VOLUNTEERVolunteering at Daybreak Point Bible Camp is an incredibly rewarding experience, and a huge part of our ministry. Below you will find all the information you need to apply for camp along with information about our brand new Staff Training Program taking place in Summer, 2021.
Serving at Anvil
Thank you for your interest in serving at Daybreak Point Bible Camp on Anvil Island this year! Our process for serving has changed. Please ensure you follow the steps carefully. You must first apply to be a staff member by sending in the form below to the director of the camp you wish to volunteer at this summer. After you have received confirmation from them that you are on staff then you can fully register as a staff member for Daybreak. If you register without receiving approval from the director first your registration will be cancelled.
The Director must have enough time to review your application and the office to make sure everything is processed properly. If you are unsure as to which camp would be the best fit for you please contact the office.
Welcome to Our Brand New Staff Training Program!
Have you ever wanted to serve during a week of camp in the summer? Have you become to old to be a camper but want to keep attending camp?
This summer is your opportunity to take a unique staff training course. Unique because it will be for all camps so you will meet people from each of the camps and unique because it won’t be on the island, but will have an island component. If you are between the ages of 15 and 19 then you are able to sign up for the training program.
We will be accepting applications to our Staff Training Program until July 11th at midnight. Please apply today!
July 26th-27th + 29th-30th (7:00pm – 9:30pm)

- Is this for camps 1-9?
Yes, we are combining all the staff training programs in to one for this summer.
- If I take this training will I have to take another staff training program for my specific camp?
No, this would be your staff training. Each director may have some supplemental things for you to do the following summer, but this would be you training.
- If I take this training will I be guaranteed a spot on staff the following summer?
No, as with all camp training programs there is no guarantees. You need to complete the program and maintain your spiritual walk with the Lord along with moral and responsible behaviour. Camps also fill up quickly with staff, so no guarantees. However, the directors of all camps are behind this program and would consider you as a staff member having taken the course.
- Do I have to attend in person?
We would like people in person, however, if you live outside the lower mainland we may be able to have you join us on zoom for the training. Details will be worked out for those out of town.
- Do I have to attend the on island session?
Yes, we would like you to attend the on island session. We are aware of health regulations and covid protocols, but if you can attend we would like you to attend.
- Why does it cost money?
The fees cover registration, handbooks, materials, water taxis to get us on and off the island.
