Title: The Importance of Counselors at a Coed Adventure Camp


1
THE IMPORTANCE OF
AT A COED ADVENTURE CAMP
2
(No Transcript)
3
Summer camp counselors prove that you never can
get too old for camp. Many of the best counselors
are former campers who are ready to take on a
leadership role.
4
Although counselors are known for their wacky
antics such as initiating a spontaneous water
fight in the lake, they must also quickly know
how to get serious when a situation requires a
level head.
5
From wiping those first day tears to helping kids
conquer their fears, here are just a few reasons
why camp counselors are vital to creating an
idyllic summer experience.
6
  • SOOTHE HOMESICKNESS

7
Although kids quickly adjust to their new camp
environment, those first few days can be a little
rocky for younger campers.
8
Since counselors share cabins with new campers,
they are in the perfect place at the right time
to calm those nighttime feelings of homesickness.
9
They also know how to plan so many activities
during the day and evening cabin time that most
kids dont have a chance to truly get homesick.
10
  • INSPIRE KIDS TO BE COURAGEOUS

11
Coed adventure camps are designed to inspire kids
to conquer their fears, and camp counselors know
exactly when a kid could use a little extra nudge.
12
Whether they are shouting words of encouragement
during a competition or celebrating a campers
first time up on the water skis
13
they make kids feel capable of making great
leaps with their independence.
14
Having the support of a camp counselor who is
trained in first aid and CPR also gives kids
confidence that they will be safe performing a
new skill or activity.
15
  • TEACH KIDS HOW TO UNPLUG

16
During the school year, many kids get caught up
in technology that causes them to forget how to
have fun without their favorite electronic device.
17
At camp, counselors help kids find ways to spend
their time doing wholesome outdoor activities
that increase their physical fitness.
18
They constantly have a list of activities running
through their head to keep kids excited.
19
And, when there is an unexpected change in the
weather, a rainy day can be turned quickly into a
fun bonding experience among cabin mates.
20
  • GIVE CAMPERS A POSITIVE ROLE MODEL

21
Camp counselors are older, yet their love for
spending time outdoors allows them to retain that
cool factor kids need when they are looking for a
role model.
22
Naturally, conflicts can happen when a group of
kids are together. Counselors are always there to
help youngsters learn how to resolve issues
peacefully.
23
They are also positive role models of how to take
on something new and exciting such as soaring
through the air on a trampoline in a safe and
responsible manner.
24
At first glance, it looks as if camp counselors
are just having fun. After all, no one can deny
that spending a work day on the lake is ideal.
25
Yet, it is important to remember that beneath all
the excitement, camp counselors are looking after
the safety and happiness of every kid in their
group.
26
Without trained counselors, there simply wouldnt
be camp since they shape every moment of each
campers experience.
27
Canadian Adventure Camp is a coed overnight
summer camp for kids located on a beautiful
private island in the wilderness lakes region of
Temagami in Ontario.
28
Founded in 1975, it provides acclaimed programs
to children from around the world!
