KEEP

We have the conceptual design of a 720 room hotel and 200 acre playground for child protection.  In the BC Canada context we could dramatically improve quality of care and save taxpayers $18.6 million per year in operating costs alone.

This is our first attempt at a website, and more pages /drawings will follow.

Masters arrange their own lounge games, parties, campfires, etc.  The Floor Master is the leader, but individuals can choose not to vote or participate.  Twenty-one different awards (medals, trophies, etc.) are up for competition.  Awards are in four categories,  1.  Go-cart.  2.  Sk8  3.  Social/Academic  4.  Martial Arts

Security is provided by the Sheriff and Alert Team.  Sensors and surveillance with perimeter fencing is necessary.  It should be impossible for two people with rifles and a truck to crash our freight entrance.  Another concern is (hopefully) harmless pranksters attempting to cross the perimeter at night.  Memoranda of agreement are of course required with police, fire, ambulance, towing companies, etc.

Counselors enjoy many fringe benefits, including a mini hotel in the entrance building with tiny overnight rooms.  Training period paid.  Detailed knowledge of the Hotel and Playground will be taught.  Next videos of actors playing out Silly List scenarios will be viewed and discussed.  Much discussion and team building at this stage.  Finally special instruction for Home, Alert, Free, Culinary, Housekeeping and Grounds Counselors.

During the opening of the hotel and playground and the commissioning phase contractors and employees will manage the technical aspects of the Hotel.  During the first training month the Tribunal, Mechanic, Chef and Sheriff will train the first Counselors, who will go on to train other Counselors in specialty areas.  The security, kitchen, grounds, laundry, physical plant etc workers will gradually be replaced by trained Hotel Counselor staff.  The Tribunal will always be involved in the basic Free, Home and Alert Team counselor training.  After one month 30 counselors will be trained and begin replacing the technical commissioning staff.  First Masters to be admitted after the first month.  In the beginning 12 year olds in the top floor.  After 36 12 year olds placed , moving down to younger floors and then upper floors.  Mothers floors to be filled last.  The floors are named for age.  The ground floor is the Baby Floor (B) and above that the first floor for one year olds.

We begin with 12 year olds because they have few of the special needs of babies and 20 year olds.  The top floors are occupied first to combine the Counselors and Masters.  All of this is intended to provide the most stable possible beginning to the program.  In steady state all the 12 year olds would be living on the 12th floor.  The town would provide housing for Counselors, with the Counselor’s lounge providing temporary accommodation for them.

In addition to receiving basic training and training new counselors  staff will finalize housing arrangements during the first month.  A transition from the Hotel to the reception hotel to the Town housing accomplished.

Commissioning staff will provide expertise in special tasks, eg., room cleaning, kitchen, ambulance, jump pivot supervision, Fragile House, Teen, Play House, perimeter, sheriff and weapons, and Computer supervision.  Details unavailable as there are too many unknowns.
