Camp Volunteers

Volunteers are a vital part of the Anchor Summer Camp. They serve as counsellors, nurses, lifeguards, kitchen staff, cleaning staff and laundry staff.  They volunteer their time and talents, and they provide support and friendship to the participants.

Counsellors can sign up for one or two weeks. Counsellors will be paired up with a participant with special needs.

Counsellor Expectations
  • Must be a member of a Canadian Reformed or United Reformed Church (or other sister church)
  • 18+ years old (some exceptions may be approved)

Volunteers must display a Christian attitude in dress and conduct.  They also need to show enthusiasm and energy as they spend time with their participant at mealtimes, day trips, swimming, singing, sports/games, evening closing and bedtime.  At all times the volunteers must ensure the participants’ safety and enjoyment.
