This month we had Summer in the Snow (SITS). This is our first staff training of the year. All of our prospective 2016 staff came to Knox United Church in Embro for a day of fun and learning.
We had approximately 40 staff at our event. Staff got to know each other while they took part in many activities including: team builders, leadership sessions, anti-bulling sessions, learning to make camp bracelet and about other cabin time activities, learning camp songs, learning how to deal with difficult camper situations, and learning about their role as different staff positions.
Staff also had fun throughout the day competing in a team challenge. Staff were placed in 6 different teams. Each team worker together throughout the day to earn points for their team in team challenges. The competition was close but in the end the "Sticky Unicorns" were the winners.
Overall, staff had some fun and enjoyed bonding and being back together after the winter back at school. We were glad to see so many of our staff returning to us and so many of our past campers who are now coming on to staff as CIT's. We look forward to having these great people of our staff this summer.
See below to take a look at some of the fun we had and to take a look at which staff are returning to us this year:
