Camps cannot go ahead without volunteers.
In addition to hiring regular staff each summer, the camp board feels strongly that we need to have a number of teen and adult volunteers.
You can volunteer for ONE, a FEW, or ALL of the camps.
A CIT (Counsellor-in-Training) is 14-18 years of age, and they will be responsible for a small group of campers and making sure they know their whereabouts at all times. We need several CITs throughout the summer.
We also are committed to having Adult Leaders at each camp. We require 4 – 6 mature persons 19+ years of age. The more campers we have, the more leaders we need. This means a minimum of 24 volunteers are required throughout the summer. We trust that we will have a positive response again this year. Remember, camps will be cancelled if we do not have adequate adult supervision.
All volunteers are required to have a police records check done. This is for a volunteer position and will be free of charge with a letter from West Haven Camp. Volunteers must provided two character references, and be interviewed by a member of our Program and Leadership Development Committee. Training specific to being a camp leader will be provided.

Donations are Always Appreciated
West Haven is owned by the United Church of Canada and operated by a dedicated group of volunteers. It remains a challenge to find the money to keep the camp well maintained while keeping camp fees low enough so that camp is accessible to all youth who wish to come. All donations are very much appreciated.
