Alumni Camp Staff Council

The outcome of the research indicates the need and desire to create a camp alumni staff council. We are now beginning the process of putting together a camp alumni staff council who will work together to support BC Easter Seals Camps.

Alumni Camp Staff Council

All council members hold equal say in the direction of the council.  The council members are dedicated camp alumni staff who wish to stay involved in the BC Lions Society and BC Easter Seals Camps. 

The Camp Alumni Council is for Camp Staff Alumni who:

·         Want to stay involved in supporting camp

·         Are interested in further developing skills

·         Are comfortable taking initiative

·         Can commit to being on the council for at least one year

·         Want to be part of creating something great!

Each member will have specific duties, however, will also have general responsibilities.

·         Attendance at meetings

·         Generation and initiation of ideas

·         Contributions to discussions

·         Part of a team
