Parent Communications Representative (PCR) Role
The Parent Communications Representative (PCR) is required over the four months of the Spring and Summer Employment Period and encompasses two sets of responsibilities; one in the Spring and one in the Summer. During the Spring, the PCR acts as a general assistant for various administrative duties at HOC. During the summer, the PCR switches over to a communication liaison between campers and parents, in addition to various summer administrative tasks.
Specifically, the PCR summer responsibilities involve working cooperatively amongst members of the Senior Staff Team as the leading point of contact with campers, their parents, and HOC staff. The PCR is responsible for the initial contact of all first-time campers and their parents within the first 48 hrs of camp through email or phone, and they may also be asked to step in on serious camper issues and other camper satisfaction-related issues as they arise through the summer. The PCR works closely with all staff teams to ensure camper health and well-being while at HOC.
This combined role is a designated office position, with increased camper and staff interaction throughout the summer months.
Counselling Director Assistant Role
Working as a member of the HOC Counselling team, the Counselling Director Assistant’s main role is to support and improve the effectiveness of HOC’s counselling program. This role is facilitated by establishing clear and concise goals, as well as supervising and evaluating staff counselling techniques. The Counselling Director Assistant will work closely with the Counselling Director and each of the 6 Section Heads to train and supervise counselling staff in their roles, as well as oversee camper safety and discipline concerns. Assistants are responsible for enforcing 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.
