Camp Staff

The Mount Allison University summer camp team consists of faculty members and senior university students that have extensive experience working with different age groups of students.

All staff holds a minimum of current Standard First Aid and CPR certification. Police background checks are also conducted on all prospective employees. Mount Allison University runs a multi-day training session for all staff at the beginning of each season to ensure new staff are prepared and that returning staff remain fresh and sharp. Every staff member at the camp is chosen for their qualities of leadership, character and sense of responsibility for the campers entrusted in their care. Staff members are fun, enthusiastic individuals fully committed to ensuring that each individual at Mount Allison University summer camps experience success and positive self-growth while participating in our customized programs.

Our staff members host a friendly, creative, responsible, supportive and fun environment during your stay. They are an amazing group of faculty members and senior student leaders.

Throughout the camper's stay at Mount Allison University, they can be assured of a safe environment where creativity, shared learning, and personal growth are the goals of every program.

 Riley Higdon



Hi I'm Riley! I am going into my fourth year as a Psychology and Biology student! I cannot wait for my favorite part of the year; summer! This will be my second year back at MTA Summer Camps and I could not be more excited! In the summertime I love being active, whether it be hiking a mountain, swimming in the ocean or playing sports with friends. I love to travel, meet new people and explore new things about the world. I must say that North Face gives the best advice : never stop exploring!

 Third time's the charm! Hey everybody, I’m Alex. I just finished a degree in English, so this is my final summer with Mt A Camps before I head off on my next adventure. I like watching movies, reading comic books, and eating pizza, just like you! But my favorite activity is definitely improv, because I get to act like a goofball in front of a bunch of people! See you soon! I'm SUPER excited to come back for another AWESOME summer, it's going
to be RADICAL!
