Please only use this form if you have either previously volunteered on one of our camp programs, or have completed one of our New Volunteer Training Days and submitted a volunteer application form and are now eligible to volunteer on a camp.
If you are new to ERC VIC and would like to register your interest to volunteer with us, please instead complete the form:
Volunteer Expression of Interest with Edmund Rice Camps Victoria, found by clicking this link:
If you want to sign up for more than one camp, you will have to fill out the form more than once.There must be at least a week or two between camps attended, this is to ensure that there is plenty of energy on each camp and to allow a position for all volunteers to be able to access camps. For instance, if applying for 2 camps over summer, there must be at least a week break in between camps. As Autumn, Winter and Spring camps occur either concurrently or a week apart apply for only your preferred camp but advise if available for the alternate camp.This restriction does not apply for either of the long weekend camps as there are no camps either side.
Camp Executive Roles:If you would like to take on an exec role (Group Leader/Support Leader, Camp Captain, Camp Coach or Pastoral Facilitator) you will need to have completed an 'Exec Training Day'. All exec members must also be available to come to the Pre & Post camp exec meetings.
For information regarding upcoming 'Exec Training' days please contact the ERC Office using the information below.
If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Suzannah Siddles: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0416 105 345. If you can no longer volunteer on a camp, please notify the ERC Office as soon as possible.
Volunteer positions on each camp will be confirmed within 2 weeks following the Volunteer Application closure date for each camp. (Please see dates below).It is compulsory for all volunteers to attend the pre-camp date for the selected camp. A Volunteer Camp Confirmation Letter will be sent once positions on camp are determined detailing what you need to know when attending the camp.
When you register to attend a camp, it is understood that you are available to attend the entirety of the camp, if that should change please advise the volunteer coordinator as soon as you become aware. Please also keep a note of what you have registered for, registration confirmation emails will only be sent around the time of volunteer application closure dates.
