Physio by Total Physio.

Cooking by April.

We will have mostly bush camps this year, with the exception of a short stint at Takysie Lake Resort and Omineca Ski Lodge, and a stay at the Morrison Logging Camp.

We will continue to send folks with planting injuries that cannot be managed in camp to Total Physio if deemed necessary by our first aiders, and continue to work with Total Physio via training and talks. Total Physio works one on one with our First Aiders to train them on the arts of taping and proper diagnosis.

We will need a few extra people this year so tell your friends! We may hire a few rookies too!
