  • Arrive at 8:00 am every morning for the morning team meeting 

  • Sign in the children as they come, greet them and interact with the children of your small group to set the tone for the day

  • Accompany the children to all activities

  • Participate in all activities as helpers for the adult leaders and the children 

  • Help the children with social skills and activity skills, guiding and encouraging their participation. Note any concerns and share with the adult team

  • Make the camp a happy, positive experience  for the children!


  • Ages 13 – 18

  • Have a heart for children.  Some previous experience working with children is helpful

  • A positive attitude and a willingness to take part in everything 

  • It is not necessary that you be experienced in music, ukulele, dancing or art (that’s what the adult leaders are for) but you must be willing to join in doing and helping


You are an integral part of the camp and we could not do this without your wholehearted and enthusiastic participation!

Ms. Linnea and Ms. Betty-Ann
