To provide all campers with a safe, quality camping experience, we provide all staff with extensive training prior to each season. Summer staff and Outdoor Centre staff arrive ten days prior to train for their respective roles. This intensive training covers emergency preparedness, child development, activity-specific skills training, homesickness preparedness, program planning, and YMCA Human Resources policies and procedures including YMCA Child Protection. In addition, senior staff spend a five day intensive canoe trip learning tripping skills.
