PJ'07 Provincial Junior Camp 2007

Little Monsters


Kiwanis Apps Mills Park, Brandford, Ontario - August 4th through August 6th, 2007


Dear Parents and Members,

St. John Ambulance in Ontario is hosting a camp for Juniors and younger Cadets (ages 6 through 12) from August 4, 2007 to August 6, 2007. This is an excellent opportunity for members to meet new friends from around the province. The program for this event includes outdoor activities to challenge, teach and enhance the skills of our young people. All participants can look forward to a variety of group-based leadership and team building activities! Arrival time will be Saturday, August 4, 2007 from 10-11am. Departure will be on Monday, August 6, 2007 by 2:00pm. This year�s Junior Camp will be held on the grounds of Kiwanis Apps Mill Park, Brantford, Ontario.

The cost for this weekend event is $35 and includes all accommodations (rooms or tents), meals, crafts, snacks and an exciting two-day program. We as well are accepting applications from crusaders (16 and older) to help us run the camp. Transportation to and from the event is to be arranged locally and is the responsibility of the member and/or their Unit.

St. John Ambulance Youth (Cadets and Crusaders) perform many hours of service in their local communities and their program is second to none. Rarely however, do they get the chance to meet youth members from other parts of the province. This will be another great opportunity to provincially organize a camp specifically targeted at our Juniors and young pre-teen Cadets (ages 6 though 12)! With our successes of R2K 2000, ICE 03, Camp PJ 02, Camp PJ 04 and Camp PJ 05, many members still talk about their experiences and friendships! We hope that this year�s event aimed at our Juniors will be looked at as both a reward for outstanding service, and an excellent opportunity to broaden horizons and make new friends.

Please find attached an Application Form, a Medical Information Form, a Kit List and the General Rules for Camp PJ. All forms must be accurately completed and returned with payment to the address shown below, by July 16, 2007 as accommodations and meals must be planned in advance.

I look forward to full participation and hope to see all of our young members participating in this event! For further information contact the Community Services Department at St. John Ambulance Council for Ontario, 1-800-268-7581.

Sincerely,

Doug Keith
Provincial Youth Program Advisor

We are pleased to announce the approval of the following working dress item for use by SJA Medical First Responders in Ontario:

Black short sleeve tactical-style shirt with epaulettes


This black shirt is an optional alternative to the white tactical-style shirt, etc. currently in use by MFRs. It is to be worn as service dress by SJA Medical First Responders only and is an optional alternative to other currently approved service shirts used by MFRs. This black short sleeve shirt (worn with the new SJA volunteer MFR shoulder flashes) is a heavier weight 65% polyester/35% cotton working dress shirt with reflective striping around the circumference of each sleeve. The black shirt compliments the black tactical (cargo) style pant currently used for service purposes by most MFR units.

Dual "trooper-style" shaped front breast pockets have faux-button flaps with Velcro closures that allow for easy access in and out of the pocket. Adding to this crisp, professional-look are sewn-in creases running the length of the left and right sides of the shirt, front and back.

Optionally, the words �MEDICAL FIRST RESPONDER� may (at the discretion of the branch/CSU and at additional cost) be screened on in reflective lettering on the back of the black shirt. This optional lettering has been shown in field trials to assist with clearly defining the wearer as a Medical First Responder and providing rear visibility in low light conditions.

Additional information, including sizing, pricing, ordering (including minimums) and care can be obtained from the approved supplier:


Regards

This informative course introduces leaders to the SJA Youth program, and outlines all the required information and disciplines needed to run an effective SJA Youth program. This course is essential for all SJA Youth leaders and SJA Community Services support staff (RCSCs, Volunteer Coordinators, etc.) across Canada that have direct involvement with SJA Youth. Current SJA Youth leaders and support staff are required to have certification in this course. New SJA Youth leaders and support staff are required to attend the course within the first year of taking on their position.

The St. John Council for Ontario will be holding this course the weekend of May 26 & 27, 2007 in Brantford, Ontario.

