Join the Elite Camps team this summer!

Being a summer camp staff member at Hoop Dreams is one of the most valuable and rewarding jobs you’ll ever have. There are numerous benefits including but not limited to; learning new skills and gaining experience, working outside in the beautiful South Bruce Peninsula, getting paid to have fun, connecting with youth, meeting new lifelong friends, personal growth through specialized leadership training, and of course, the fantastic memories.

One thing that sets us apart from other organizations is our commitment to leadership development. Each staff member will be assigned a mentor that will provide ongoing opportunities for the staff member to achieve personal growth throughout the summer. You will use your game plan tool to identify potential areas for growth and create a roadmap for success. Whatever it is you want to get better at, we will help you do it.

Annually the Director of the Elite Camps Hoop Dreams Program interviews hundreds of applicants in order to find, what we feel are, the most caring and talented individuals with a passion for working and teaching children in a summer basketball camp community.
