“When I was too old to be a camper and had to choose to be a counsellor in training (CIT) or not go to camp, I automatically chose to become a CIT... I come back to work at Camp Tournesol year after year because I have developed friendships with all the other counsellors along with getting to see the same kids come back, see them grow and see their French improve.” – Counsellor at Camp Tournesol.
Teen camps offer teenaged children the opportunity to spend time outdoors, offering structured activities that extend learning throughout the summer. Keep your teen active and engaged with a camp that includes many different activities such as swimming, canoeing and team sports like volleyball, or help them develop an interest or skill in one particular area.
Adventure camps, wilderness camps and paintball camps are popular options for teens. High school students looking for fun, safe ways to spend the summer with their friends are exposed to new, unique activities. At camp teenagers can develop leadership skills and explore new opportunities.
There are a number of camps that offer training for counsellors, providing a number of leadership opportunities for young adults. If your teenager is considering working this summer, why not check out summer camp jobs?
