Event Location:Camp Burton (Vashon Island)

It is time to start gathering the staff for this summer’s edition of Sickle Cell Camp.

We are making the deadline for applications earlier so we know we have the staff before we start recruiting campers.

Here is a link to the staff application.We have 14 staff spots available, so get your application in early for full consideration. It is possible we will have more applications than we have positions and will have to make some decisions about who will be on staff.

We are asking that people, who apply to be counselors, be available for the full time of the camp. It is difficult on the campers to have supervision that changes during camp. Please plan your schedules to be at camp from Friday until Monday noon if you wish to be a counselor.

We will have staff training on Friday, August 12th @ 8:30am. Please mark your calendars. Campers arrive the afternoon of August 15th and leave at lunch time of August 22nd. Camp will end around lunch time on Monday, the 17th of August.

If you are a first time volunteer, please complete all parts of the application AND distribute three copies of the reference form for people to complete and return to me. I need to receive the reference forms for your application to be considered complete.

First time volunteer applicants can expect a phone call from camp staff to go over expectations and requirements and make sure things are a ‘good fit’.

If you have any questions, please call Melanie Barnes at (253) 403-4823.
