VOLUNTEER:

SpringHill week provides multiple opportunities for individuals to serve the staff and campers! If you would like to help out by being a host home, activities helper, special forces (6th-8th grade), counselor in training (CIT, 9th-12th grade), staff lunch prep, or registration, please click the link below and let us know how you would like to serve.

Registration Volunteer

On Monday, registration volunteers help us process registration quickly and efficiently. You will be stationed at tables and help parents and campers through the check-in process as quickly as possible. This is an excellent opportunity to give parents and children a great first impression of our church! This is a very short time commitment, but has a huge impact as it begins the camp experience for each child. We will need your help from 8:15 to 9:30am on the opening day of camp.

Host Home

A host home houses 2-5 SpringHill staff during the week of camp. They will provide dinner on Monday and Wednesday and a light breakfast throughout the week. Staff will arrive on Sunday evening before camp and will leave on Sunday or Friday following camp. Our staff have their own transportation during the summer, and host homes will not be asked for rides. If SpringHill staff are staying the weekend in a host home, the host family is not expected to entertain them, rather we encourage our staff to get out of the house and do things together on weekends.

Party Host

Staff gathering hosts are families who are willing to open their home on Tuesday or Thursday night for our staff to gather for worship, dinner and fun. The staff gathering hosts may choose to host both nights or just one of the nights. You will feed our team and allow us to use their backyards or living rooms for gathering. The staff will stay from 6:00pm to approximately 9:00pm. Our staff members are fun-loving college students so they always appreciate places that have pools, lawn games, or indoor game rooms.

Activity Helper

The Activity Helper role provides a great opportunity for adults to engage with campers throughout the week of camp. We will schedule them to help with different activities throughout the days they are available, assisting with tie dye, large group games, and set-up/tear-down of activities. These volunteers are typically adults who would like to be involved in the activities of camp. You do not have to be available to volunteer every day, but due to the time it takes to provide training, we request that you sign up for at least two days.

Counselor In Training (CIT)

A CIT is someone 14 years or older whose job it is to build relationships with campers and assist SpringHill counselors by working with the same group of campers for the entire week. This will include playing GWAPS (Games With A Purpose), singing songs, helping with activities, and talking with kids about what they’re learning about God. We love CITs that have a lot of energy, are service-minded, and love Jesus! CITs are expected to attend a training on Sunday before camp and will be part of the team’s morning devotionals.

Special Forces

Our special forces team is much like our CITS, but for our 6th-8th grade students. They will help with special tasks, encourage counselors and staff, participate in Large Group sessions, and be available wherever they are needed throughout the week.
