About UsOur History

Health & Wellness

Our commitment to fostering resilience and well-being isn’t solely directed towards our campers and their families. We prioritize the health and wellness of our staff by offering a comprehensive medical and dental benefits, retirement savings matching, a supplemental health & wellness reimbursement policy, unlimited sick days, a clear right to disconnect policy, and a culture where staff are encouraged to bring their full selves to work each day. We also show this commitment through our learning & development program, which frequently provides resources and training on topics such as mindfulness, mental health first aid, and conflict management and resolution.

Learning & Development

Campfire Circle is a learning organization, and we intentionally create space for personal and career development, learning implementation and growth, and trial and error. We provide a multitude of learning opportunities through the year across a variety of platforms, including self-directed courses on LinkedIn Learning, customized learning paths to support career milestones and role transitions, cross-functional opportunities, and org-wide workshops/seminars. We also enjoy gathering together as an organization on a quarterly basis to learn, connect, and have fun.

Employee committees and clubs

From our Social Committee, to our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee (and the DEI book club!), our staff love gathering over shared interests, and we enjoy the culture that has formed from so many unique perspectives joining together for a shared purpose. There is room for everyone around the campfire.

Campfire Circle is grateful for Indigenous communities’ stewardship of the land that we occupy- the traditional territory of many nations such as the Mississauga’s of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We aspire to be deserving stewards of the land, in partnership with them. We also acknowledge all Treaty peoples – including those who came here as settlers – as migrants either in this generation or in generations past – and those of us who came here involuntarily, particularly forcibly dis-planted Africans, brought here as a result of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and Slavery.
