Youth Crew 2021 - a place for you!
Being part of Camp Spirit Youth Crew means practicing leadership skills, spending joyful and light-hearted time with children, connecting with other young leaders, learning from Camp Spirit Coordinators and Directors, deepening your faith and making a bit of money!
People entering Grade 9 in 2021 to Grade 12 are invited to apply to be part of Youth Crew 2021. The application asks you to share about leadership experience that you may have and your passion for working with children. Leadership experience is not required. Youth Crew is often the first focused setting where youth are trained and supported in practicing leadership skills.
Important Notes to read before applying:
- The Youth Crew Responsibilities and Duties are listed below.
- Applications are accepted until all of the Youth Crew spots are filled. There are limited Youth Crew spots, so please apply promptly.
- For the 2021 Camp Spirit season, Youth Crew Training will be in two locations - we request that all Youth Crew attend one of the trainings. Funding is available to support Youth Crew who need to travel in order to attend.
- If you have any barriers to filling out the Online Application Form, please email or call us.
Camp Spirit is fun for campers, and their leaders!
Being part of the Camp Spirit leadership team is an opportunity to Connect, Build, Create - and have fun while doing it.
CONNECT! Connect with other youth, adults and children in the United Church of Canada, perhaps in your home faith community or perhaps in places you have never been before!
BUILD! CREATE! Build and create with other staff people, programs for children that are inspiring and fun and make sure that each child feels like they are loved and honoured just as they are!
HAVE FUN! Have fun because well, it is a really great group of energetic, fun-loving, supportive people! You will learn a lot, you will be exhausted at the end of the day and you will bounce out of bed ready for a new day of amazing things! (o.k., maybe not bounce, but we are pretty sure you will be happy to be there!)
As a Youth Crew member, your responsibilities will include:
o Creating Visual art activities and sharing them with children
o Exploring Science with children
o Leading games in various settings
o Singing, creating dramas
Seth (shown left) was a CAMP SPIRIT Youth Crew member. This is what he says about his experience....
"Crew was fun because it had a nice sense of community - not only were we working together but we felt like a summer family! I liked meeting new friends, playing my guitar all summer, building connections, watching children play and have fun,
and creating this photo with Victoria!! "
Not only that, but Seth's experience as a part of the Youth Crew helped prepare him to join the Camp Spirit Summer Staff Team as a Music and Worship Coordinator!
