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.

If you have never been up to Camp before as a staff member, or just need a refresher, please take a minute to review Daybreak’s general camp rules and information here.

Before You Apply…

i. Minimum staff age for junior camps is 16 years of age unless a staff member has completed a camp certified training program. Junior camps may run staff training programs for staff aged 14-17. 14 year olds must be 14 by June 30 of the current camping year. Each Director will always have the final approval of all staff members attending their camp

iii. Minimum staff age for senior camps is 21 years of age unless a staff member has completed a camp certified training program. Senior camps may include 19-21 year olds in their staff training programs. Each Director will always have the final approval of all staff members attending their camp.

Staff Training Programs

At Daybreak Point Bible Camp we believe in training up the next generation of Leaders through our staff training programs. We are excited to offer staff training programs at some of our week-long camps. You can contact each director at their email above to ask questions about their leadership training program or click on the links above to apply to the programs.

Each week is very limited as to how many people they can accept into their program so an application is not a guarantee you will get a spot this summer. 

If you have any questions about the program, please do not hesitate to reach out to our office!

2. Criminal Record Check

» 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 2024 unless you did a CRC with us in 2023. 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.

4. 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.

Please click on the button below for our reference link to complete or to send to someone to complete.

Thanks for taking the time to be a reference for one of our volunteers. Your reference is one part of our staff screening process that helps us make the best decisions possible about our volunteer staff. We sincerely appreciate your consideration. If you have any additional comments please do not hesitate to contact the office confidentially through admin@anvilisland.ca

Thanks!

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. Therefore, no, campers do not need to be vaccinated.

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?

Yes! We are excited to welcome parents and guardians to join us on the excursion this summer. We will be sending out an email with important details about camp and it will include instructions for the excursion.

Can parents or former staff visit camp at all?

Yes, you can join us on the excursion to drop off and or pick up campers!

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.
