Counsellors in Training

Develop leadership and interpersonal skills in our Counsellors in Training camps.

Camp Hours 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Our Counsellors in Training Camp is perfect for youth between the ages of 15 and 17. It focuses on building confidence and developing teamwork and leadership abilities. Through multiple workshops on topics such as communication, group facilitation, program planning and preparedness, along with interactive debrief sessions, participants gain the skills to become future Gee-Gees counsellors.   

Volunteering is a major component. Youth in this camp are placed in ongoing Gee-Gees camps programs and matched with counsellors to get hands-on work experience within a large team setting. Counsellors in training can facilitate activities, set up programs, and support Gee-Gees campers in their experience with us.  

Campers leave with:  

  • Those enrolled in session 1 will receive a Safeguard Certification and those enrolled in session 2 will receive high five certification training.  

  • Job readiness skills  

  • Personalized Volunteer placement letter: This will consist of a signed document that mentions the tasks that participants have accomplished in this program; any certifications obtained as well as official acknowledgment of the completion of 15+ volunteer hours within our programs.

  • Understand various nuances of program planning and group facilitation.  

  • Develop overall communication techniques and basic child-care practices  

  • Will facilitate an activity in their matched camp, set up programs, and support Gee-Gees campers in their experience with us.
