Avenue Road Baptist Church has offered fun and inclusive day camps for children in our community for many years. Last year was our first year doing 6 weeks of camp, and the summer was a huge success - we had over 100 kids participate!

We will be offering two types of camp - 4 weeks of Vacation Bible Camp, which will include Bible stories, games, crafts, and lots of other activities, plus 2 weeks of Sports Camp, which will emphasize learning skills in different sports (like badminton, soccer, basketball, etc.) each day of the week, as well as including other activities. In the middle of the summer, there will be a week to pause from camp for staff to regroup and reset for the final weeks.

Camp Leaders will work with the Camp Co-ordinator and Youth & Family Pastor to run full-day camps. You will serve as cohort leaders, guiding a set group of children around to each part of their daily schedules, and/or activity leaders, teaching and helping children participate in games, crafts, sports, music, Bible stories, and other activities.

Key Responsibilities:

1. Look after children throughout the day, either in your cohort or at your activity station. Help them learn new skills, resolve conflicts, and gain confidence. Develop caring and trusting relationships with campers.

2. Work collaboratively with the Camp Co-ordinator, fellow Camp Leaders, weekly volunteers, and Youth & Family Pastor to keep everything running smoothly.

3. Ensure equipment and facilities are kept safe, organized, and clean.

4. Lead activities according to gifts and interests, as well as activities less familiar to you.
