Youth Leadership Camp

For ages 12-16 

The Youth Leadership camp will provide campers with an experiential camp counsellor experience. Participants will learn some basics of first aid, pool safety and HIGH FIVE for Recreation Professionals.

Beginning on their first day, campers will dive right into shadowing one of our counsellors, observing - and eventually applying - all the knowledge and skills they have learned over the week.

Upon completion of the Youth Leadership camp, participants will receive a performance evaluation and certificate.
