Job Description

The Vancouver Ultimate League is seeking several energetic and organized individuals to be responsible for delivering our Youth Camp programs for elementary school-aged children during the Spring and Summer in Vancouver. The Instructors will organize, mentor, and lead the Spring Day Camps and Summer Day Camps to deliver quality ultimate programs for elementary school-aged students.
