Volunteer!

Lumsden Beach Camp relies on the efforts of volunteers each and every summer. For each camp session, we require people to fill several positions. See the list of volunteer positions below. As incentive to volunteer, LBC offers a deduction of 50% on camper fees for volunteering.

When using online registration for your camper, please indicate that you would like to volunteer and we will be in touch about opportunities. Additionally, people who indicate that they are volunteering will be invoiced after their application has been accepted.

Who does the work "behind the scenes"?
+

Many people work each year on the Board and a variety of committees to make Lumsden Beach Camp happen each summer. We are parents, grandparents, students, and professionals. Some of us have been to camp since we were children, and others are new to the LBC community. We share a passion for camping and know the value that camp brings to people of all ages. Committees may meet infrequently or regularly. We are looking for skills in finance, fundraising, program, property, promotions, food and human resources. Let us know about your interests and your time commitment.

Email us at volunteers@lumdenbeachcamp.com for more information about available spots and what you can do to serve at LBC.

Volunteer Deduction

Volunteers are needed in many different capacities, and volunteer positions are eligible for a deduction of camper fees. For every camp, volunteers are eligible to deduct 50% off their child or grandchild's camper fees. It is not necessary to volunteer at the same camp your child attends to receive 50% off the registration fee. Volunteers under 16 years of age are not eligible for the volunteer deduction.

Non-Registered Children at Camp

Volunteers are able to bring their non-registered children to camp while volunteering.

  • All children of camper age must be registered for camp. Non-registered children must be immediate family of the volunteer who they normally provide care for (child, grandchild).
  • Each non-registered camper must have a completed medical form submitted to the medical personnel. All medications, including over-the-counter, medications must be stored in the medical cabin.
  • There will be a charge of $10 per day per child aged 10 years or older and/or each child over the maximum of two children, to cover room and board and/or child care cost, (the adult volunteer will have free room and board)
  • To allow the volunteer to fulfill their volunteer duties while having additional children at camp LBC will provide child care for children 10 years of age or younger.
  • Child care is provided for the time in which the volunteer is actively fulfilling their volunteer duties (i.e. working in kitchen, leading SCT, crafts, etc). It is the volunteer's responsibility to supervise the child at all other times
  • If the child is over 12 years of age, they may assist with a volunteer position.

Reminders for adults volunteering whose child is a registered camper

  • The child is a part of the camp community and the camp staff will be responsible for the camper.
  • Try to treat your child like you would treat all other campers.
  • Camp is an opportunity for campers to develop independence, adults volunteering should encourage their camping child to make new friends and participate in all camp activities.
