The strength of the HOC program is based on the strength of the staff team. The staff development programs are the foundation of training individuals to work and succeed in the camp environment. Working as a member of the HOC Sr Staff team, the Head of Staff Development's main role is to support and improve the effectiveness of the CIT/LIT programs. This role is facilitated by establishing clear and concise goals (Lesson Plans) for the program and executing program delivery in a quality manner. In addition, the role requires that the Head ensure weekly schedules and CIT/LIT expectations are followed through, facilitate/delegate all activity and theory sessions, plan and lead a four day canoe trip in Algonquin Park (once per session) as well as a one night camping trip with LITs (once per session) and complete all CIT/LIT evaluations. Heads are responsible for teaching CIT/LIT's the safety requirements of each program ensuring that all participants use equipment properly and follow safety standards. This includes providing care to our campers that reflects the standards and guidelines of HOC's Child Care Practices. The Head of Staff Development is also responsible for taking a lead in the mentorship of HOC's first-year staff members, to ensure they have positive supports in their new job roles.
