Our annual training camp was fantastic! Four days of learning, creativity, patience, and team-building just flew by; we can’t believe it is already the first day of camp! Since we are an accredited camp, we ensure that all of our staff learn:
- emergency procedures,
- first aid,
- age group characteristics,
- how to maintain mental health,
- United Church of Canada beliefs and policies, and
- how to cultivate individual and group growth.
The directors did our best not to bore them with endless PowerPoints, so we played Sardines, made slime, did a round of “speed-dating” (a.k.a. get to know you), played Jeoprady, and of course, went swimming!
Hope all of you are keeping cool during this hot spell – please encourage anyone you know under the age of 16 to register for camp! Our counselors are anxious and excited to meet your campers!
