Past Camper Volunteers

This program is designed for young leaders who have attended a summer camping program and ideally have completed some leadership training since their time at camp. This is not an extension of the summer camping program, rather it is designed to offer young people who have demonstrated exceptional leadership potential opportunity to further develop and mature as leaders by taking on active volunteer roles during a week-long summer camping session. Individuals interested in this type of opportunity must apply online.

They will participate in the same interview as staff applicants. This is a rigorous process due to the nature of our program and the demands made on staff and volunteers to provide and ensure the highest possible camper care at all points. Applicants should also consider the following prior additional experience: community involvement, experience working with children, letters of reference from other related experiences and a personal letter of introduction. As there are limited Past Camper positions available each summer, we encourage young leaders to gain as much experience as possible from as many programs as possible.

We recommend perusing our website, including reviewing our Typical Day as a Volunteer and Volunteer Frequently Asked Questions pages before making the decision to apply. We would also suggest you check out our Community Volunteers page to get an idea of the responsibilities you may have at camp.

We strongly recommend that Easter Seals campers have participated in some form of leadership training, including gaining a summer’s experience volunteering or taking a leadership program at another summer camp, prior to applying to be considered for a volunteer opportunity. If you have questions about this program, please contact the Director at 604-873-1865 or 1-800-818-4483 or by email: camp@eastersealsbcy.ca. The minimum age for a past camper volunteer is 18 years old.
