Counsellor Training Ensuring Safety

Prior to the start of camp, Supercamp staff receives at least 50 hours of training to ensure they are thoroughly prepared for the upcoming summer. Its focuses are mainly on supervision and safety training which include behaviour intervention, animation and injury prevention. Also, all staff must obtain their First Aid certification before the start of camp and counsellors carry their first aid kits on them at all times.
