You guide a group through experiences. You take them through the thoughts, feelings, or actions related to those experiences. You help the group draw out their own understanding of their camp experience and the ways to use this knowledge when they return home. Your presence as a facilitator provides an environment where campers learn and grow and always feel safe; physically and emotionally. If this sounds like you, consider an opportunity as a Challenge Course Facilitator with the Tim Horton Camps.
