All our staff are Queen’s University students and have a minimum of Standard First Aid with CPR C, and our lifeguards all possess National Lifeguard Service (NLS) certification from the Lifesaving Society of Canada. Counsellors and staff are constantly working hard to ensure a safe and fun camp experience for our campers.

He also played for over 10 years in a steel pan band that went on biennial summer tours, allowing him to see most of Europe on over 5 band tours.|

When she is not playing rugby for Queen’s, you can find her on a stand-up paddle board, watching funny animal videos or petting the nearest dog. She is ecstatic to take her three years of camp counsellor experience to Eco-Adventure Camp and explore the biological diversity that Elbow Lake has to offer.|
|James (Counsellor)||James is a second year Biology student at Queen’s University and this will be his fifth year working at summer camps.
