Being a Counsellor in any regard requires many different personal and professional skills. Working with a camper who requires additional support requires even more patience, responsibility, and discipline skills. This position is detail-oriented in regards to the health, safety, parenting, basic personal care needs and integration of the camper.To maintain a high standard of care, the Teammate Support Counsellor is also responsible for teaching and enforcing the HOC Principles of Respect to their campers, including safety expectations of camp and general activities. Ensuring that both campers and staff in the section follow proper equipment use and safety regulations is an important part of working at HOC.
