Gain job skills while having fun at our two-week Counsellor-in-Training program designed to develop leadership skills and empower youth to take an active role in camp life. The first week is devoted to leadership workshops and skills development in all areas of camp. From learning about goal setting to childhood development, building campfires to facilitating an activity, this program is designed to help you gain confidence and build the necessary skills to be an active member of the team. You will be paired with mentors throughout your placement, so you can continue to develop your skills and learn in a hands-on environment. 

Note: You will be required to fill out a supplementary application and participate in an interview with program staff, prior to being accepted into this program. Successful completion of this program will ensure you receive an interview for future camp staff positions, but it does not guarantee employment.
