The majority of our counsellors are university and college students (some secondary school students are hired each year, as well). We also employ teachers who want to create an impact in the summer months, as well as graduates of teachers colleges across Ontario. A recent Vulnerable Sector Police Check is mandatory for all counsellors. There will be at least one counsellor present at each camp location with their First Aid certification at all times.
