How much experience do I need?

If you’re not the best in the world at your activity, there’s no need to worry - you’ll be teaching kids who are just there to have fun, most will even be complete beginners. You’ll be fully trained before your campers arrive, and you’ll be supported by the other counsellors at your camp.

Do I need to bring equipment?

Some camps will want you to bring equipment for certain activities, but this will likely only be in the form of clothes and personal gear, but they’ll let you know this once you’re hired. Most often, you won’t have to bring any specialist equipment, with Canadian summer camps being equipped with state of the art facilities to develop the campers’ skills, as well as yours.

Why should I be an activity specialist instead of a general counsellor?

Most importantly, being an activity specialist gives you the opportunity to develop your skills in an area that you are passionate about, getting experience that’s not available anywhere else. Whilst you’ll be teaching your activity 5 or 6 periods a day, you’ll generally have more time off, with many specialists staying overnight with other specialists rather than campers. You’ll also get to know the whole camp, spending your days seeing different groups of campers into the activity and seeing them grow both in the skill and as people.
