Position

  • You need to be a strong Chef who doesn't mind working 1 week of nights and 1 week of day shifts.
  • We need Chefs who can hold their own, who wont break a sweat working a shift on their own in the Kitchen. Our camp has an average of 100 people on site. This sounds scary but with the support of a great manager you can impress out clients.
