Out of all the amazing experiences I had over the summer, my favourite part with working with Camp Fresh Roots was getting to meet so many funny, kind and creative children.

To Be a Great Fresh Roots Staff, You Must…

  • Be open-minded

  • Be able to adapt
  • Be fun!

5 Awesome Things About Camp Fresh Roots

  • Fun environment for staff and campers!
  • Diverse activities and games
  • Field trips
  • Farming
  • Cooking and baking with fresh ingredients from our farm!

I learnt a lot over the summer. Camp Fresh Roots and Fresh Roots in general gave me the opportunity to improve many skills in an environment where I felt safe and okay to make mistakes as they are apart of learning! I enjoyed my memorable summer facilitating and having a good time with campers!
