Camp Chef - Blue Fox Wilderness Camp : sault ste. marie, Ontario
Closing Date: 3/31/2020
Location: Iron Bridge
Company: Blind River Employment Solutions
Job Type: Full Time - Temps plein
We are looking to hire a full-time camp chef to help run Blue Fox Camp, a fly-in trout fishing lodge located in the Algoma Highlands north of Blind River, ON (see www.bluefoxcamp.com). The main requirements of the job are to provide three meals daily to our American Plan clients at designated times, manage the cookhouse, keep an ongoing food inventory, and help coordinate the food shipments. Secondary responsibilities will be to help clean and maintain guest cabins, and help with general camp organization. Client satisfaction is paramount in this industry and only applicants that understand what it takes to provide first rate service will be considered. The camp is a fly-in destination and your flight in and out will be provided along with room and board.
Who we`re looking for:
We`ve employed a lot of people at Blue Fox Camp and the ones that tend to work out are easy-going, self-motivated, independent, hardworking, and possess a lot of common sense. In addition, we need someone who enjoys cooking and will help to provide a friendly, inviting cookhouse for our guests to enjoy.
If you have these qualities and enjoy fishing, the outdoors, working with people and gaining a ton of outdoor and people experience, please contact Brad at the email address listed below.
The primary responsibility of the applicant will be to ensure that our cookhouse runs smoothly on a daily basis and that our clients are well taken care of. We`ll have a 7-day rotational menu planned out that can be modified by the cook if required. A typical day would include:
1)Cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner for groups of 2-14 clients
2)Breakfast is typically served at 7-8 am, lunch at noon and dinner at 5-8, depending on client preference
3)Meal prep and clean up (dishes will be aided by camp staff)
4)Maintaining cookhouse cleanliness
5)Updating food inventory lists and coordinating food shipments
6)Help develop meal plans
7)Coordinate and provide shore lunch (if time permits)
8)Help camp staff ensure that the guest cabins and shower house/sauna are clean.
9)Coordinate incoming and outgoing flights
10)Invoice clients on departure and collect funds if needed.
It`s a lot of work, but there is also time to enjoy fishing and the area around Blue Fox Camp.
The contract would be consistent with other camps which would be set at $784.00/week with room and board included. In addition to that, any tips from guests are completely your own. Given the short duration of the season, time off or camp leave will be negotiated on an individual basis. In addition, bonuses may apply to staff that have exceptional performance records and last the duration of the season.
The camp is open from May to July (the peak trout fishing season). However, if an employee works out, we`d look into keeping them on for the full season which would terminate in October after the hunting season.
1. Previous experience in the service industry and running a kitchen
2. Fishing license and Canadian boating card
3. Wilderness first aid course
4. Outdoor experience (camping, fishing, canoeing, previous work in related fields)
5. General knowledge of camp operations and propane systems are a plus
