    Work Camps around Fort McMurray.

    Wondering if anyone here has stayed in one before, how was the food,transportation, tips for sneaking in alcohol for the dry camps, etc...

    Thinking of going up myself soon for the Kearl Lake Project, camp Wapasu.

    Look under your chair. YOU GET A REP, AND YOU GET A REP, REPS FOR EVERYONE! If I get a rep, you get a rep, every time. Give me a link to make my life a little easier.

    If you don't give me a link and you didn't post in the thread you rep'd me in, I'm not gonna go searching for you. I'll get everyone on recharge.

    Edmonton, apparently there's a fly in/fly out option for a 14on7off shift.

    Apparently they're a notch above prison camps nowadays. I think I may be well suited for it though so I was going to give it a shot, hard to find info on what it's really like though.

    Know a guy that works up there. Hes a millwright and is getting paid close to 100k. Free food/water and accomodations as well. However, it is a fly in/fly out type position so if you have a family I dunno if its good or not.

    Yeah, heard leaving family and friends is supposed to be the hardest part of it all, easiest on guys like me who are single and young. It's the quality of food/access to alcohol that's going to make or break it though...

    I've heard about allot of people getting starting jobs @25$ an hour with up to 30 hours ot per week. I've also heard you literately do **** all up there, everyone I talk to it's the same story "The most work you do is lacing up your boots in the morning"

    What are you taking in college?

    If you have post secondary it shouldn't be too hard, though work is a bit slow ATM. I'd recommend applying as a starter Electrician or Instrument Mech/Technician though if you have college/university education. Check out the Local 488/424 list of employers and shoot them some resumes. Starting wage for a first year is usually around $21-$24 if you get a union gig. 1st year is 55% of Journeyman rate.

    Don't work the rigs.

    Wapasu is fly-in only, they search your bags before you get on the plane, they have sniffer dogs on busses from time to time.

    We had a mechanic caught with beer on his breath (he ran to Ft Mac for parts and snuck back a 6-pack) and we almost lost camp priviledges for the whole crew.

    It;s unlimited food and a full weight room, just focus on your training for your 14 in.

    Repost from another thread of mine


    I got the idea for this from AVOJAMACADA's pic threads.

    I just got back from touring a few of our company's major contracts, and thought I would share. The jobs are about 500km (320 miles) north of where I live. Typically I would ride our company plane, but I needed a truck to get around so I drove instead.

    This is the camp the guys stay in. Pretty typical up here.




    This is the room I got. Not huge but not terrible.



    Private bathroom. Just a shower tho, no tub







    Flat screen for the x-box guys (yes hdmi) and wireless internet



    There is a central kitchen. All meals are included when your company pays for your room.
    Pop and sandwich coolers




    I didn’t want to be taking a bunch of pics in the dining room like a tool, but picture a cafeteria. This night was turkey dinner, bratwursts, or meatloaf. All you can eat for the bulkers. Salad bar for the guys on a cut. All milk, juice, coffee, desserts etc included.

    I didnít wander the camp much, but snuck a few pics of the rec area

    Pool tables and the UFC on



    Movie room (nobody uses it, we get movie channel in the rooms).



    There was a gym set up. I didnít take pics of the guys on the free-weights (good way to get punched in the face up here



    Some lightweight for the ladies


    Cardio gear


    There was also dumbbells to 80lbs, 1 oly bar and plates, and a smith machine. Not overly impressive. They didnít recommend exercise outside the camp, as it is a busy time for black bears.











    more coming

    If you have post secondary it shouldn't be too hard, though work is a bit slow ATM. I'd recommend applying as a starter Electrician or Instrument Mech/Technician though if you have college/university education. Check out the Local 488/424 list of employers and shoot them some resumes. Starting wage for a first year is usually around $21-$24 if you get a union gig. 1st year is 55% of Journeyman rate.

    Don't work the rigs.
    im in the sciences, bio/exercise phys, but i have some solid experience with manual labor and i can work my ass off, just have to convince the guy doing the hiring of that. just curious why not the rigs?

    That's an executive room no? What's your position?

    I don't eat red meat, think I'd be able to get enough food?

    That was an executive room (I am an executive) but the craft rooms are the same just a little smaller with 2 rooms sharing one bathroom.

    There are usually a ton of options food-wise, usually a poultry, beef, and pork option each night, as well as vegetarian/salad bar stuff.

    Kearl lake is not bad. Electrical jobs are a bit hard to get atm (according to a friend who’s a journeyman electrician 10 yrs experience. So taking his word entirely not sure how accurate. Others would know better than me), but things will pickup end of this year. Suncor voyageur camp is the worst one.

    I too am an “executive” so the rooms are a tad better. Don’t expect a friggn 5* hotel, you’re here to work not for vacation.
    Income? Base salary is 130k/year + bonuses (very nice bonuses).
    Schedule: 10 in 4 out, charter flight in and out.

    Tips: Stay away from the drugs.

    GJDM. Mortgage free by 33 is my goal! Had a brand new house built 2 years ago.
