Edmund Rice Camp: Expectations of Leaders

Edmund Rice Camps aims to be a place where everyone feels they ‘fit in’ and are allowed to share something of their talents and life experience. We expect our Leaders to be role models to the children we work with and set a good example throughout the week. Everyone involved in Camp is responsible for creating a nice environment.

In order that this be the case, leaders are asked to:

To sum up the camps, here are a few memories from this year’s leaders

“When the first group (St Vincent’s) came running in, all the leaders were spread out around the circle waiting just as nervously as some of the kids and when Teresa went running over to Helen it just made me smile lots and think that they do actually remember the previous year and come in with the same enthusiasm again.” Laura Manning

“When Flo did an impression of me doing (the now legendry) ‘how big’s your telly!'” Becky McEneany

“The activities were great and the kids were always busy. Couldn’t ask for a better bunch of leaders.” Jay Davies

“I loved this opportunity to really mess around with the kids and get to be one of them for a bit” Robert Poole

“When I got picked by the kids to go on the tabogan in Llandudno as it was nice to feel that they appreciated what id done for them during the week so much that they wanted to do something nice for me :)” Sarah Achillies

“I think the last day was my favorite day, everyone just really loved it and got involved with all of the activities and it was great to see all of the pupils and leaders having an amazing day. It was heartwarming and even brought a tear to my eye” Emma Sharkey
