Justin Gerson, GREAT LEADERSHIP TEAM
Our goal every summer is to help young people grow into responsible, well- rounded citizens by expanding their skills and knowledge within the fun and friendship of a warm camp atmosphere. At the end of their camp experience, we want campers to leave not only with fond memories and firm friendships, but also a variety of valuable life skills to lay the groundwork for their future.
By providing a strong character-building atmosphere where campers develop the capacity to set and work towards personal goals, we help them to gain an increased sense of confidence, a ‘can-do’ attitude, improved social skills and the ability to live successfully with others.
Justin Gerson B.B.A. is a long time member of Canadian Adventure Camp. His background in gymnastics originally brought him to C.A.C as a camper and then as a coach. After several years as Head Gymnastics Coach at Canadian Adventure Camp, Justin began working fulltime for camp in 2005 and was appointed Camp Director in 2008. He leads by example and fosters mutual respect which results in a motivated and engaged staff team. His love for working with children drew him to camping as a career, and the children remain his first priority. He is committed to building a positive relationship with each camper.

After 3 years in Adventure land, George moved into a Leadership position in 2019. He has a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science and a background in social care and social work settings.
George's biggest asset is his drive and ambition. His mission is to bring about positive change and smiles to the faces of children. He believes wholeheartedly in the value of camp and is intent on empowering others to maximise their potential.
At Canadian Adventure Camp, we know there is nothing more important than the health and safety of our campers, and this is always our number one priority. With this in mind, CAC staff are carefully hand-picked by our Directors, and provided with superior training to ensure they are well equipped for the job and ready for the role of a lifetime!
We pride ourselves in the high quality of our staff and the fact that many return year after year, from countries all around the globe! A good number of our staff have been campers themselves, and completed our esteemed Leader in Training program before joining the Staff Team.
