Youth Volunteer Training
What does a Youth Volunteer do? Youth Volunteers help run program areas, they assist the Program Area Managers in setting up each day, running the sessions, helping cub scout with their games, crafts or whatever, and cleaning up the session area. Youth need to be in camp ½ hour before the beginning of the day, either at 7:30 am or 2:00 PM, depending on whether you are working AM or PM session.
Service Hours: You will receive service hours for time spent helping at Daycamp. This means you are expected to WORK to EARN these hours, they are not a gift. Youth who are unwilling to perform their jobs will be asked to leave.
Daycamp Uniforms: Your Daycamp uniform this year is an orange daycamp t-shirt, you can pick this up tonight. It is to be worn everyday. One t-shirt is provided, you may purchase more for $10.00 each. Other T-shirt colors: Bright Green - Staff; Turquoise Blue - Adult Volunteers; Light Blue - cub campers, Yellow - siblings.
Program Areas: Areas you can choose to work in (however, if we need you somewhere else you will be assigned accordingly).
Merit Badges: Work on two Boy Scout Merit Badges will be offered at daycamp this year. Thom Spratt will be working on the Traffic and Safety Merit Badge, and Mike Oftedahl will be doing a portion of the Communications Merit Badg.
Meals: Daycamp provides a meal for youth volunteers. However, if you are picky - bring your own lunch/dinner, we don't want to hear complaints that you don't like your free lunch! Also, Troop 321 provides a Snack Bar, selling drinks, candy, chips, etc.
Injuries and Medications: All medications must be registered and left with the Camp Medic, they must be in their prescription containers. The only exceptions will be those who need to carry an inhaler with them, or who suffer from life threatening allergies and carry an epi-pen. Any injuries, even a scratch must be reported to the Camp Medic.
Radios: YOUTH VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO CARRY PERSONAL RADIOS OR WALKIE-TALKIES!! These interfere with the radios that Staff uses to communicate. They will be confiscated and returned at the end of the day.
Parking: If you are driving yourself there is a $2.00 per day charge for parking at O'Neill Park.
