Thank you for your interest in Tanglewood's Summer counsellor program. Every summer we look for creative and outgoing girls who have a positive and "campy" attitude. Tanglewood councellors need to be independent, responsible and enjoy working with children.
Senior counsellors should possess a large amount of horse knowledge including stable management and saddlery. Daily barn experience such as horse turnout, mucking stalls, and general horse care is an asset. Girls wanting a Senior counsellor position must commit for an 8 week period (July and August).
First Aid is an asset in the summer counsellor selection process.
Girls who participate in the Tanglewood's Summer counsellor program are taught responsibility and will gain invaluable life skills and working experience. The summer counsellor positions are live in.
Senior Counsellors who are interested will also have the opportunity to show in local Hunter/Jumper shows, as well as Eventing (Horse Trials) all over Ontario.
Summer counsellor positions are limited, and unfortunately we cannot accept everyone who applies.
Senior working students get a small weekly allowance.
Please do not hesitate to call or email me if you have any questions or to arrange an interview
