Staff Overview

General Overview:

Easter Seals Camps have a mandate to provide a 3:1 camper to staff ratio, which is significantly larger than the 8:1 or 10:1 that you’d find at other sleep-over summer camps. Prior to camp, we provide an in-depth orientation period that will cover everything you need to know.  As such, experience is not as important as the right kind of attitude. The summer season starts with training in the beginning of June and then we transition into our week long camp sessions which run until the middle of August. Camp sessions run for 6 days with 3-day breaks between each camp.  During these camp sessions staff are required to be on-site 24hrs a day.

Our staff are a group of dedicated individuals that come together with one common goal: giving campers the best week of their summer! We have a total of around 30 full time summer staff.  In addition, between 1 and 4 volunteers join for a week at a time. As this is such a large staff it is important that everyone is able to work effectively in a large group.

All staff must have proof of a Standard First Aid and CPR-C prior to the start date. A criminal record check completed within 6 months of the start of camp with a vulnerable sector search is also mandatory.  We also recommend a Hep A and B vaccination prior to employment.
