I hope all is well for all of you and that you’ve had a great year so far!
It’s that time again when I send out an invitation for applications. Summer 2017 will be here before we know it! Our board is already busy getting ready for this season and on-line registration being offered again this year and is already open!
We want to invite you to apply to work at Tapawingo for this summer OR to please pass it on to people who you think would be great assets to our staff. We find this is the best way to find the right people to help camp continue. Most of us have a special place in our hearts for Tapawingo and its that spirit that keeps things going! You can direct people to our website at www.camptapawingo.net for applications or email cover letters and resumes directly firstname.lastname@example.org! I also invite you to consider volunteering for a week or encourage interested people to do so. Often we need volunteers to open up our registration numbers further for certain weeks.
**Please help me out by spreading the word!! and pass this on to anyone you think would be interested.
We saw an increase in numbers last year, which we attribute to the ease of online registration, and are hoping that it will increase our numbers even more this year. With registration being already open, some of our camps are already starting to fill and we will need volunteers. We will also continue the ‘parent time - week in review’ this year where parents get to spend a little time at camp at pick-up time on the last day and catch the love for Tapawingo that their kids bring home. We are hoping to have even more parents join in for the last morning chapel service and then view a slide show of some of the fun that happened during their child’s time at camp and end with a hot dog and merchandise sale. We know that if the campers can show their parents how great Tapawingo is we will have campers for life and our camp community and supporters will continue to grow!
Applications are now being accepted with the deadline being March 25. Interviews will take place in April. All positions are open including program director, recreation director (NLS), medic (must hold valid first aid certification), Kitchen staff, male and female counsellors. We need good applicants for ALL positions! Camp cleanup this year is on May 27th with Camp Sunday being help on May 28th on Vesper Hill and we would love to see you there.
Please send a resume with relevant experience and cover letter stating why you would be a good candidate for staff this year.
Thanks so much and hope to see you this summer!!
