How Can I help?

Stepping Stones Summer Bible Camp is always looking for volunteers. We have a variety of volunteer positions. Although most of the positions run from Monday morning through Saturday, there are some that are part-time as well. Each position is challenging, fun, rewarding and open for application!

Prayer Support

Many people cannot come to camp each summer, but continue to pray for Stepping Stones. We firmly believe that to run a camp we need, above all, your prayers.

Counselors

Counselors lead devotions, encourage and mentor campers, and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with their campers. They work in pairs and have a ‘cabin pack’ of about six campers in their care. Most agree that Counselors have the best job at camp!

Counselors work closely with the staff to meet the needs of their campers by coaching, encouraging and building friendships with them. In order to become a counselor, applicants are required to fill out a written application form, attend an interview if necessary and participate in counselor training.

It is a Stepping Stones policy that every volunteer must submit a police check prior to volunteering at camp. This is an important and necessary precaution to help ensure the safety of the children who come to camp. This information is found at the end of the Counselor application form.

Find out more information on the Counselor page.

Cooks and Kitchen Helpers

Every week during the summer, there are over 100 people who love their cooks dearly!  You can come to camp with your husband or wife (who could also help with some of the maintenance work while he’s there!), teen-aged children, friends or colleagues for this very rewarding opportunity to cook. Each team of cooks  will be given a weekly menu that they will work with for their week at camp. Stone and Rock weeks  will have kitchen helpers to assist with the preparation and serving of meals. Kitchen helpers must be at least 14 years old to apply (16+ for Rock weeks). To apply, click here to fill in a Food Services Application Form! If you have any questions, please contact us at cooking@steppingstonesbiblecamp.ca.

Nurses

To all of you nurses out there we invite you to camp for a week, band-aids in hand. You will be on staff to care for the needs of campers and counselors. As nurse you will be given the medical history of the campers and medications that may need to be taken. Nurses have a great opportunity to be involved in camp activities and fun. For more info or to volunteer, email: nursing@steppingstonesbiblecamp.ca

Lifeguards

Swimming is a favourable activity for most campers and counselors at camp. Most weeks we spend two afternoons at a pool and a day trip out to a local beach. Most lifeguards come as counselors and stay the whole week. However, if you can’t commit for the week, than a day or two as needed would be great. Need at least Bronze Cross qualifications.

Bus Drivers

Each week many swimming trips are made. The buses are used to transport the campers to the pools and beaches. Bus driving is a flexible position and all events needing a bus driver are planned in advance, allowing bus drivers to commit for one way, a round trip, or a week.

Chaplain

The role of chaplain is very rewarding. Our goal is to provide Stepping Stones with motivated, energetic men who understand the mission of our camp and are able to provide the spiritual encouragement and leadership needed for their week. You must be able to relate and interact well with the age group present at camp and promote and foster further understanding and insight into God’s Word which adheres to our Reformed doctrines and principles.

Financial Support

Stepping Stones is a non-profit organization, and dependant upon charitable donations for its operation. You can help by sponsoring a child’s participation at camp. Find out more here.
