Join the Fun in a Summer Position at the Parks & Recreation Department!

Do you love being outside during the summer and have an energetic and engaging can-do spirit? Then the City of Victoria Parks & Recreation Department has a job for you!

Each year, the City of Victoria's Parks & Recreation Department hires leaders that shine at summer programs and activities. These leaders work hard to brighten the summers of Victoria's youngest community members as they guide them through some of the hottest camps around — Summer Playground Camp, Wonders of Wassermann Camp, and others!

Sound like something that may interest you or someone you know? Then check out our jobs for Summer Camp Director and Summer Camp Leaders!

The Summer Camp Director plans, organizes, and leads activities for children ages 4-12 at City Parks around Victoria while the Summer Camp Leaders' primary responsibilities are to supervise, engage and direct large groups of children while providing a fun, safe, and inclusive outdoor environment.

All of these positions are ideal for aspiring educators to get memorable work experience but they are also for anyone that loves kids, learning something new, or leading our awesome campers in cool games and activities.
