New
Deadline to Respond: Tuesday, October 17 at 4:30 PM

Overnight Hospitality Support Staff play a crucial role at the SCM. Not only are you viewed as a role model but your presence and energy help to establish a safe and comfortable space for the participants. You serve as an extra set of eyes and hands for the staff team and to make sure all participants are safe and comfortable in the designated areas that are open all night.

As a designated support person, you agree to remain awake and available for support in the Hospitality Suite(s) for the hours it is to remain open to participants. In addition to being available for support, you are also responsible for ensuring the participants are respecting the camp and each other during the night. You will also be responsible for all First Aid incidents that may occur after 8:00 PM. All Hospitality Support Staff will be the main staff on from 8:00 PM to 8:00 AM and will be the designated “go-to” staff for the participants for any questions they may have, concerns and support.

In the event of a crisis during the hours of 8:00 PM – 8:00 AM, you will be responsible for immediately reporting to designated FBCYICN staff (Brittaney Andreychuk or Jules Wilson).

Hospitality staff will receive a $400 honorarium plus reimbursement for any travel expenses to and from the camp including mileage.

Required: A current criminal record check that is less than two years old. Should you require a renewal, FBCYICN will cover the cost.

*You must be able to attend the retreat November 3rd to 5th, 2017
