Program Coordinator

As a part of a team of core camp staff, the Program Coordinator is responsible for planning, developing, implementing, and overseeing our creative, diverse, and engaging program. This includes daily activity sessions, camp-wide activities, and overall programming for camp and for rental groups. Other duties are assigned as required including the preparation of camp and camp facilities before the session begins.

First Aid Coordinator

Administer first aid for the campers when bumps, bruises, upset stomachs occur and dispensing camper’s prescribed medication. With just 70 campers per week, you definitely wouldn’t be seeing patients constantly so in the meantime you would also fulfill the role of floating counsellor - helping with activities and camper supervision.
As a part of the core staff of Camp Triumph, you would be present for all camp sessions and help organize and deliver the camp program.
A full nursing, medical, or paramedic degree is not required. If first aid is not up to date, the successful candidate would be sent to a paid first aid course prior to camp.

Camp Counsellor

Helping to lead activities and building relationships with the campers while looking after their needs as a part of the core team of staff (directors, program and activity coordinators). The core staff is a passionate and cohesive group of people who enrich the experience of the campers and gain valuable, transferrable work experience in the process. 
Core counsellors are present throughout camp, help to plan and organizes the camp program, help prepare the facility before the camp session starts, assist with events, and run programming for renters.
Experience at a summer camp is a strong asset but not required. Experience working with kids is required.

If you’re interested in any of the above positions, please submit a cover letter outlining your suitability, experience working with children, and reasons for applying, along with your resume, to matt@camptriumph.ca.

It’s people like you who are showing that this often unrecognized and under-represented population deserves support. We're so excited to announce that the campaign raised $8505! This means 14 more kids will have a stress-free, unforgettable experience that will help them build skills, coping strategies, and lasting relationships. You also helped to raise the awareness of our organization, our kids, and what we do. This is very valuable for us going forward in our mission. Thank you!

Cole and Brennan have been attending Camp Triumph since they were 8 years old. They’ve loved their family away from home so much that last month, they held a bake sale at Cole Harbour Place.

This isn’t just a one time thing with these guys. They’re planning another bake sale for the new year. But Cole, for his part, has been busking with his fiddle on the Halifax waterfront for several years in support of CT. He’s ready to get back out there as soon as the warm weather returns in 2019. We’re overjoyed to have amazing campers like Cole and Brennan who want to give back.

CT Holiday Giving Overview Image 2017 (pics only) copy.jpeg

This holiday season, a gift to Camp Triumph will be a gift directly toward making a difference in the next generation.

At Camp Triumph, we support some of the most amazing young people who all have a significant life experience in common - they all have a parent or sibling with a serious illness or disability. In a household where one family member requires a lot of care and attention, the children we support are often in the background, their needs under met, but we know their potential is great. We provide a place where campers can harness their unique potential in an environment where they can just be kids.

With 13 years under our belt, we have proven that this large and specific population has needs that aren’t fully being met. We have given them a chance to attend camp for free, make connections with others who truly understand their struggles, find temporary relief from anxiety and stress, and to just have fun. 

As one camper said, “Camp Triumph is my Christmas.” For this camper and so many others, please find a way to help us continue our work of supporting amazing kids as we work towards giving them the tools they need to handle stress, anxiety, and significant challenges, while promoting resiliency, unselfishness, and caring for others.

Camp Triumph is proud to bring an Amazing Race style fundraiser to PEI this June. Similar to the popular TV show, the fun-packed day will see teams of two racing across the Green Gables Shore solving puzzles and completing challenges before crossing the finish line for a post-race celebration at Camp Triumph.

While the task locations remain a secret until race day, teams can expect unique and fun challenges testing both mental and physical ability. Whether first place or last, the real winners will be families affected by chronic disease or disability, as all funds will sponsor eligible children to attend Camp Triumph.

“We are so excited to host this event and proud of the experience we are able to offer participants,” said Program Coordinator and event organizer, Kathleen Murphy. “We welcome teams of all skill levels from across the Island or across the bridge. If you’re interested in registering or donating to a team, please don’t hesitate to send us an email. I look forward to seeing everyone on race day!”
 
Within each team, one participant must be at least 16 years or older to register and at least one team member must have a valid driver's license and access to a vehicle for the day. The event will take place on Saturday, June 24 beginning at Camp Triumph in Malpeque at 11:00 am. Lunch and dinner are provided. As this is fundraising event for Camp Triumph, we ask that teams raise a minimum of $150 in pledges prior to the event in addition to the $80 registration fee. If no fundraising was done, teams can pay $250 to enter. Race advantages are given to top fundraising teams. Spaces are limited.

For more information and updates about the race, please visit Camp Triumph on Facebook and here on our website. If you are up for the challenge and would like to register or have any questions, please email info@camptriumph.ca. Early bird registration saves $20 off registration prices before May 15th so gather your friends and register ASAP! 

If you would like to follow along with racers throughout the day and see highlights and photos of racers and participating businesses, like Camp Triumph on Facebook and Instagram.
