Our Team

A top-notch camp starts with a dedicated, dynamic and well-trained team.

Our experienced staff and counsellors receive more than 50 hours of training, are certified in CPR and First Aid and have completed the YMCA Healthy Child Development program in order to ensure your children receive the highest standard of care.

All of our team members have:  

  • Been through a rigorous screening process, including a criminal background check and a thorough reference check.
  • Taken at least 50 hours of training supported by the ACQ, including workshops on child development, positive intervention, group leadership and emergency procedures, on top of following the YMCA’s own training on child protection.  
  • First Aid certification.
  • A strong desire to work with your child! Camp is more than a summer job for us—it’s a career choice!
