Summer Camp Volunteer
We are looking for volunteers to serve as a part of summer camp. Specifically, we need people to spend a week or more (Sunday afternoon till Friday afternoon) serving as a counselor or certified lifeguard. We ask that you are over the age of 17 and you will be compensated depending on your position!
All campers in summer programs are in Covenant Harbor’s legal care. Every volunteer counselor and volunteer lifeguard must complete the following application steps and be approved before arriving at camp:
1. Complete this volunteer application
2. Please send this link to three references and ask them to complete the form. (Covenant Harbor alumni staff from 2019-2021 only need two references.)
Once you have submitted your volunteer application, the Youth Ministry staff will contact you to complete the remaining steps:
3. Phone conversation with Youth Ministry staff
4. Clear a background check
5. Confirm date/arrival time
In addition to Covenant Harbor’s summer camp staff needs, we continue to welcome volunteer help with maintenance and grounds, guests relations, serving meals, donor relations and more.
Opportunities to serve vary in time and skill, and you can volunteer once, here and there or on a consistent or regular basis. There are volunteer opportunities for everyone including groups, students, families and adults.
If you are interested in serving as a general volunteer at camp, please complete this online form.
Your volunteer hands have been so appreciated and have helped keep camp running this year – and there are still more work projects to be done! We are excited to announce the next two upcoming volunteer days! Join us Saturday, July 31 and/or September 18. Work projects for July 31 will be mainly grounds improvement and upkeep projects. September 18 will focus primarily on tearing down the waterfront.
For July 31, limited overnight housing is available and only a bagged lunch will be provided (no breakfast). No childcare will be available. Additional details for September 18 will be coming soon.
Will you join us Saturday, July 31 or September 18, or both, for a summer believe.love.serve. workday?
