Skills Area Head

YMCA Camp Pine Crest

Skills Area Heads
Area Heads coordinate the day to day operation of our various skill areas, like ropes, boating,
swimming, natural arts and crafts, and outdoor living skills. They will ensure the effective
delivery of Pine Crest skills levels and develop new resources for their respective areas. Area
Heads are also responsible for the overall operation of their program areas, ensuring that
policies, procedures and safety expectations are being met while also maintaining equipment.
Skills Area heads will take an active role in promoting high quality programs around camp,
supporting counsellors in their cabin programs and working with the program team to plan and
deliver special events. Skills Area heads should have a desire to go that extra mile to ensure that
all in camp programming is being run at a high level. Counsellors and MACK’s will look to the
program team for guidance on how to develop and implement high quality programming with
their cabins. Skills area heads provide input to all special events at camp. They will assist in the
planning, preparation and delivery of themed meals, all camp days, section nights and more.
