Applications submitted to the camp by May 1 will take priority over those received later.

Important Note: Anyone 18 years and older must have a current police records check (no older than 2 years) on file at the camp prior to working on staff. If you do not have one, you must obtain one from your local police department and forward it to the camp. Some areas may take up to 6 weeks to process!

You need to give a pre-addressed stamped envelope (and reference form) to your listed persons of reference. You will not receive acceptance papers until we have a valid police check for you on file.

Financial Assistance

Even though all staff are volunteers, there are a few programs that may help students save money for fall educational expenses.

A Social Insurance Number is required.

Summer Missionary Assistance Program (SMAP) Anyone volunteering 3 weeks or more is eligible to participate by raising support. Gifts given toward this program qualify for a tax-deductible gift to the donor.
