The best way to Spend your Summer
We have Volunteer positions available for people of all ages who want to dedicate part of their summer to serving here. All Volunteer Positions must attend Staff Leadership Training (SLT) in order to be trained and become familiar with your role, our policy, and our team. All Volunteer Position applications are open! To apply, simply register for SLT Camp – the application form is embedded in the camp registration form. When you register for SLT you will be automatically waitlisted – this does not mean the camp is full! This is because we need to manually place you in the camp once we review your application. We will reach out to our volunteers so please make sure your phone number and email are in your profile when you register.
IMPORTANT: Underage volunteer staff must have their parent/guardian register them for SLT. However, volunteers need to fill out the application using their own account with their own email address.

TITLE: JUNIOR WORKER
REPORTS TO: Junior Team Leads
Requirements: Must be completed grade 8 or higher
Jr. Workers are a vital role in supporting the ministry by serving others. You will be working with the Jr. Leads, as well as the other Jr. Workers volunteering that week, to serve staff and campers as well as maintain the cleanliness of camp. This includes serving meals, cleaning up after each meal, and cleaning the facilities throughout the week.
Each week you will be assigned a cabin that you will be a part of. When you are dismissed from your cleaning duties, you will be able to go hang out with your assigned cabin. This is to allow you to get an idea of what it would be like to be a Jr. Cabin Leader as well as be able to get involved in more ministry aspects of camp. When you are with the cabin, you are responsible to be a help, not a hinderance to the Sr. Cabin leader. You are not another camper, you are staff. The expectation is for you to be involved in what your cabin is doing and to get to know your campers. You will be given time to hang out and have a break with your fellow Jr. Workers throughout the week so when you are with your campers, you need to be present with them.

TITLE: JUNIOR CABIN LEADER
REPORTS TO: Ministry Coordinator, Senior Cabin Leader
REQUIREMENTS: Must be completed grade 10 or higher. This position requires a short interview (about 15 minutes) which will be done over video chat. Once we receive your registration, we will reach out to schedule this with you.
During your volunteer week, you will be placed in a cabin with a Sr. Cabin Leader and 8- 10 campers for the whole week. Your role is to support the Sr. Cabin leader in the responsibility of caring for each camper in your cabin. The Sr. Cabin leaders will have the overall responsibility for the cabin and need your help to ensure each camper is cared for and having a good time. Building relationships with the campers, making sure they are safe and physical needs are met, getting cabin to activities and games on time are a few examples of the responsibilities each week. When the Sr is on a break you will have the opportunity to step up and offer leadership to the cabin during that time.
During camp program there will be games and activities that we will need help running. Jr. Cabin leaders will be given the responsibility to be a part in helping make those happen. This could be by leading your cabin through the game or being a role in the activity/game ex: Kangaroo Karaoke, Blindfold musical chairs, etc.)
We want each camper who comes to camp to see Jesus and have a good experience at camp. As a Jr. Cabin leader, you will be a main contact to the campers that come and therefore will be a key part in their experience at camp. Being positive and encouraging throughout the week with your campers makes for a great week. If your campers hear you complaining or if you are not participating in activities, then it will reflect on the campers experience. When you come for your week(s) of camp, make sure you keep that in mind.
