We Need Volunteers

As always, camp cannot proceed without your help. Here’s the list of volunteer positions we need to fill. Since we’re just getting started with the post-Paschal process of pulling everything together, most of the positions are red right now, indicating that we still don’t have anyone committed to filling those positions. Hopefully that will change significantly at tonight’s Camp Volunteer/Information Meeting at St. John’s (6:30pm)! If you are willing and able to volunteer for one of these positions – or if you know someone who might be willing and able to volunteer, please let our camp directors know (director [at] allsaintscamp.ca)!

Camp Info/Volunteer Meeting

Christ is risen!

It’s that time of year again… After Pascha and racing to get ready for camp!

Anyone interested in the camp, and especially in volunteering for this year’s camp is hereby invited to an informal informational volunteer meeting being held at St. John’s:

What? Camp Info/Volunteer Meeting
When? Tuesday, April 28th at 6:30pm
Where? St. John of Shanghai Orthodox Church (1967 Napier St., Vancouver)
Why? We need volunteers – and to get the word out that we’re working towards holding camp this year at Seven Springs again from July 7-12 (6-12 for volunteers)!

Room for more!

With less than 4 weeks until camp, we are super excited as we plan and prepare for another fun time at camp.  We have many wonderful volunteers who are getting ready to help our campers at camp.

At this time, we still need:

  1. a head Cook (with Food Safe certification) to lead the kitchen team.
  2. a lifeguard
  3. a few more male and female counsellors (the amount varies depending on how many campers sign up)

We also have space for some more campers, so sign your kids up now!

See you soon!

 

Can’t go to camp but still want to help?

Sadly, not everyone can be at camp, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t help make is a wonderful time for the kids.  Here are some ways you can help:

  • Pray for the safety and well-being of campers and staff who are at camp.  Pray that the campers will find their time spiritually edifying and beneficial.
  • Donate some money to help a camper who can’t afford to get their on his/her own.
  • Donate supplies for workshops (with the approval of the Camp Directors), or even simply suggest a great workshop idea!
  • Spread the word!  Tell everyone you know about camp. Campers and staff can both apply on this website!

Other items you might consider donating include:

  • “tuck” supplies
  • Small white Christmas lights
  • Hay bales
  • a garden Gnome
  • a trampoline
  • workshop supplies (please contact director for more information)
  • camping tent

Please contact the directors for more specific information on what donated items we need or can accept.

Thank you.

Camp can be fun for everyone!

The camp board strives to make camp fun, enjoyable, and accessible for everyone.  If you are a camper with special needs, let us know and we will try to accommodate you! Don’t let special needs keep you from having the time of your life this summer.

Feel free to contact your directors at director{at}allsaintscamp.ca to discuss how we can meet your needs.

Don’t forget to Apply for Camp!

If you are planning to be a camper this summer, or if you are sending campers, then this post has some important information for you!
