Recreation Volunteers: Our recreation volunteers are also known as Companions and Rovers, or Kids’ Camp Volunteers – as Kids’ Camps are where we need the most volunteers. Our recreation volunteers support our other programs, including Family Camps, Family Fun Days and Virtual Camps. Recreation volunteers are responsible for fostering fun and excitement in programs and supporting campers and fellow volunteers with encouragement and enthusiasm. This can include cheering on a camper as they tackle their first giant swing (after which they rave about the experience for the rest of camp), ensuring our iconic disco nights run smoothly (with plenty of snacks and impressive costumes), or supporting campers at the talent show as, together, you belt out a favourite song. This often results in plenty of smiles and giggles, and as we say – laughter is the best medicine.
Medical Volunteers: Our medical volunteer roles include doctors, registered nurses, endorsed enrolled nurses, and paramedics. Our volunteer Medical Teams support the health and safety of all program participants – this includes managing the first aid kit, ensuring compliance with our Medical Management Policy, supporting attendees with any medical concerns, distributing medication and administering first aid.
