What else can I expect?Hard work, a significant time investment before camp, crowd control, chore supervision, operating boot camps at 6 am, heavy competition, practising your conflict resolution skills, sleep deprivation, difficult questions, freezing water and character development.
How much does it cost?Counselling is free! You are only responsible for your travel costs to and from camp.

- If you are a brother you may be asked to prepare a short talk (about 10 minutes) to present during the evening program.
- You will receive guidelines and training materials that you must read prior to attending the counsellor training.
- Counsellors MUST attend the pre-camp training which will begin the evening of Sunday, August 5th.
