The Jr. Counsellor Program helps teens become active leaders in their community and club.   Jr. Counsellors will complete two 8 hour days of training on June 11 & 12, 2022, followed by a weekend- long training at Camp Alexo June 24-26, 2022.

The Jr. Counsellor program is designed to give youth the skills they need to successfully work with younger children in a camp setting.  With an emphasis on hands- on learning, youth will learn conflict resolution skills; problem solving-skills; and leadership skills.

After the training sessions, Jr. Counsellors will attend Camp Alexo for 1-2 weeks as a volunteer counselor where they will be able to put those skills to work, assisting in implementing a program for children aged 7-12.  Youth will be mentored by an experienced staff team and receive daily feedback on their progress.  The skills learned in this course will use among all aspects of their development.
