ASUS Camps prides itself each year in creating and fostering an amazing team of camp counsellors! Our staff of Twelve dedicates itself to ensure each camper has an inclusive, accessible, and incredible experience. Each counsellor brings something unique to the table to create an exciting experience at ASUS Camps; in fact, all of our counsellors attended Queen’s University this past year as students! We also have counsellors from all over Canada, and even somewhere closer to home, including Toronto and Ottawa. All staff are required to have a valid, completed Police Check, as well as their Standard First Aid and CPR-C training. Along with this training, the staff at ASUS Camps spends two wonderful weeks prior to the start of camp together, in which each staff is taught everything they need to ensure that campers have a safe and super time at ASUS Camps! We can’t wait for the camp fun to begin!
Caitlin is a 4th year Health Studies student at Queen’s! Last year, she had so much fun as a 1:1 Counsellor that she came back as the Program Director. In the summer, you can find her playing soccer outside or going for bike rides on Wolfe Island. Her favourite camp activities are all the arts and crafts, water day and everything in between! She especially loves to make fairy dough and have dance parties. Caitlin is so excited to come back to camp this summer and is hard at work with the Coordinators to plan the best summer ever for all future campers! She is counting down the days until camp starts!
Calvin is the Business director for ASUS camps this year! He was a counsellor for camps here last summer and had an absolute blast. He has previously worked for various camps over the past seven years in extreme adventure camps or dedicated sports camps as general staff and management! His favourite activities by far at camp include some of the cool field trips we get to go on or any science experiments where I get to get to use my degree in chemistry to make some cool slime or nebula galaxies!! If you ever need to get in contact with him or Caitlin about any questions you have about camp, feel free to fire them an email or call the office during regular working hours!
Chloe has just graduated from Queen's University where she studied Psychology. She isn't sure what the future has in store, but she is absolutely sure SHE LOVES CAMP! And that is why she is thrilled to be one of two Program Coordinators this summer here at ASUS Camps! Her favorite things about camp are all the silly songs, the crazy crafts and the funny games. Until camp starts you can find her playing tennis with friends, making cute jewelry or hiking outdoors. She cannot wait to meet all the campers and learn about arts and sciences with everyone!
Laura is 22 years old and is one of the two fabulous Program Coordinators this summer at ASUS Camp! She has just finished her Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry at Queen’s University and next year she’s going to the University of Toronto for her Master’s in Molecular Genetics. This is her first year working at ASUS Camp but she’s worked at all sorts of other camps before - eight different ones! She loves camp because you’re always making new friends, you learn something new everyday and spend all summer long having fun! Apart from doing cool science, Laura loves to rock climb, make boondoggle, and paint in her artbook. She’s super excited to start camp this summer and has been working really hard planning only the best activities for camp! She can’t wait to meet all the new campers and just have a blast this summer!
