VSK@Somers bids adieu to Georgie Johnstone and opens EOI for Camp Leader position

VSK Camp 2024A in February 2024 will be Georgie Johnstone’s last camp as Camp Leader for VSK @ Somers Camp. Georgie and the Executive Committee are already hard at work planning for a magical weekend of fun and respite for VSK families. The Programs and Activities committee (PandA) would like to thank Georgie for her leadership, passion, service, hard work, strategic approach, and enthusiasm as she approaches her final VSK Camp in the role of Camp Leader. 

Georgie’s time in the role has seen her lead VSK Camp post-COVID, deliver amazing themes such as ‘VSK: Game On,’ support camp staff to deliver three (and soon to be four!) wonderful weekends for VSK families, and collaborate with fellow Community Camp Leaders to improve the quality of our programs.  

Expressions of interest have now opened for the next VSK Camp Leader. Ideally, we would like someone appointed to work alongside Georgie in the lead-up to VSK Camp 2024A, serving on her Executive or committee and getting familiar with the ropes.  

As VSK Camp Leader, your role is to: 

• Advocate for and represent VSK Camp on behalf of Executive Team and Committee, to the Programs and Activities Committee (PandA), LSC&PH Office and Somers Inc, LSC&PH members, all stakeholders and the wider community. 

• Oversee the planning and implementation of a relevant, safe and engaging program for staff and participants in line with corresponding Program Quality Framework and Core Indicators. 

• Support and mentor the Executive Team, Committee members and the staff of VSK Camp. 

• Delegate and manage all program-related tasks. 

• Escalate and troubleshoot issues and challenges that arise with PandA and the LSC&PH Office. 

  • Work collaboratively with the Community Camps Leader, the leaders of other community camps and the Chair of PandA on a quarterly basis to improve our programs.
