Summer Job Opportunities:
The Leadership Team and Board of Directors of Between Friends has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person summer programming: Camp Bonaventure, Adventurers (both Day Trippers and Vacationers), Camp Fun’zAmust and Adult W.E.S.O.A.R!, as well as our I.C.A.N! Programming for 2020. Even if by summer, we are allowed to run programs, the hygiene, sanitizing and safety precautions, as well as the physical distancing necessary to offer safe environments throughout all of our programming for the summer, would be extremely difficult for you and for us to manage. We have not made this decision lightly and we are heartbroken that the current crisis that our world, country and city face, is having this impact.
We have weighed our options carefully, following updates from the World Health Organization (WHO), all three levels of government and public health experts. Calgary has not yet reached the peak of this pandemic and given the City of Calgary’s recent announcement to cancel all public events until the end of June, the decision is now clear. That also means that our 2019 Awards & AGM will be cancelled until further notice.
We work with a vulnerable population, many of whom are immunocompromised and the risk to their health is just too great. We cannot put them at risk and we cannot put you at risk. We understand how disappointing this decision will be for all of you. We know that you were ready and eager to assist with our 2020 programming. It is that energy that always makes our programming such an amazing success.
For those of you who were already agreed to be our summer staff, we thank you for your ongoing commitment to Between Friends. We are sorry that we are not in a position to hire you this year. For those of you who had interviews or submitted applications, we are sorry we don’t get to work together this summer. We look forward to a time when we can get back to Camp Bonaventure, Fun’zAmust, W.E.S.O.A.R! and all of our other programs.
Stay healthy & safe!
Your Between Friends Leadership Team and Board of Directors
