Volunteer Role Descriptions

Camp Dragonfly is seeking applications for the following volunteer roles:

 

Camp Counselor - responsible for small camper groups and gets involved in all camp-wide activities, leading camp wide activities 

Social worker/therapist/psychologist – lead and facilitate a support group for caregivers and parents 

Workshop leader - lead an activity at camp (about 1 hour) - looking for folks to lead body movement of any kind, nail art, and a scavenger hunt

Kitchen team - help our cook with the Community Dinner

Please note:

- Volunteers must be age 18+ at the start of camp.

- Other than workshop leaders, all volunteers are at the entire camp and all of training (during COVID, those not from Edmonton could volunteer for just the online portions).

- Volunteers will be required to get a criminal record and vulnerable persons check paid for by Camp Dragonfly.

- Returning volunteers must reapply each year and are not guaranteed a spot.

- Volunteers may stay in the same role for 3 years (excluding online years) at which point they will 'retire' and become alumni or apply in a different role. This helps give lots of folks a chance to experience Dragonfly and builds in knowledge succession between volunteers. Exceptions may be made for difficult-to-fill roles. 

- Camp prioritizes Two-spirit, trans, genderqueer, and non-binary volunteers.
