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 for our most needed positions (medical, assistant cook, maintenance, childcare (if needed). LBC offers a deduction on camper fees for volunteering. There may also be other volunteer positions available. Please get in touch with us if you would like to offer your time or skills to LBC.
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.
To ensure the safety of our campers, all volunteers are required to submit an application and a criminal record check.
Please fill out this form. Once we review your application someone will be in touch. If you do not hear from an LBC representative or have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org or (306) 510-6135
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, property, promotions, food and human resources. Let us know about your interests and your time commitment.

Volunteers are needed in many different capacities, and volunteer positions are eligible for a deduction of camper fees. Adult volunteers are eligible to deduct $30/day of volunteering off their child or grandchild's camper fees. It is not necessary to volunteer at the same camp your child attends to receive this deduction. Volunteers under 16 years of age are not eligible for the volunteer deduction.
Volunteers are able to bring their non-registered children to camp while volunteering.
