Thanks for offering your time to volunteer at Eastercamp 2017 - we're so thankful for the many helpful hands that make this thing happen! This year there are some changes to our volunteer processes, so keep reading for more info and to make sure you're in the right place/filling out the right forms/not signing your life away to some overseas army... just our 5 day event.

Do you have what it takes?
Crew MUST have a great work ethic, be able to handle responsibility, ooze initiative, be willing to serve in multiple areas and are chosen at the discretion of Camp Management who reserve the right to do cross-check references on your character, skill & suitability.
Due to regulations, we are required to police vett all EC Crew.
There's two kinds of volunteers this year:
a. Youth Group Volunteers - this year youth groups are required to supply a volunteer to help our different teams over the Easter weekend. Key Leaders will be asking you to be involved and giving you the information you need to sign up.
If you have been asked by a Key Leader, head to the form below and make sure you select 'Yes - I am representing our Youth Group as their volunteer' when it asks you. Your Key Leader should be able to answer any questions you have about this role.
b. General Volunteers - if you're not connected to a Youth Group but want to be involved, don't sweat - we might still have space for you! When you fill out the form below, make sure you click 'No - i'm not signing up as a Youth Group Volunteer' - it will require a bit of information from you to ensure we can check your references etc. Once you've completed the form, our team will process it and endeavour to be in contact with you within 7 working days.
While we'd love to have everybody involved who is keen - our teams fill up fast/some roles have required skills etc... we reserve the right to decline any applications.
This year there's a $40pp volunteer fee* - this is to go towards covering your kai and a few other bits and pieces at camp.
Also because Eastercamp is a camp - the status quo is that everyone including crew pitch a tent and camp communally
(*This fee is waved for some specialist or higher demanding roles)
