Camp Cedarwood is still in need of roughly 10 staff members to sign up for the summer months, as well as a few more volunteers.
"Campers get to do a lot of activities," says Sarah Wolfe, the Summer Camp Director. "We have kayaking, and basketball, we're hoping to do a soccer skill and ukelele. We try to do things that are sporty but also things that are artsy for the different kids that come.
As a Bible-based summer camp, the time kids spend at Cedarwood isn't just activities but time spent in the Word of God and what that looks like for campers.
"In the morning we have a devotional time where we have a discussion about the gospel and in the evenings we have a program where we sing some songs, talk, and watch a video that is around the topic of the day."
The camp is located roughly an hour and a half of driving time from Winnipeg.
"Staff training begins on June 1 and the end of the summer for staff is August 24."
They are looking for support staff and counsellors to be and lead the campers. Cedarwood also needs nurses and/or medical staff to help each week, and that can look like a health care professional offering their services for one week.
"Usually we like our counsellors to be out of school, so 18, but I'll accept a grade 12 student if they're mature in their faith and ready to serve. In other positions like kitchen and maintenance, it's 16 and up."
For older teenagers and young adults, spending an entire summer at camp can increase their resume as well as provide a life-changing experience.
"It provides an opportunity to have some long-lasting, deep friendships where you're serving together. Even just the support of praying for each other, the spiritual aspect of things, having people that are like-minded, encourage you and help out, and sharing the gospel, those are some benefits."
Wolfe says the latest people can fill out a staff or volunteer form is June 8, 2022. Forms can be found on the Camp Cedarwood website.
