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.  

Successful participants receive credit for 15+ volunteer hours and a personalized volunteer placement letter, as well as Safeguard certification.   

All camps are bilingual, and daily lunches are included with the cost of your camp.
