  • Working at camp allowed me to not only make friends and have fun, but to build my leadership skills, and find a passion for working with kids!

    Female Counsellor for 4/5 year olds
  • Had never swim instructed before and I thought it was going to be difficult, but the head staff were helpful, the other staff were extremely fun, and the kids were amazing. Overall my summer at green acres gave me more confidence and I made great friends.

    Female swim instructor
  • The staff was extremely welcoming and the kids were very fun to work with. It was better then i expected because i met people that i now consider my best friends, gained experience with kids which later got me a job, and was overall a great experience.

    Female counsellor All-Star Sports Camp
  • I made great friends and learned many leadership and child caring qualities I wouldn't have usually learned. It was one of the most fun summers I have had and I am dreading going to work behind a desk.

    Female counsellor for 4 year olds
  • I grew so much as a person. I was given so many more responsibilities, my campers trusted me with so much and we genuinely bonded so much in such a short period of time which was surprising. It also pushed me out of my comfort zone a lot and I believe I'm better because of camp.

    Female counsellor for 4/5 year olds
  • I really enjoyed gaining more leadership experience because it makes me more confident in myself and I love how easy it was to make friends and how approachable everyone was and how Green Acres always felt like home

    Male counsellor - 6/7 year olds
  • It was a great experience, I had fun teaching the campers every week. The specialty team felt close and the friends I made at camp were all great people to be around

    Female instructor/specialist
  • This past summer was my best summer yet, by far. My unit was extremely tight-knit and my Head Staff gave me a lot of opportunities to grow and take on new challenges. My campers also made me feel welcome and appreciated, which made me happy to come to camp every day

    Male counsellor for 8-9 year olds
  • Green Acres was the best job I've ever had! I really enjoyed the camp and felt really valued each step of the way!

    Female counsellor for 10/11 year olds
