I could not be more lucky to get to “work” here. A job for all educators to consider!

Camp Easter Seal – Saskatchewan
As Saskatchewan’s only 100% accessible camp, Camp Easter Seal annually hosts more than 700 campers with physical and intellectual disabilities at Manitou Beach. With an on site medical staff and special diets team, CES is prepared to meet the complex medical requirements of their campers. Campers and counselors stay in modern cabins and participate in a variety of activities developed to target their specific interests and abilities. Campers make new friends, develop independence and build confidence in their abilities while creating lifelong memories. I have been blessed to be part of this magic since 2011. I have never worked so hard to make someone else smile or adapt an activity so everyone has the opportunity to experience it. I have grown as a person and I know that if anything is possible at camp, then anything is possible within our schools and classrooms. My favorite part about the job is the people-first language, the wonderful people I get to work alongside and support and how the ability shines through here! The happiest place in the world is not Disneyland – it’s Camp Easter Seal and it CAN be our classrooms, too.
