Camp He Ho Ha

Employment

Each summer Camp Health, Hope & Happiness employs 30 paid counsellors, 2 counsellor/lifeguards, 1 climbing wall facilitator/ resource, 1 counsellor/climbing wall assistant, 1 counsellor/barge driver, 5 team leaders, 1 arts and crafts/ resource,  and 2 medical staff (3rd Year Nurse/Grad Nurse or RN) to provide personal care, programming and medical care to the campers. The staff are University or College students from across Canada in various fields of study. The ratio of counsellors to campers varies from one counsellor for every three campers to one counsellor for every two campers depending on the program. Counsellors are chosen on the basis of their skills, leadership and interest in working with individuals with mental and physical disabilities.

Prior to the first camp of the season, it is mandatory for all summer camp staff to attend a very extensive eleven day orientation which includes the following: communication & team building, dealing with aggressive behavior, lifts & transfers, sign language, emergency procedures, fire safety, legal & liabilities, camp philosophy, sessions re: individuals with mental disabilities, individuals with physical disabilities, session with the nurses on caring for people with disabilities, familiarization of all programs areas and training on climbing wall & ropes courses and more! This provides summer staff with the information and skills required to successfully provide the high quality level of care required for the campers.
