Volunteer Dermatologists

Camp Liberté is fortunate to have dermatologists from across the country who provide medical supervision of the camps. Our volunteers often come away from the experience with a new appreciation of their patient’s experiences with skin conditions. 

Camp Papillon and Camp Horizon Counsellors

The volunteer counsellors are selected based on their experience working with children with disabilities in a camp environment. The camp management staff at Camp Papillon and Camp Horizon interview, screen and select the counsellors. All counsellors undergo extensive training and are trained in First Aid, Lifeguarding and handling the needs of campers with disabilities.

Detailed information about the counsellor training can be found on our Parents and Kids FAQ page.