This course is located in a conference-facility setting with accommodation available. The course itself is no charge and you need only attend the course during the daytime. However, it is preferable that you take advantage of the accommodation since there is great potential for networking/idea sharing in the evening with other leaders.

Daytime attendees (no accommodations) will be provided refreshments in the morning and a full lunch at no charge. Coffee and tea will be available at all times to everyone.

Attached is an application form for the Brantford Y.L.C. Course.

FROM: Doug Keith, Provincial Youth Program Advisor
DATE: March 1, 2007
RE: Youth Leaders Conference - 2007

How do I do that? What can I do about this? I need some new ideas!!!!! I have great ideas! I want to help, but I�m not sure how?


Have you ever said this to yourself? Well, you can ask those questions, learn and help others with your ideas at our Youth Leaders conference being sponsored by the St. John Council for Ontario and being held at the University of Guelph on Saturday April 14, 2007. Registration is at 8:30am in the MacKinnon Hall with the Conference taking place between 9am and 5pm. Lunch will be provided free of charge to all participants. It is encouraged that all St. John Ambulance members 18 and over that deal directly with Youth or wish to better understand our Youth Program better attend. This will be the largest gathering of Youth Leaders in a long time and the potential of gaining valuable information and networking with other Youth Leaders and supporters of our Youth Program is immense.

Some of the sessions that will be held at the conference will include:
  • Recruitment and Retention � Leaders and Youth Program Participants
  • Fundraising
  • Program/Admin Planning, including new revisions to the Program
  • Leadership � Officers and NCOs
  • Future ideas for our Youth Program

We will have several � hour breaks through the day so you can ask any questions that you have and share your ideas with other people. We will have lots of experienced Youth Leaders and resource people identified and available who will be glad to answer any questions/concerns that you have. As well there will be lots of time within the sessions to have discussion and ask the questions related to those topics and share ideas.

We will also share more information with you about the upcoming HIP7 Rally at the end of the day and provide tours of the facilities so you can get a sense of the environment that Youth attending the Rally this summer will experience.

Provincial Youth Program Advisor

Camp Accreditation Course for 2007 - Certificate Program


TO: Unit Superintendents/Coordinators
FROM: Doug Keith, Provincial Youth Program Advisor
DATE: March 1, 2007
RE: Camp Accreditation Course for 2007 - Certificate Program

St. John Ambulance (SJA) Members enjoy camping and throughout this country many SJA Camps take place. To ensure proper training standards for our leaders, the National Camp Accreditation Course is designed to train competent leaders who will operate a successful, safe camp for their members.�

It is the responsibility of all SJA Community Services leaders, that proper application to hold a camp is made to the SJA Provincial Office and that all necessary safety issues are addressed in the application to hold a camp. One of these safety issues is the proper supervision of all participants and the inclusion and participation of supervisory leaders on the camp staff who are certified and in good standing with SJA�s National Camp Accreditation Program.

With the help of one of SJA�s members, Scott Cowley, it is our intention to provide a course this Spring. We are looking at holding a course on the April 20th-22nd, 2007 weekend at Woodland Trails Scout Reserve (East of Aurora, off Hwy 404 North of 401). Applications for this Spring course will be due by April 14th. This course will involve both indoor classes and outdoor practical exercises. Accommodation for course candidates will involve sleeping indoors with the option of sleeping outdoors in tents. This is a full course, so no previous experience is necessary. Candidates wishing to maintain their Level or challenge for a Level upgrading may come on the Saturday only and demonstrate their skills, but will be required to show camping history for the past three (3) years in order to maintain or upgrade. The candidate cost for this course will be $60 for the weekend ($20 for Saturday only) and will cover all meals, accommodation and course materials while on course. Transportation costs will be the responsibility of the course candidates.

We wish Units to identify suitable candidates to ensure that every unit can be in a position to run camps should they choose to incorporate them into their programs during the coming year. Youth leaders 18 years of age or over or Community Services members 18 years of age or over who are in good standing in St. John Ambulance, having a suitable police record check on file with our Provincial Office may be considered candidates for these courses. The recommended National Course Syllabus can be found online at: http:///
