Short-term Crew

Serving for a single camp, or multiple camps

Volunteer Opportunity

This summer we a flexible solution for those who want to serve at camp but can’t commit to the full session. 

You’ll be part of the crew that makes camp possible, and we know you’ll have a tonne of fun working together.

  • You can serve for as little as 1 week of camp. If you can join us for 2 weeks or the whole session that is even better!
  • You have a heart to serve and support Young Life’s mission to introduce teens to Jesus and encourage them in life, and you want to grow in your faith too. 
  • Previous experience is helpful but not required in all roles. Training provided.
  • You’ll arrive between 2-4 pm on arrival day for training and setup
  • You’ll leave after 4pm on departure day to help with our changeover for the week

Yes, it will be work, but there’s a big payoff — changed lives — yours, your new friends and the teens you bless.

Can I bring friends?

Sure! Everyone needs to apply on their own, so be sure to note your group info when applying.


Is this family friendly? It can be. Your kids must be 16+ (some exceptions for experienced 15 year olds) and able and willing to fully volunteer in a role as well. Due to housing requirements everyone will sleep according to their roles, age and gender, which may mean families are apart during their stay and your meal times may vary. The focus is on serving well individually but the shared experience can be invaluable!
