We are blessed with many people who serve God through volunteering their time at Campfire. the opportunities to share your gifts and talents are varied and can be offered throughout the year. If you have a willing heart, there is a way for you to help at Campfire! Listed below are some of the regular positions we need filled through the summer months. We could not run camp without you.
As a counsellor or CIT at Campfire! you play an important role in making a camper's experiences enjoyable and memorable. It is an incredibly fun and rewarding experience. You won't regret it! The commitment is from 7:00pm on Sunday night to Friday afternoon. Counsellors must be 17 to apply (20 for Wilderness Week). There are a lot of questions from potential volunteers around being a counselor. We will do our best to answer them all. Please don't be afraid to contact us.
Gather an eager group of people, like maybe your Bible study group, to come up for a weekend or a day to beef up our trails or maybe build/work on special projects.
In between the weeks we run during the summer, we love to have our facilities receive a thorough cleaning to prepare our property for the next batch of campers and counsellors. Perhaps you can round up your youth group, Bible study or friends and come on up for a Saturday to help spruce up camp!
Every week, a new team of cooks works hard to make sure that campers, volunteers and staff are well-fed and satisfied. We love the cooks! Cooks generally start Sunday evenings and leave after closing on Fridays.
Are YOU a loving and caring adult? If so, we have a job for you! Come to Campfire and put your mom/dad/grandma/grandpa/aunt/uncle skills to work and be a Camp P.A.L.S.! We have revamped the Camp Mom position to include the usual duties, plus a few more - including but not limited to assisting the Staff, being a floater/gopher, light cleaning, laundry, miscellaneous tasks, interaction with campers throughout the day, helping create a homey and familiar environment for campers, and helping homesick campers. Two will be needed every week of camp, so sign up with a friend or a spouse!
In order to be safe, we need lifeguards for our swim times at Wasaga beach and also in our pool! Lifeguards usually also work as a counsellor or cook. If you'd like to be our lifeguard, please apply as either a counsellor or cook and select lifeguard certification in the skills section.
If you are handy and love to build or fix things that have broken, this could be your opportunity to serve! Come for a week during the summer and help keep camp's property in tiptop shape for the campers! And if we run out of things to be built or fixed, you could always help peel potatoes in the kitchen.
We have a Head Nurse who is at Camp from Sunday until Tuesday, but we also need a Nurse of the week, who is there from Sunday evening until Friday afternoon. Are you able to volunteer for a week this summer? Please note that this is a paid position!
