Volunteer Duties

We rely on shared help from every family in order to ensure a smooth camp operation. We ask that each family select one or more of the duties below to help provide assistance. This may include any number of your family members including tweens and teenagers. A roster will be provided at camp with duties being allocated and spread across all families.

All camp duties are non-strenuous ones with cleaning of the toilet facilities provided by the school cleaners. Any help given lightens the load on the committee members who are parent and teacher volunteers and freely give their time to make this camp possible.
