During our 48 days (4 sessions of 12 days) Trailblazer program, participants learn a wide range of important skills that are essential for a future camp counsellor. Through over 200 hours of various workshops, training sessions and activities, participants develop their skill sets for working with children and planning events, including creative programming, risk management, team building, and effective communication.
Participants also gain practical experience by implementing the skills and knowledge they learn in training sessions and workshops. Each participant is paired with a cabin/tent group and assists a counsellor as they lead activities and look out for the safety and well-being of campers.
What’s more, participants will have the incredible opportunity to experience a five-day canoe trip, led by our experienced and well-trained staff. All our canoe trips are centred on teamwork and community living while helping participants develop their leadership skills.
