Staff Accommodation
With the rural location of our resort, most employees require that accommodation and meals be provided throughout their employment period. This is available at the applicable government specified rate and is subject to a strict set of policy guidelines. If at any time an employee feels that they are unable to live up to these guidelines, they will be asked to find accommodation elsewhere. Meals are served at specific times each day and there will not be any allowances for meals missed, or nights spent off property. Rooms vary in size to accommodate from 2 to 8. Employees will be responsible for supplying their own towels, linen, and a pillow, and there is a coin laundromat available on property. Overnight guests are permitted if signed in, but there is a limit of 5 guests per night for the entire property. Please note that there is a $100.00 cleaning deposit that we collect before you are given your accommodation. The deposit is returned on your last pay cheque once a room inspection has been completed. Please arrive at the start of your contract with your  deposit.

Babysitting and Hallsitting
With the increasing number of families vacationing at our resort we have found it necessary to provide babysitting and hallsitting services each night of the week. With this in mind, it is mandatory for Children’s Counsellors to perform hallsitting shifts weekly and can sign up for additional babysitting. Reimbursement will either come directly from the guest, or from the resort at the applicable babysitting rate.
