High Ropes, Low Ropes & Climbing Wall

Camp Timberlane

Camp Timberlane is a co-ed traditional summer residential camp located in Haliburton Ontario, Canada – approximately 2.5 hours north of Toronto. We encourage you to check out our website ( to learn more about our Camp and everything we have to offer. We have about 500 campers and 200 staff at any one time, with around 75 staff joining us from all over the world. Our staff training for Ropes/Climbing Wall staff runs from June 24 to July 1 when the campers arrive. The final day of employment is August 20, 2021, which is also the last day of Camp.

Ropes/Climbing staff work with a team of 5 or 6 others, under the supervision of the specialty head. C.U.I Level 1 & Level II qualifications or equivalent are preferred, but in some cases many hours of experience as a participant and instructor are enough to qualify for our staff training course which is taught by our specialty head in concert with Challenges Unlimited Inc.

We operate a 30’ climbing wall as well as 8 elements in our High Ropes course, with varying degree of difficulty for participants of all ages. We also have a Static Ropes Course features over 12 elements at different heights and levels.  Each day is divided into 5 one hour activity periods and individual cabin groups are scheduled for different activities around camp. High Ropes periods are usually 2 hours, while Climbing Wall periods are traditionally 1 hour.

Ropes/Climbing staff at Timberlane lodge in recently renovated camper cabins with bathroom facilities and an adjacent room for staff. There are typically 3-6 staff per cabin; 2 or 3 cabin counsellors and 1 to 3 specialty counsellors based on the size of the cabin. Staff have six 24 hour periods off (one per week, not including the final week of Camp) and access to free Wi-Fi in the Staff Lounge.

There is much more we can tell you about Timberlane and our High Ropes/Climbing program. Please contact Harley Hayman ( for more information or apply online.

Thank you!
