Our Program Manager
My name is Cynthia, I work at Hub Climbing as a Youth and Camp Program Manager for both locations (Markham and Mississauga) as well as an Assistant Facility Manager primary in Markham. My background in Early Childhood Education helps me understand how children develop and how they grow. As an Assistant Facility Manager, I assist with the day-to-day task of the facility and help families, members, guests, and the community enjoy climbing. Helping every individual find their potential is one of the best parts of being an Assistant Facility Manager.
Working at Hub as both a Youth and Camp Program Manager and Assistant Facility Manager has been an amazing journey where continue to grow and learn about everyone that walks into Hub Climbing.
Supervisor & Camp Lead
Hi, my name is Taryn, I assist the camp program in Markham. I grew up in a large blended family, which helped me make my decision to go into early childhood development. I believe with all my experience in child care that learning to climb is an essential skill that teaches them how to solve problems and builds confidence in their decision-making. Climbing also aids in children’s mental and physical development and has been shown to improve creativity, memory, and critical thinking abilities.
We believe that your child should learn new things, meet new people, and best of all – forge friendships. Camp should be safe and run by trained counselors. Camp should also be fun and give many opportunities for YOUR child’s personal growth.
Hub provides a mix of activities so that learning comes naturally. We do more than climbing for our campers. We have arts and crafts, yoga, fitness games, outdoor games and, weather permitting, forest walks.
We strive to create a social environment that is caring and supportive where campers feel they can take risks, make new friends and try new things. At Hub Climbing, most of our campers are totally new climbers who come from a variety of backgrounds.
Climbing is both a cognitive and physical activity. The climbing challenges are designed to require a mix of athletic movement and delicate balance to complete.
Challenges always require conquering oneself. Your child will set personal goals, learn perseverance, explore and reflect on their successes and next steps. Talent is easy. Practice and trying is hard work. We will show youth, and adults too, that hard work can and should be fun. Remember, climbing is not about “heights” but about balance, goal setting, perseverance and of course brains and fitness.
Climbers will confront various challenges simultaneously. Participants leave the ground taking on short but tricky climbing challenges using their balance, technique, strength, and problem-solving skills. Their fear factor can be present as well. A climbing challenge can be as low as inches of the ground and still be very challenging to complete.
Many of our coaches and camp program planners are certified teachers and/or teacher candidates and ECEs. More than that, our trained counselors share a love for the sport and the culture of co-operation. Your child will have experienced leadership from educators who love what they do. The counselors and teachers will set the tone for fun and excitement.
Our camp staff are trained in safety regulations, emergency procedures and communication, behavior management techniques, appropriate staff and camper behavior, and specific procedures for supervision.
We believe in positive reinforcement, assertive role modeling and a sense of fair play. Camp takes place with a ratio of no more than 5 campers per counselor. Rules are necessary for any organization to maintain the safety and enjoyment of all participants. We use a progressive disciplinary approach where expectations are clearly stated at the beginning of each activity.
