Caitlin d'Esterre has been attending camps since the age of 8, starting at Hills of Peace in Alberta. She has been a counselor for several years now and this will mark her fourth year as camp nurse. Thanks to Alfredo and Rachelle taking a chance on 'importing' a nurse from Alberta, Caitlin has become a part of this incredible community.
Caitlin took 2.5 years of a Political Science degree before switching to a Bachelor of Nursing in 2012. When being a 'regular nurse' Caitlin works at the Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) in Calgary, Alberta. In this setting she takes care of small, fragile and sick babies and their families. Although there are some very rough days, the best part of the job is sending a baby home with their parents to live a long, happy life.
Caitlin recently got married to her awesome husband Tanner, and they have two cats at home. They are big movie buffs, enjoy boisterous rounds of board games, and love any excuse to gather with good friends and good food!
Caitlin is really excited to direct the nursing/first aid team this summer and continue on with the mentoring that began with several staff last summer. Remember boys and girls: no front flips on the slip 'n slide!!!
