2020 Application Updates
Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening:
Volunteers who have received confirmation that they have been hired for the summer will need to provide Camp Quality with a Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening or an Offence Declaration.
NEW for 2020. Volunteers will be required to submit a Criminal Record Check – Vulnerable Sector Screening (CRC-VSS) every 3 years. If you are not required to submit one this year (see below), you will need to sign the Offence Declaration form which will be available on the volunteer dashboard in CampDoc.
New Volunteer (19+ Years): Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening.
Returning Volunteer, If CRC-VSS was submitted in 2017 or earlier: Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening.
Returning Volunteer, if CRC-VSS was submitted in 2018 or 2019: Offence Declaration Form.
All Volunteers must submit a copy of their immunization record using the volunteer dashboard on CampDoc. Once submitted, you will not need to re-submit in future seasons (unless future boosters are received). You will not be asked for medical information until placed in a camp session.
Medical Volunteers ONLY: In an effort to provide the safest care possible and to align ourselves with best practice guidelines. Medical Team volunteers that are actively working in a healthcare role will be required to submit a one-step TB test from the last 12 months.
We seriously couldn’t do it without you!
It takes a lot of big hearts and willing hands to keep up with so many vibrant, excited, deserving campers and their families. Our amazing volunteers support Camp Quality through both people-power and cost savings.
Camp Quality program volunteers are positive, caring adult role models focused on putting our kids and families first. Our widely diverse staff of amazing volunteers bring a wealth of worldly experience with them.
We are looking for individuals who can live in, work in, and thrive in a rustic outdoor environment, promoting healthy personal interactions with campers and staff, while also being positive role models. Volunteer staff members must consistently show enthusiasm for the program and our mission, be eager to try new challenges and, of course, be able to deal with a little conflict now and then. We are a team of playful professionals who put our campers’ needs before our own.
Camp Week Volunteers
There are many different camp week volunteer roles. Our camper companions are partnered with a camper for their time at camp, while other volunteers help out in the dining room and kitchen, at the waterfront, and at the many fun activities.
Camp Quality volunteer requirements:
18 years of age or older.
Able to provide a Background Check
Able to provide two character references.
Able to meet Medical Requirements (Immunizations)
Available for an interview.
Must attend a mandatory volunteer training session.
Camp Organizing Committee
The Camp Organizing Committee (COC) works diligently year-round to make camp week happen. In addition to organizing the summer programs, these dedicated volunteers plan family fun days and reunions year round. Please contact your local Camp Director for more information about COC roles and responsibilities, as well as information about available positions.
Camp Quality is only possible because of the comprehensive, individualized medical care thats is provided to each of our campers. We welcome a diverse group of medical professionals with experience caring for children with the medical conditions we serve. Paediatric clinical experience is preferred and preference is given to medical volunteers with experience and training in the diagnoses being served each session.
In their own words.
Any experienced volunteer will tell you that camp life is unquestionably, a truly rewarding experience. At the same time, it can be challenging. It will test an individual’s patience, flexibility, and privacy as well as take away much of the freedom we are used to in our daily life. But, volunteers at Camp Quality agree, it’s totally worth it!
“After spending one of the best weeks of my life with some of the most amazing kids I’ve ever met, Camp Quality is an experience that I would recommend to anyone. Trust me on this one.”
– Chris, Companion
“For me, the magic of Camp Quality is experiencing the joy of seeing a truly worry free and happy child. The camp’s one-to-one format makes it easy to focus on the individual needs and interests of the camper while developing a lasting friendship. My experience with Camp Quality has been one of the most memorable and rewarding ones of my life and I encourage any and all who wish to make a real difference to a child and their family to get involved. You won’t regret it!”
– Richard, Companion
If you think camp is just one week of fun, you’re missing tons of other opportunities to get involved!
We host camper only programs in the summer, but our work continues throughout the year with events, camp activities and behind-the-scenes administrative work. That means there are all kind of ways you can stay involved and volunteer with Camp Quality. We need every one of our diverse, multi-talented, energetic volunteers to keep things running without a hitch. The Camp Quality Canada National Office would love to work with you. With administrative, fundraising and special event opportunities, you can volunteer to help us out at a one-day event, or over time.
To learn more about how you can volunteer at an event or in the administrative office, please call 1-866-738-8011.
