2024 SSPX Summer Camp Volunteer Application Form


We are looking for volunteers (Supervisors and kitchen staff) to help run the 2024 Summer Camps. 

Do something rewarding and make a difference to our camp attendees. You'll be part of a team, get to make friends and have fun. Learn and develop skills including teamwork, creativity and communication. General responsibilities of a camp volunteer will involve supervising activities, ensuring a safe, happy and engaging environment. 

Why do it?

Each one of you has received a special grace, so, like good stewards responsible for all the different graces of God, put ourselves at the service of others. (1 Peter 4:10)
