ity, maturity and sense of responsibility.

Most of our staff have themselves been Arrowhead campers, and have 'grown up' with us. All are certified in First Aid and CPR.

All Arrowhead staff have as their goal the safest and happiest camp experience possible for every camper. Because our counsellors are also instructors in one of our activities, they get to know every camper.

Here is a look at our amazing staff for the Summer of 2014
