What our Staff say about working at camp
“Because of camp I am able to get in front of any crowd and feel relaxed. I have been able to grow in confidence, and can firmly say that I know what I want to do with the rest of my life.”
“I feel like even though I was mature before camp I feel even more mature now. The way I look at people, respond to things, and deal with stress has changed and I think that’s because how I grew this summer!”
“Because of camp I get to surround myself with people, staff and campers alike, that inspire me every single day. These people have also allowed me to discover myself, and to grow into the best me I can be.”

Pearce Williams & our camper parents expect our staff members to be positive role models for our campers. Pearce Williams expects our staff to act in a Christ-like manner in all situations.
These expectations, along with the need to provide a safe environment for our campers, is the basis for our banning any tobacco products, non-prescription drugs, alcohol and marijuana on site at Pearce Williams Christian Centre.
We will not tolerate staff members who use and promote illicit drugs while under our employ, or any staff member on site in an inebriated state. We suggest that you carefully consider your commitment to these policies BEFORE applying to work with us this summer.
