Question and Answers for Working at Camp

What sort of training do camp staff have?

Reputable camps place a high priority on staff training, often through their own programs. Information on the physical and emotional capabilities of children at different ages; sessions on leadership, behaviour management and program planning; opportunities to learn skills, practice and teach—all this and more enables camp staff to be their best for the kids.
