Student Nurse / First Aid Counsellor

  • Location:
    Northway
  • Approx Start Date
    June 23, 2019
  • End Date
    August 19, 2019

During Pre-Camp set-up:
Prior to camp, you will organize the First Aid supplies and materials in our Red Cross building; review the camper and health staff forms, and prepare an Index Card for each camper to note any special health concerns-medications, etc. as a quick reference for speaking with counsellors prior to canoe trips. A list of any missing forms should be compiled, and canoe trip First Aid Kits should be stocked.

During Camp:
At the start of each session, you will collect and store medications from campers/ parents/ counsellors as they arrive, and help lead lice checks for all campers.

You’ll hand out any medications as needed, and be available for campers and staff for first aid. You will be responsible for record-keeping for the Health Centre, tracking inventory and providing a list of needed items for re-stocking. As any additional health information is received, you’ll update files. If anyone requires a trip to the doctor (we share a camp doctor with another camp on an adjacent lake) or hospital, you will accompany them.

As canoe trips depart, you will hand out First Aid Kits to trip counsellors, review the health cards of the campers with their trip counsellor, and prepare medications for any campers who will need it for their trip. When trips return, you will collect Trip First Aid Kits, and re-stock them.

As each session ends, you’ll return medications to campers who are departing.
