Working at a camp is more than just summer employment! The different jobs offered will allow you to develop qualities and aptitudes that will add value to your resume, but above all to your life experience.
To become a counsellor at a certified camp, you must be at least 17 years old and have followed training offered at the camp (60 hours for resident camps and 50 hours for day camps). Holding a Counsellor-in-training (CIT) certificate is an added bonus.
Camps offer the possibility of experiencing a wide range of emotions and memorable situations while developing your sense of human relations. Being a counsellor allows you to learn to manage stress and last-minute problems while remaining resourceful, available and responsible.
