VOLUNTEER

Volunteering 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 Staff Training Program.

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 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. If you are between the ages of 15 and 19 then you are able to sign up for the training program.

We will update our website to let you know when we will be accepting applications for our staff training program in 2022.

» Every Staff 19 person and older must have a Criminal Record Check (CRC) on record before stepping on Anvil Island. There are no exceptions to this rule.

» Every staff person must do a new CRC in 2021 There are no exceptions to this rule. 

» If you are a Canadian citizen the government of Canada has a free initiative to obtain your Criminal Record Check.  Simply click here to be taken to the website and enter the code that was emailed to you in your confirmation email after you registered as staff.  You will need your BC Services Card set up as a mobile card through the BC Government to complete your CRC online. All the steps required are outlined at the above address.

» If you are coming to serve at Anvil this summer and come from a country other than Canada, please go to your local police station and request a CRC there.

» Daybreak Point Bible Camp is not able to allow any individuals to be involved in the summer camping program without a valid CRC. Please begin the process immediately so as not to cause impediments to you serving at Daybreak.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the Daybreak office immediately.

If you need to complete your CRC in person at a police station, some municipalities require that your name is on the letter to receive the CRC.  Therefore, please print the below letter, fill in your name on the blank line, and take it to your local police station.

3. Important Documents

In preparation for the summer, we need you to read the following document. Whether it’s your first year or fortieth year at Daybreak Point Bible Camp, it is central to serving with us this summer. After you do, please take the time to pray for the staff, campers and parents who will be interacting with Daybreak this summer.

Please contact us by clicking here to ask any follow up questions in regards to our 2022 camps and our COVID-19 policies.

Where can I find a current copy of your COVID-19 policy?

Our COVID-19 policy can be found here

Will campers have to be vaccinated to attend?

Right now programs for children and youth do not require participants to be vaccinated; Anvil will adhere to all provincial restrictions and Vancouver Coastal Health requirements in place this summer.

Why do staff have to be vaccinated? I'm a volunteer!

Right now the provincial health orders require volunteer or unpaid staff that facilitate programs for children and youth to be fully vaccinated. We don’t know if/how these orders may change over the coming months and will be following closely as we adhere to all provincial restrictions and Vancouver Coastal Health requirements in place this summer.

Why only a $50 deposit, can I pay the whole amount now?

Coming soon!

What happens to my registration if the PHO does not authorize camps or limits how many people can attend?

Coming soon!

What will happen if there is an outbreak at Camp?

Anvil has protocols in place to respond to camper or staff illness including isolation and transportation off the island. As our pandemic experience in BC is changing, we will continue to revise these measures and layers of protection to ensure we are as up to date on the latest guidance this summer.

Can parents do the excursion again?

Right now visitors are not usually permitted to access programs for children and youth, but we will be monitoring these guidelines closely and provide updates about the parent excursion option closer to summer.

Can parents or former staff visit camp at all?

Right now visitors are not usually permitted to access programs for children and youth; we will provide more updates on if our usual excursion program on drop off or pick up day is possible closer to summer. 

Who can I contact to discuss these policies?

You can contact our admin (Shannon Fenton) here and she will assist you or direct you to the appropriate person. If you have questions about the Provincial Health Orders you can contact the Office of the Provincial Health Officer here.

References

We must have three references on file. Once your CRC has been received in the office (and if you are a new staff member your three references have been received) you will officially be a camp staff member! We look forward to you serving at Daybreak Point Bible Camp this summer.
