Thank you for volunteering for one of the most rewarding weeks you will spend this summer! 

Faculty is about the opportunity to influence the life of a young person as they seek to follow Jesus, and God will use you to minister and walk alongside a young person as you give yourself to volunteering as Faculty at camp with us. 

You will find everything you need to complete for Joining the Faculty at your camp below. 

All paperwork will be uploaded to your CampBrain account by May 20th, 2019 at the latest. Paperwork not uploaded by this date will be considered outstanding and may impact your ability to attend camp. 

 

FACULTY INFORMATION

  • Faculty Children:
    • Faculty who have children attending as a camper will receive a $100 family discount.  Please complete your camper’s registration by paying the deposit, as well as your faculty application. Then contact Becca at the Camping Office to have the discount applied to your account.  
    • Faculty who have non-camper children with them at camp will be required to pay $75 for meals for each child.  Children 4 and under will be free. Please complete the Non-Camper Faculty Child Form and upload it to your account. This should be paid via cheque upon arrival.
  • Arrival:
    • Your camp director will provide information about arrival times.  Camp is a very busy place, and we have 3 camp programs operating at a time at Jackson’s Point.  We would ask that you unload your vehicle at the gate and carry your luggage and supplies in.  If you need assistance we will be more than happy to assist.  We ask that for safety you refrain from driving on the camp property, and appreciate you assisting us with the safety of our campers.
  • Program:
    • As you prepare your various programs you will notice many new program elements at camp including a GaGa ball pit, a Basketball Court, Equipment Shed, and we’ve moved ball hockey down to road to the old BBall location.  There will be opportunities to book those spaces for your group/cabins use exclusively in Coordination with the Blaze and the Timothy programs, and there will be lots of time for open use.  Please check the schedule at the equipment shed.
    • The Auditorium is newly renovated and the Dining Hall is newly painted.  It is stunning.  In your planning please do not put Tape of any form on the walls to help us maintain that look.
    • There is a new sound system in the Aud as well as a dedicated PC for use by camps.  The presentation software we are using is Easy Worship.  Please plan accordingly, and we would ask that wires are left where they were as it has been set up for optimal sound.
  • Purchasing:
    • All purchases for camp supplies must be vetted through your camp director.  They have been given a program budget, and we can’t pay for any expenses beyond that budget.  If you would like to donate your purchases then please keep the receipt, and we would love to give you a tax receipt for year end.  Please note that Salvation Army Policy has recently changed, and Gift Cards are not an allowable expense.  Don’t buy any gift cards as thank you gifts or for supply use.

 

More information will be shared during the first-night orientation.  Bless you, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us at the camp office.
