Muskoka Woods Mission & Vision
Muskoka Woods is a Christian youth development organization that welcomes everyone to an experience for a lifetime. Located on the shores of beautiful Lake Rosseau, we specialize in summer camp, school trips, group retreats and leadership development for all ages. We exist to inspire youth to shape their world.
Muskoka Woods offers a fun, safe and welcoming environment for all youth. At the heart of this offering are staff that share a common desire to help young people realize their full potential. We are committed to making fun experiences the foundation for building new friendships and self-confidence. Our staff make this possible by fostering a sense of community and encouraging youth to reflect on their experiences in order to draw life lessons from them.
Muskoka Woods Summer Camp staff to guest ratio and training are top in the industry
Great counsellors and staff make Muskoka Woods a safe, fun summer camp experience your child will want to return to year after year. Our on-site staff to guest ratio is 2:4, one of the highest supervision rates in North America. Each year, we hire some of the best and brightest young adults from around the world, many of whom attended Muskoka Wood as guests themselves.
Our summer leadership staff receive two months of training before camp begins! The front-line staff then also receive seven days of training before camp begins. Staff training includes: certification in Occupational Health & Safety, emergency preparedness & procedure customer service standards, youth culture & development, insights from child protection experts and specific, hands-on training for each section at camp.
The Muskoka Woods hiring team has received Praesidium training, the global leader in Child Risk Management. We have also partnered with Plan to Protect, the Canadian experts in child abuse prevention and child protection.
Core values are the foundation of all we do at Muskoka Woods. They articulate deeply held beliefs that inform our strategic priorities. These values create an unwavering guide that helps Muskoka Woods achieve its goals.
