How to Apply to Volunteer for Camp Weeks

Please read these instructions carefully and fill out the application form.

Phone Interview

After we receive your application, we will contact you to schedule a phone interview. If you’ve volunteered with us before, it’ll be a shorter call.

Confirmation

Upon acceptance, you will be contacted to confirm your shifts. If you do not confirm by the appropriate date, your spot will be made available to someone on the wait list. As part of the confirmation process, you will be asked to fill out and return four documents: The Volunteer Shift Agreement, Code of Conduct Agreement, Assumption of Risk, and Media Release. These formed can be signed at the volunteer orientation. We will also have extras on the first day of camp.

Criminal Record Check

Because our work involves minors, all volunteers must undergo a criminal record check, this process is now free and is processed through the Criminal Records Review Program. You cannot volunteer without the completion of this background check! More information will be provided during your phone interview.

The Volunteer Handbook

You will also be emailed a handbook that contains additional information about your position and how camp works in general. This is full of helpful information. Please read!

Orientation & Training

We have a three hour mandatory orientation and training session offered in two sessions:

Please consider these sessions the first day of your volunteer shift. We will cover all up-to-date information on maintaining a safe and fun camp, including: teaching strategies, troubleshooting, and what to expect on the first day. This is also a time when volunteers get to know each other. If you are coming from out of town and have never volunteered with us before, you will need to arrive in Vancouver by Saturday morning. Volunteers who absolutely cannot be present for the volunteer orientation need to notify the volunteer coordinator ahead of time.

Accommodations for Out of Town Volunteers

We are not able to provide accommodations for volunteers. However, we may be able to help you find a local host. When you confirm your ability to volunteer with us, you will have a chance to request a host, and we’ll do our best to find one for you.
