Want to volunteer over the summer? Join our camp staff:
FCA has had Sports Camps for the past 57 years. Over 52,000 coaches and campers participated in our camp program in 2012. All of our staff are volunteers except our FCA staff and interns. It is truly a blessing serving at camp- it is a lot of fun and very rewarding to see how God works so powerfully in so many lives.
Camp Volunteer Opportunities:
Sports Clinician - work with the athletes during the practice times - there are two sessions a day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We encourage the coaches to share their faith with the campers. Our Huddle Leaders are college athletes who will assist you and they work with the athletes both on the field and in their group discussion times. Huddle Leaders help the athletes develop their sports skills and build up their faith; they are with the campers the entire time. Please let us know your sport and coaching level. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org and find out if there are any openings and to obtain an application.
Huddle Leader - work with the campers during the week and help them in their sport as well as their "Walk with Christ". Tell us what college you go to or went to, your age and your sport. To qualify you must have been at least high school varsity athlete, be a committed Christian, be enrolled in or have graduated from college and be between the ages of 18 and 29. This is a great ministry opportunity.If you are interested in working more than one camp, intern positions are available.
Athletic Trainer: Our Athletic Trainers are on-site trainers who are available during practice times and pretty much when needed throughout the day and evening. We try to get as many as we can to help reduce the workload. We have many repeat clinicians and AT's who faithfully serve year after year. We also have many students come and get hours in for their course work. We try to have at least 4 or 5 certified A.T.'s and a nurse as well. All clinicians and A.T.'s and those who are on staff are given room and board.
Work Crew: Our Leadership Camp is looking for workers over 18 years of age to help in the kitchen and serving meals. This allows us to keep the cost down for those coming to camp. This is a great service project for churches or for anyone that wants to serve in this capacity.
