Mountain Arts Summer Camp Counsellor

Live in the mountains and help youth belong, grow, thrive, and lead through artistic expression in the natural world.

At YMCA Calgary we are passionate about our work and know that we are creating a positive impact in the community. Our staff feel welcomed from the first day they start and quickly feel a sense of belonging here at the Y. If you are looking to care deeply about your work, make the community a better place, and develop your leadership skills this is the place for you!

The new Mountain Arts groups have a focus on visual arts, using the natural world and mountain culture as inspiration. Campers will also develop their comfort in the backcountry, combining hiking and leadership skills with time to create. During their time at camp, they will work on group and individual creative projects and share some of their work with the camp community. Campers will talk about their personal goals and develop group goals for both their backcountry trip and art experiences. They will have the opportunity to be a leader in their tipi group as they help facilitate games and take turns leading the group.
