How to Volunteer
At Camp Teepee Pole all of our staff are volunteers. This includes the need for cooks, maintenance staff, registration & administration, speakers, and of course, the counsellors.
The next step, is to fill out a staff application using our new online application form.
Keeping Everyone Safe
There are four items that are required from all of our staff.
Second, all new staff, or those that have been away for a few years, will need to provide references. We will contact those references to inquire as to the suitability of the volunteer for the given position.
Third, all staff must provide police information checks (PIC). This applies not only to new staff, but existing staff will need one every five years. If you already have a PIC from another position (say your church or school), you do not need to repeat it, you can simply send us a copy. Otherwise we can provide a letter which will lower, or even waive, the fee required by the police. You will need to pay the fee up front, but will be able to claim it as an expense with the camp.
Finally, all staff must complete an online training course entitled “Commit to Kids.” Just like the PIC, this will need to be done every five years. There is no cost to this (that is no cost to the volunteer, the camp pays a fee). If you have done this course for another position (say your church or school), you do not need to repeat it, you can simply send us a copy of your certificate.
