Professional and Caring Counselors
At Camp Latgawa we carefully recruit and screen quality counselors and staff to serve as Christian role models in your child’s life. Counselors are chosen based on maturity, responsibility, and their experience working with children and youth.  Counselors undergo annual training sessions to develop a variety of skills including health and safety, safe boundaries, faith development, conflict resolution, and positive discipline.
Camp Latgawa also employs young adults each summer to form the backbone of our hospitality. The Summer Support Staff help cook meals, clean facilities, and provide supervision and instruction in activities where additional certification or skills are required such as archery, team building activities, and environmental games. 
Health and Safety 
Health and Safety are important at Camp Latgawa. Counselors and staff work in teams to provide a safe camping environment. All Summer Support Staff are certified in first aid and CPR. Certified lifeguards supervise all aquatic activities, and all campers’ swimming skills are verified in a swim test.
A nurse or physician is present to care for campers and administer medications. In case of emergency, the local fire department provides excellent services. Camp Latgawa is located just 45 minutes away from two major hospitals.
What’s Cooking at Camp Latgawa?
At Camp Latgawa, we nurture campers with healthy, home-cooked, kid-friendly meals. Campers learn about responsibility, stewardship, and the Christian tradition of helping others when they set tables or clean up after meals.

We are experienced in accommodating vegetarian, gluten-free, lactose intolerant and nut-free needs. With your help in letting us know your child’s needs prior to camp on their health form, we will do our best to accommodate nearly all dietary needs.
