From our youngest campers to our most experienced mentors, we encourage everyone to bring forward, in their unique way, an effort of leadership that encompasses kindness, helpfulness, respect, and trust. Successful Wild Life Camp leaders are motivated individuals who seek out ways to contribute, patient and caring youth who enjoy helping others, positive role models who lead by example, and fun, energetic people who bring ideas & creativity.
How our Leadership Stream works:
We offer our Leadership Stream to older campers and bright young leaders who want to keep the fun of camp going and put forward a meaningful effort of leadership to our camp community.
‘Junior Camper Leader’ (completed grade 6) is our informal introduction, available to registered campers heading into grade 7. Campers can indicate at camp that they would like to take on more opportunities to support our camp community. To participate, parents follow our regular registration process for a spot in our general sessions.
‘Camper Leader’ (completed grade 7) is our official role for registered campers heading into grade 8. Older campers will take on more opportunities to support younger campers, assist leaders and facilitators, and help in other areas of camp. To participate, parents follow our regular registration process for a spot in our general sessions.
‘Volunteer Leader’ (completed grade 8) is an opportunity most commonly available to previous leadership stream participants heading into grade 9 or above. To participate, contact camp directly indicating your interest in volunteering. The camp directors will assess your request and respond regarding availability, space is very limited.
Application is required for those interested in volunteering who have not participated in our leadership stream previously – details are below.
