Will I receive training when I arrive at camp?

All camps will host a training period before camp starts. The length of this training period does depend on the type of camp you are at and the type of role you have at camp. For example, training at a large camp for kids with special needs will be much longer than the training period at a small traditional camp. Camp training can range anywhere from 2 - 10 days, although some camps do send out training materials well ahead of camp starting. 

Some roles may also require more training than others. For example, if you're going to be working as a lifeguard or a ropes instructor you may need to do some training. This training may be facilitated by your camp, or by Camp Canada. For more information on Camp Canada training courses, check out this section here.

Camp training is often a highlight of your camp placement. Use pre-camp training time to get to know your fellow camp-mates, ask questions and learn as much as you can! If we can offer you one piece of advice about pre-camp training, it is to jump into it!
