Counsellors must be available Sunday, August 4th - Friday, August 9th, 2019.
We accept counsellors on a first-come first-served basis, and will initiate background checks once your information is received. We usually send out further information in early May after camper registration is closed. If you need confirmation of your application status prior to May in order to book flights, request leave, etc., please email the committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To facilitate the screening process you will need to provide us with contact details of three people who would be willing to provide you with a personal reference over the phone. This applies to everyone, even if you have counselled at Camp Jubilee before.
Last year we phoned over 50 references. Please help us out by providing full and accurate contact details so that we do not have to spend time trying to find them.
Your references should:1) Have known you for at least one year.2) Know you well enough to answer questions about your character.3) Be 18 years of age or older.
Your references should NOT:1) Be relatives (such as parents, siblings, aunts/uncles or grandparents).2) Be members of the Camp Jubilee committee (this includes Katie Dawes, Phil Walker, Julie Dawes, Rachel Ghent, Sam Turner, Lauren Ghent, Bethany Carter).
Some examples of appropriate references could be: a member of your ecclesia, a longtime friend over the age of 18, a supervisor from work, a volunteer coordinator, a teacher from school.
I know that my support of Camp Jubilee in the capacity of Counselor is greatly appreciated.
I understand that due to the requirements of the Camp's insurer, the screening process for counsellors may take up to several months and that it therefore may not be possible for Camp Jubilee to find a last minute replacement for me if I do not attend.
I am aware that in order to protect both campers and counsellors from abuse or accusations thereof, Camp Jubilee has instituted a two counsellor per cabin policy. This means that if I do not attend after committing to do so, eight campers may be unable to come to Camp.
I have given due consideration to my plans for the summer including employment and attendance at other Bible schools and I have decided to come to Camp Jubilee from August 5-10th, 2018. I agree to complete all required pre-camp preparation (i.e. familiarizing myself with lesson plans and reading through training literature).
