Oh Canada

I loved the Camp atmosphere, meaning the way people at camp interact with each other, I was also amazed to see what people can create together, I enjoyed to act goofy and part take in many crazy games and to appreciate the small things of life> a smile, a meal, a good rest, a refreshing jump into the lake, the intense smell of pine trees, etc.

I loved to see the sparkle in the children's eyes, when they enjoyed an activity. That's the most honest feedback you can get for your work.

Harry Potter and villain theme day was a day to never forget.

Glad I did!

Last spring was searching for an adventure, for something more to life than a 9-5 job and felt that working outdoors with other people would be more fulfilling. I have been babysitting for almost 10 years and also I attended the same summer camp (in the USA) from age 4-13 and then I became a counselor for 3 years. On the other hand, I have very limited experience traveling or working abroad. It was time to change that! So I found campsCanada.co and became the Arts&Crafts director where I got to offer my input, but for sure I got back something that can not be taught. I grew up as a person and got the opportunity to enrich my perspectives of life. To contribute to such a great program, at a beautiful location with like-minded people was definitively a life time experience and so I am happy I decided to give it a try.

Row, row, row your boat.

My experience in Canada lat summer definitively has contributed a lot to my development as an integration aide and rowing coach. Thanks to my 8 week placement in Ontario I managed to develop stronger skills applicable to working with children and youth.
I believe this experience coupled with my passion for sports and music and easy going but hard working personality helped me to perform the daily tasks which can sometimes be demanding physically and emotionally. Specially since I was designated to a Special Needs Camp where I had to cater for special needs kids from primary school to year 9 in many different situations.
I guess my favourite part of it all was when I was acting as the rowing coach.

Camp fire, the grand finale of a great day.

I am an elementary school teacher back home, and I truly enjoy spending time with children.
That is why during the summer time I always look for opportunities that allow me to keep doing what I like the most, at the same time that I can get that little adventure sensation of going beyond your own comfort zone while traveling and meeting people from other cultural backgrounds.

During my placement in Canada I got to experience a different, yet equally effective outlook for teaching. The outgoing and enthusiastic atmosphere at camp makes possible a sometimes hard to achieve combination> Recreational education, where creativity plays an important role.

Without a doubt, one of the most enjoyable moments was when it was time to gather around the camp fire, someone would take out the guitar and we would sing along.

Going once, going twice, going...back again.

I guess it can be all resumed as an Enthusiastic and Adventurous Experience, full of passion for the outdoors. I really enjoyed the summer-time like a child, working by playing with other children. I have done this experiential learning program in Canada twice now. First in Vancouver working as an English Language Teacher & Counselor at a language camp, and last year in Toronto as a Program Area Director. I am thinking of going back again next year as I believe that I am now well suited to working for a longer season, and as I am seriously considering of taking a gap year.
I guess one of the aspects I enjoy the most is that each day at camp is an action packed day where you are able to literally feel the energy and positive vibe all around, as the environment is created by similarly motivated people who are committed to providing an unforgettable and meaningful camp experience for the young people attending Camp. For many, the experience of a life time!
