  • Help


    Our goal at camp is for our staff to learn, enjoy and experience just as much if not more than our campers and guests. We find that people who are willing and open to learning and being present in the task of hosting at our camp, get a very satisfying feeling from what they achieve. This is relevant to all the tasks at camp. From cooking staff to video staff to camp counsellors. No one is expected to be a top notch professional in any field. Just a willingness to learn, have fun, and a desire to please our guests and most importantly, have fun while doing so!
