Summer Staff Team 2016 

Staff_1.JPGOur summer staff vary in age from 18 to 30 and their experience ranges from our own Leadership and C.I.T. grads to long-time veterans of camping and back-country tripping, but all of them bring their skills, their energy and their hearts to providing a great experience for all of our campers. Our returning staff rate is normally above 80%, so parents and campers can be assured of a highly knowledgeable and experienced staff team.

While qualifications and certifications differ for various camp positions, our general staff team must have, at minimum:

  • Standard First Aid and CPR-C
  • RCA BC Basic/Advanced Tandem Canoeing
  • One week of intensive on site staff training with sessions ranging from effective group management, conflict resolution and anti-bullying, "sticky situations", on-site safety protocols and more.
