The W-CSD program is a separate, alternative program that will run concurrently with our regular Counsellor Skills Development program in August. The W-CSD program will focus more intensively on skills in an out-trip context. 

This program is open to all candidates, but is recommended for those who have achieved their Bronze Cross and offers a more intense wilderness experience. The program includes ORCA Tripping Level 1 certification within the framework of a 3-day trip as well as a 7-day canoe trip to hone and apply these skills. In addition, candidates are offered certification in Standard First Aid. The program is designed to build confidence and motivate the participants in gaining the hard skills and discipline needed to become effective leaders and future staff members. Participants will also experience the group dynamics needed for achieving common goals and model staff roles within a camp environment. Time will also be made for recreational and coordinated programming with other leadership programs.

Applicants must be 15-16 years old. Previous camp experience will benefit applicants.

Campers must apply for acceptance into this program by completing a leadership application.
