Our leaders work in groups to facilitate activities for campers, playing an integral role in Camp Dawn. There are two leaders and 5-7 campers per cabin.Leaders sleep in their own room in the cabin and there are 2 washrooms in each cabin. All food is providedby teh camp.  Most campers are self-sufficient and do not need to be constantly monitored; however, leaders are expected to know the whereabouts of their campers. Leaders are NOT expected to act as personal assistants for campers – campers that need that level of assistance will come to camp with their own personal attendants. Rather, leaders play a friendly role in guiding campers towards a fun camp experience

Our leaders are volunteers who are at least 18 years of age. Leaders come from a variety of backgrounds, from social service careers, university and college students, professionals in the ABI field, family members and community members.  Leaders must have a valid first aid certification and criminal reference check.
