The lifeblood of Olympia is its staff. From senior staff to counsellors,
everyone working at Olympia is there to ensure the kids have a fantastic summer!
Our staff are athletically oriented high school seniors, college or university students who are sensitive, respectful and take a personal interest in each camper. They demonstrate fairness, firmness and a fun-loving attitude in carrying out their challenging responsibilities.
Staff are chosen for their ability to listen and respond to campers’ needs in order to provide a physically and emotionally safe environment to learn positive attitudes, skills and social behaviours.
They model and impart Olympia’s values of caring, co-operation, enthusiasm, integrity, self-leadership, risktaking and teamwork. Instructors are highly qualified in all areas of safety and instructional aspects of their sport/activity. They receive extensive training during staff orientation, with further coaching and supervision from our Unit Leaders and Directors throughout the summer.
Counsellors spend the first afternoon helping campers GET TO KNOW THE OTHER CAMPERS in their cabin by playing all kinds of fun and unusual games.
Our dedicated and fun loving counsellors, who are trained in the philosophy and core values of OLYMPIA’S “LET THE JOURNEY BEGIN” LIFE SKILLS TRAINING PROGRAM share their gifts to make a difference in the lives of their campers to ensure that the whole camp experience is FUN, SAFE AND SUCCESSFUL.
