Craft Corner Laughing

Calvin Crest relies on the service of up to 50 qualified volunteer counselors and child care assistants during each week of our summer programs. As having the most interaction with our guests, our volunteers are a vital part of the camping ministry at Calvin Crest.

Opportunities to Volunteer Include:
Cabin Counselor at our summer youth camps
Child Care Assistant (CCA) at our family camps

Cabin Counselor

    A camp counselor experiences camp with the students they are paired with and acts as a mentor for the week. They are in direct supervision of the students at all times. Counselors will stay in the cabins with their campers in the evenings. They are expected to be present and involved with the students at all camp activities. Campers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and the counselor should act in a sensitive and loving manner.

Child Care Assistant

    CCAs are assigned babysitters for the children attending Family Camp with their parents. They provide care each morning during the children’s program while the adults are at morning worship, and again in the evenings after family campfire. CCAs will stay all-together in cabins with supervisory Calvin Crest staff. They will be guided in providing overall support to our family camp program such as preparing tables before meals, helping run afternoon free-time activities, and offering assistance to families when needed. When not taking care of children, CCAs are offered daily bible studies, nightly games, and activities.
A desire to serve.
