Camp Easter Seals UCP
Unit Leader
May 2013 to Aug. 2013

Camp Easter Seals UCP Virginia is a recreational overnight camp for children and adults with physical and/or mental disabilities. I learned and adapted to the special needs, likes, dislikes - both physical and emotional - of assigned campers. I also assisted campers with daily living activities including transferring, bathing, cleaning after bowel movements/urination, urinal use, feeding, dressing, and changing incontinence products. In addition, I oversaw the well-being of fellow staff, and met regularly with the camp director to discuss ways to improve the experience and safety of campers.
