Volunteer

Hands-on volunteers are needed for a variety of projects at GENEVA, and contribute immeasurably to GENEVA's ministry. There are opportunities to help carry out the summer program, maintain the facilities, tackle special projects, and to support programs throughout the year. We welcome both individuals and groups, for one-time projects or onling opportunities. If you are interested and/or would like more information, please call 616.399.3150 or email Sherry.

Some of the ways you can help include the following: 

Camper Check-in Volunteers:
 
Throughout the summer we need people every Monday morning to help campers check in for camp. You can help pass out nametags, direct campers to their cabins, or help park cars. (2 hours/week, mid June-mid August)  

Campers with Special Needs:

Throughout the summer, Camp Geneva will have a number of campers who have physical or cognitive challenges and need a little extra attention to make it possible for them to participate in the camp program. These children may have Autism, Down's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, or simply need help focusing. Your special attention can enable these campers to join in the camp activities and have a week filled with fun, laughter, recreation, and opportunities to learn about the love of Christ. Individuals must be at least 17 years old. Please email Sherry at sherry@campgeneva.org to request a Volunteer Application Form.

Spanish Language & Culture Week (July 11-15, 2016):
 

Spanish Language & Culture Week is a component of our Day Camp program. Volunteers are required to have mastery of the Spanish language. Individuals must be at least 17 years old. Please email Sherry at sherry@campgeneva.org to request a Volunteer Application Form.

Grounds Maintenance:
 
Keeping up with the camp program is a major task for our staff throughout the summer. Volunteers who enjoy working outside can greatly assist by helping to cut the grass or maintain the landscaping a few hours each week. (2 to 3 hours per week, May-October) 

 

Skilled Labor:
 
GENEVA also needs the gifts of people who are skilled in hands-on work like plumbing, electrical, carpentry, and cement work.  (4-8 hours per day, September-May)
