> Volunteers


Volunteers are an important part of our program!  Spending a week as a member of an Easter Seals camp is a unique opportunity to share your energy, your ideas and your strengths with kids who will, in turn, enrich your world. Every week we have between 1-4 volunteers join us at camp. 

Volunteers go through the same application process as camp staff do.

The Volunteer Program offered at a BC Easter Seals camp is composed of two types of experiences:

Community Volunteer Program: This program is for leaders within the community who want to come to camp to offer their skills, while growing and learning from our community. As a volunteer opportunity, Camp offers a wealth of skills and experiences that you will carry with you throughout life. Leadership, compassion, teamwork, creativity and commitment are valuable qualities in any employee - at camp you will demonstrate and develop these skills during your stay. For many staff and volunteers Camp is a stepping stone to careers in medicine, physiotherapy or occupational therapy, nursing, education, and recreation, to name a few.

Past Camper Volunteer Program: This program is designed for young leaders who have attended our summer camping program and ideally had some leadership training since their time at camp. If you've already been to camp, you know how amazing it is! This program gives you an opportunity to give back to kids in the same position you were and to develop your leadership skills. We've heard past camper volunteers say it feels like a busier week as a volunteer, but that they love being able to help with some of the 'behind the scenes' tasks that help make camp such an incredible experience for the current campers.
