Summer Staff Team 2016
Our 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:
Meet Our Team:
"I have been coming to Sasamat for as long as I can remember. I love the atmosphere at camp, from the friendly counsellors to the splashing of the lake"
"This is my second summer working at Sasamat. I have a passion for working with children and youth, teaching, sailing, swimming, and skiing throughout the year."
Luke McAndless Davies
"I have worked at Sasamat for 3 years and have loved every minute of it! When not at camp, I go to UBC and study music education in the hopes of becoming a high school music teacher. See you at camp!"
"In my spare time I like to run and write. I am a long-distance runner running 5-10k's! I train with the Coquitlam Cheetahs Track Club and I also run for the UVic Vikes track team, where I study writing."
"This is my second summer at Sasamat. I love tie dye and campfire songs. I also love swimming but hate getting my hair wet. Dogs are the best and so are sunny days."
"This is my first year at Sasamat! I love camping and canoeing, but when I'm not doing those things, I am studying in the Faculty of Arts at UBC and preparing to become a lawyer!"
"I've loved summer camps since I was a kid. I adore the water and enjoy exploring the woods. My passion is theatre and I'll be studying acting next year at UBC. I also like writing and improv. I'm so excited to work at such a beautiful place this summer!"
"I love to swim and kayak, but my favourite activity by far is the climbing wall. My favourite food is chocolate cake. In my free time, I enjoy hiking and driving."
"This is my second year working here, and I'm looking forward to another amazing summer!"
"I love sun, friends, fun, the outdoors, and adventure! That makes camp the perfect place for me. When I'm not lifeguarding, I'll be studying sciences at UBC or on the slopes of the local ski mountain."
"I love being in the outdoors, which is one reason why I love camp. I enjoy going camping in the forest as well as going on day hikes. I have been a leader at camp for almost 5 years."
"I've worked at camp for 5 years. I'm passionate about the outdoors as well as educating children. Camp is an amalgamation of the two where I am able to teach children in the outdoors."
