The Coaches & Teachers Assistant Program (CTAP) combines the fun of being a participant with important life skills such as leadership, personal development, team-work, and communication; all under the watchful eyes of our experienced educators and coaches. 

Working with guidance from our camp and program director(s), CTAP participants will observe and assist in all aspects of the camp program and daily activities, whilst receiving performance feedback in a constructive environment, helping to build self-confidence and interpersonal skills.

CTAP participants will be assigned a program for a given camp session from the CTAP director and camp administrative staff.  Program placement can/will vary through the summer to provide a well-balanced experience, and although requests can be made, there are no guarantees for specific program placement for all enrolled weeks, but we will do our best to ensure a great experience.
