Want to be a summer camp counsellor in the future? Are you looking to gain the skills and knowledge necessary that will assist you in your development to become a future Gryphon Counsellor?  The Counsellor In Training Program has experiential learning and resources to help your development.

Did you miss out on attending this summer? 2019 Gryphons Summer Camp Registration opens February 4th @ 5:30am

Are you interested in working as a Gryphon Summer Camp Counsellor in the future (maybe next summer)? Want to build camp skills so you are prepared and have the necessary “tools” to be a great counsellor?  The Counsellor-In-Training program is a mixture of workshops and in-camp experiences that will allow you to grow and be prepared to be a counsellor at Gryphon Summer Camps in the future.  This program will be offered twice during the summer and you must be dedicated and ready to commit for the full experience.   

During the workshop week you will go through camp training, so you will have the skills necessary to work with the campers and understand Gryphon Camp policies.  Then for three weeks, you will be a counsellor and work on a team while program planning and facilitating activities. The Director will follow up with you weekly with a Wednesday morning workshop to strengthen your skills and give you more “tools”.  This program is ideal for those that are not quite of age but wish to be a counsellor in the near future. 

The Gryphons Activity Camp Director along with the Active Kids Coordinator, work together closely to create a strong support structure for each individual.  Our senior camp leadership team are positive role models that will always be close by to assist and encourage self-development. Counsellor-in-Training participants will be seen as staff members and be evaluated for future employment.
