Sprout and Try-Out Programs

Ages 5-7

This three day camp is a wonderful introduction to camp life. Campers fill their days with crafts, nature activities, swimming, games, Bible stories, and campfire songs. Each child is busy all day long and goes to bed happy and tired. This is a ‘Try-Out” camp, meaning that we introduce campers to a shortened version of the camp week. Campers will attempt as many of the camp activities as the schedule permits within their two full days at camp. Drop off and pick-up for this camp will be specified closer to the date.

Leader In Training (LIT) Programs

Ages 16-17

The Leader in Training program is anchored by sessions and activities to develop the individual’s leadership skills. With 2 weeks of learning together, LITs are then invited back to join us for a minimum of 2 other weeks to assist with counselling, kitchen, maintenance, or another support role, learning about camp to prepare them for joining us on staff next summer!

There will be sessions on communication, leadership styles, group dynamics, and conflict resolution. All LITs will also learn skills such as games and songs, leading in front of large groups, and program development. Each program participant will spend time under the supervision of a Camp Kintail staff member in a camper cabin, learning how to be a counsellor. This will take place after sessions on child development, bullying, child abuse, and camper communication. Through their time in cabins or working with the support staff, the LITs will participate in check-ins and sessions with the other LITs. They will lead a FLASH (Faith, Learning, and Sharing) session, run a campfire, prepare morning Chapel, lead a morning activity, and assist the cabin counsellors. Drop off and pick-up for this camp will be specified closer to the date. A perfect gateway into becoming a FANTASTIC Camp Kintail Staff or to develop strong leadership skills for the future!

Volunteers Of Kintail (VOK) Programs

Ages 14-17

Work towards your academic volunteer service hours while still creating fun summer memories with us at Camp Kintail! While some of the day is dedicated to work projects – such as site maintenance on the hiking trail or adding new stones along a pathway to help with erosion, the other portion of the day is spent in classic camp activities such as high ropes and waterfront! These camps run from Sunday afternoon to Friday afternoon. What’s the best part? These volunteer weeks offer participants the chance to receive 20 service hours, help improve the site, all while still participating in classic camp activities. Who said you can’t have fun while you work?
