Our ECOC Team
Our dynamic and engaged staff are the core of our programs.
ECOC Activity / Program Staff
Our staff team is made up of a variety of different staff members. Most are College and University students studying in Human Kinetics, Education, Childcare and other related degree’s.
Each staff member brings a passion for working with children in outdoor programming and our camp environment. Many bring specific skills and certifications to the team, but all have Emergency First Aid & CPR.
All ECOC staff training is designed around four core principles: Community, Leadership, Accountability and Performance. Each staff member is trained and evaluated on their delivery of these four principles on a daily basis.
Our staff is known for their energy, enthusiasm, and involvement with all their students. A constant compliment we at ECOC receive is the quality of our staff when they compare other programs, a true testament to the people delivering our program
