Summer Camp Volunteer Leader

Are you passionate about being a witness of God's love to kids? Do you love spending time with kids? Do you love crafts, games and hands on activities? Then being a camp counsellor is for you! At Nativity, we host an annual summer day camp for students in grades one through five. Of course, we can't run this amazing camp without the help of our volunteer leaders!

This leadership opportunity is offered to anyone ages 15 and up. We work as a team to lead games and activities, make crafts, and teach elementary school students about the faith. Although a full day of camp can be tiring and feel like a big responsibility, they also bring so much joy and laughter. Leaders and campers spend time together, growing closer to God while having a blast!

This volunteer opportunity is also a place to grow. Many past leaders share that their experience as a leader helped them grow in confidence- gaining important soft skills such as patience and the ability to work with others. Does this sound like the right opportunity for you? Be sure to submit a volunteer application form and contact Courtney at youthminister@nativityym.com for more information.

COVID-19 Update:

We understand the importance of everyone's safety at camp. This year, all of our programming is created in compliance with the COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for: Day Camps. As such, we have several protocols in place, including:

  • No more than 20 children at camp

  • Investing in a tent so we can primarily be outdoors

  • The use of masks and physical distancing

  • Daily screening

  • Frequent hand-washing

  • No sharing of materials or food

As a team, we will work together to disinfect commonly touched surfaces, and set safe examples for our campers. We also strongly encourage that leaders receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine before camp starts.
