Here are three ways you can be a part of camp:

1. Volunteer

Camp Week (24 hours for 6 days, Fri-Wed):
Each camp staff is made up of volunteers who give of themselves each summer to invest in the lives of hurting children. Volunteers must be 18 or older and have a heart for sharing God’s love with hurting kids. A volunteer can be assigned to one of two main roles.

  • Counselors:  The primary role of a counselor at RFKC is to care and cheer for their campers as they walk alongside them through the daily activities of camp. Each counselor is assigned two campers and a buddy counselor for the week. Together, the two counselors and their 4 campers, enjoy all that camp has to offer. They share the excitement of their own cabin, meals together at the dining hall, swimming at the pool or lake, creative projects, special evening events, as well as music, drama, and puppet presentations. Counselors have the special privilege of building close relationships with their 2 campers. The counselor role requires energy, patience, love, and a willingness to look beyond your own needs in order to wholeheartedly serve the children in your care.
  • Staff:  The main role of the staff at RFK Camp is to 1) participate in camp programs and activities and 2) support the counselors by assisting them throughout the day and caring for the kids. Specific jobs include leading music, taking photos or video, setting up crafts and activities, leading group games, fishing, woodworking, providing extra help at swimming, and participating in the drama. Staff volunteers get to know many of the campers as they interact with them at different activities. They also assist in Treating our Children Royally and Making Moments Matter. The staff role requires a servant’s heart, flexibility, patience, love, and a willingness to be a self-starter and hard worker as you look for opportunities to contribute and encourage others throughout the week.
