Ghost River Rediscovery
Ghost River Rediscovery Society is a non-profit organization that offers outdoor and cultural education programs based on Aboriginal traditions and values. They are recognized for running quality programs, within the Ghost area of the mountains, that promote the rediscovery of tradition and the development of healthy, sustainable lifestyles among children and youth.
Currently they are looking for volunteers to camp sit on days where there are no camps running, often weekends or mid week days. I believe they will have someone drive you out there and bring you back as well. Basically you and 1 other person are there to ensure that no one enters the camp; you get to go out to the camp area, which is very rustic and traditional, and get some time to relax out in the mountains away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It's a really neat experience which could lead to possible opportunities with the company also. If you are interested in this as well as other volunteer positions please visit the website below or call their office at (403)270-9351 and ask to speak with Norma.
If you are interested in camp sitting please call the Ghost River Rediscovery office as soon as possible so they are able to organize all of the details with you.
