We pride ourselves in not just having one overall responsibility but in sharing the work of others. What follows is a general guideline to direct your creative abilities in efficiently fulfilling the necessary work.
Special Needs Camp would not be the success it is each year were it not for the selfless acts of the staff, prepared to fulfil not only the letter but the spirit of these guidelines. These are but the bare bones of responsibilities, but in order to do the job successfully, you will need initiative, motivation, stamina and a sense of humour. If you have any queries about the work you have been invited to do, please do not hesitate to contact the Camp Co-ordinator.
