OVERVIEW

VISTO Performing Arts Camp will allow students to engage in weekly camp experiences.

Camp Counsellors will be passionate about their faith, each other and eager to make a difference in young people. Comprehensive VISTO training will allow everyone the opportunity to learn more about themselves and the world around them while growing individually and as a team. Through this leadership opportunity with small groups of young people ages 8-16 years, Camp Counsellors will facilitate conversations and learning about character and faith. Counsellors will create dynamic experiences and participate in high energy activities to engage and encourage everyone. Participation in rehearsals and activities is required. This role requires enthusiasm, stamina and a willingness to grow in faith and leadership.

WHO WE ARE
