Freedom's Youth Summer Program is an opportunity for students in high school who are able to come and help at Malcolm’s Camp for a couple of weeks over the summer. In the Youth Summer Program, students will continue to develop their leadership skills in a camp setting. The Youth Summer Program is a great opportunity for students to gain valuable, life-long leadership skills and complete their volunteer hours for school.

Letter of reference from a pastor.
Must attend a Plan to Protect training session on Friday, May 11 from 6:30-8:30pm

WHAT DOES A YOUTH VOLUNTEER DO?
A Youth Volunteer's role is to offer support and help to the staff, leaders, children and parents at Malcolm’s Summer Day Camp. If something needs to be done, a trusty Youth Volunteer will get it done. No job is too big or too small for a faithful Youth Volunteer.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIRED TRAINING SESSIONS FOR BECOMING A YOUTH VOLUNTEER?
There will be a MANDATORY training session before camp begins for all Youth Volunteers. This is necessary, because we want to make sure that all of our volunteers are trained and prepared by becoming familiar with camp rules and protocols. Also, we want all our Youth Volunteers to be aware of what is expected from them at camp.
HOW DO I BECOME A YOUTH VOLUNTEER?
In order to become a Youth Volunteer you must apply. Fill out an online application form and have your Pastoral Letter of reference to Miss Margaret no later than Monday April 9, 2018.
There are limited spaces in the Youth Volunteer summer program. Priority will be given to students who attend Freedom Church on a regular basis and show leadership potential. Next priority will be given to former Malcolm’s Summer Camp JLTs who have previously demonstrated leadership potential and who the camp staff deem suitable for such a program. All others are welcome to apply. We will accept applications from those who have not previously been involved in Malcolm’s Camp, however they will need to complete the application process as well as have an interview with the Camp Director and Children’s Program Director.
We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018 summer program. The deadline to apply was Monday April 9, 2018.
