We love kids and we love this place. Most of our staff have been raised at Camp Huron, some attending themselves since they were six years old. Staff unanimously want to give their young charges the same fun, life-changing experience they were given.
Our staff are chosen for their experience, qualifications, sensitivity and commitment to making each camper’s stay a memorable one. They begin the season with a week of intensive training, and are supervised by a senior leadership team with experience and education in such fields as outdoor recreation, theology, social work and child-care.
Our Leader in Training Program (LIT) offers teens an opportunity to become leaders with an emphasis on service. The program gives Camp Huron a wonderful pool of young people from which to choose counsellors. The community is enriched by active, knowledgeable and faithful young leaders!
The two-year Leader in Training program builds leadership skills and experience that build a very strong staff team. During the first year, LIT campers learn more about camp life in an “outdoor classroom”, extending to a week-long hike in Bruce Peninsula Provincial Park. The second year builds on the Year 1 LIT experience. The development of skills in camp counselling include working with children, behaviour management, cabin group activities, communication, leadership theory and small group dynamics, and culminates in a week-long placement that can be used for community service hours.
While we do not guarantee our LIT grads a job we have learned that in raising our own we are able to hire an excellent group of young staff members for the two-month summer season who go on to become leaders year-round in their schools, communities, churches and beyond!
