What's Included

-We are happy that you are interested in serving as a volunteer at Camp Agape NW (CANW), a weeklong camp for children with cancer and their families. Not only will your time as a volunteer create a wonderful experience for the families you serve, it will also be a rewarding experience for you. CANW gives children with cancer a chance to feel normal, siblings a chance to feel special, and parents a time to be together. This application is for those who have no prior volunteer experience at Camp Agape NW. -Every complete application is read and considered. It is our intention to select the best possible volunteer crew and to give as many volunteers as possible exposure to CANW. Selections are based on willingness to serve, qualifications, experience, and camper demographics, and those who are available the whole week. The minimum age to apply is 15, however counselors must be 17. The Leadership Committee of CANW holds the right to select volunteers based on the needs of the camp and the families for each year. -The demographics of camp each year determine what volunteers are needed to best serve the families. To the best of our ability we will match the number of volunteers accepted to the number of predicted campers. Once this number is reached, potential volunteers will be placed on a wait list and if willing, may be put on an “on-call” status and some of these volunteers will be called as camp is closer. It is our desire to find a spot for everyone who wants to serve at Camp Agape NW; however we are restricted by space at the camp grounds. - Please note there is a $20 non-refundable application fee. If this fee is cost-prohibitive please contact us @ campagape@gmail.com - Applications after the 4/15 deadline will be put on the waitlist. - Note that a national background checks is included in the application fee. - You will receive an email by May 31st from campagape@gmail.com. This email will let you know your volunteer status.
