I loved working at Camp Couchiching! Camp has allowed me to embrace the wonders of the outdoors, acquire new skills, and most importantly, boost my confidence which has helped me build the unbreakable friendships I still have today.

You couldn't find a better location or group of people. I can really feel that they listen to you, consider your safety and ensure that there is lots of fun in the midst of the busy pace. I learned to manage priorities, not get caught up in the small stuff and when working hard it feels like you're hardly working (at times- other times it feels tiring). Lots of steps in each day so you keep really fit as well! The good friends make it fun.

Working at Camp Couchiching has been one of the best summer's of my life. The staff team as a whole really works together to create the "camp bubble" and allow every camper to have a true camp experience.
