Camp is About… The Staff

Camp Glenburn Staff

The Staff

Camping overnight away from home is an adventure – both exciting and sometimes scary for new campers. That’s why we maintain a low camper-to-staff ratio of 3-5:1, ensuring each counsellor provides individual care, comfort and friendship to campers.

All of our staff have received criminal background checks, Standard First Aid, CPR training and all waterfront staff are certified by the National Lifesaving Society of Canada and by Paddle Canada.

The Director

Mark Cruz first arrived at Glenburn as a camper in 2003. He never really left, attending camp as a CIT, Staff and Resource member. After pursuing studies in New York City and outdoor education in Alberta – Mark is ready return to Glenburn for a safe and fun summer.
