Camp WaMaVa relies on dedicated volunteers to serve each week in the roles of Kitchen Assistants, Bible Program Facilitators, and Camp Nurse. On-site housing and meals are provided.
Bible Program Facilitators - The primary function of Bible Program Facilitators is to supervise the campers during morning Bible time and conduct the Bible lessons/activities. Facilitators work in tandem with WaMaVa admin staff during our morning Bible Time. Each day, we will have a theme passage of Scripture and a theme activity that each camper will experience. Facilitators and admin staff will split into groups and rotate the campers through stations where they hear a lesson and participate in activities. Lessons and activity materials will be prepared ahead of time by WaMaVa staff and board members. Your job is to help facilitate the plan.
Kitchen Assistants - These folks work under the Kitchen Chief to prepare meals for the camp within the Virginia Dept of Health's safety guidelines.
Camp Nurse - Nurses are in charge of all medical determinations at camp: administering medication (after meal times and before bed), treating sickness/injuries, calling parents of sick/injured campers, and transporting campers to urgent care or the hospital.
Additional Volunteer information can be found in the Volunteer Handbook.
