“I was only eight when I first came to camp and I was absolutely terrified! The only people I knew there were my family, but within hours after arriving I felt as though I had a whole new family to comfort and support me.”
Our staff sets White Pine apart. They are mature, nurturing and committed to providing every camper with the most incredible experience possible. Many of our staff return year after year and are adored by the campers.
“I will always remember when I was younger counting down the days with my friends until the first day of camp. Now that we are all staff members, not much has changed. We wait with excitement to go to Camp White Pine because it is always the best two months of the year. I cannot describe how lucky I feel to have spent so many summers at such a special place. Camp has taught me many skills such as leadership, approachability and independence and the friends I made at camp 10 years ago remain my best friends today. As a counsellor I try my best to emulate the amazing staff members I had growing up and ensure every camper loves camp just as much as I did! I have loved every second of my 11 years at camp and I cannot wait for summer number 12 this year!”
First-time campers immediately feel the spirit when they arrive at camp. Warm, nurturing counsellors welcome them with open arms. From the moment they step into their cabin, everyone is included as part of the cabin group. Friendships are formed that often last a lifetime.
