Over the many years of facilitating our summer camps, and various school programs here at Luna, many young campers have expressed a great deal of interest in becoming  a part of our growing Luna family.  This interest has subsequently led us to the development of our new JAG program. The JAG program is designed to aid these adventurous campers in expressing their own unique passions for our natural world, while becoming a strong role model for the younger campers new to visiting Luna.

This program has been carefully designed to continue the growth of strength and self confidence, as well to foster strong leadership abilities within each tripper. To become a JAG, each camper will have previously been on 12 or more days of wilderness canoe trips with Luna, and meet the qualifications as outlined below. Once a camper qualifies, they will have earned their chance to start their journey to becoming a trained Wilderness Guide with Luna Adventures, and begin the JAG program.  Each JAG member will assist in the mentoring and welcoming of existing campers, as well as new arrivals into the Luna family.
How the Program Works:
Once a camper has been selected to become a JAG, dates will be provided for staff training, volunteer days, and potential canoe tripping dates.  When dates have been agreed upon, a new JAG will be responsible to serve a minimum of 14 days on wilderness canoe trips, and complete 7 days of volunteering at LUNA.  Upon completion, and a final debrief, JAG’s may qualify for our 21day leadership training which will begin the following season 
  • Of good character

About the Project:

The LUNA Project is a working model of low impact impact sustainable living. Located in Southern Ontario, our diverse landscape of meadows, forest, fields and wetlands inspire the visitor to view their natural environment in a whole new way.

Learning Unique Natural Alternatives is what we're all about; promoting self sufficiency, confidence, and respect for our natural world. Our site is a true testament to our vision. With 90% of our infrastructure being portable yurts powered by renewable resources, and a strong "buy local" philosophy; LUNA has a very small footprint on its surrounding environment, truly practicing what we teach.
