Consider volunteering your time for the week or a few days
We are seeking volunteers to help run an amazing jamboree experience for the youth.
Programming is our largest requirement however, there are also site services, trip supervisors and administrative support roles required.
Program Delivery Services
Offers of Service (OOS) volunteers involved in program delivery will be responsible for the execution of one program activity during the core program days.
Each program activity will come with complete instructions and all materials to deliver the element, as provided by the CCJ staff. The core program will be offered on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
All program staff will be assigned to a special program activity on our celebration day Wednesday. Training for your activity will be done on Sunday, prior to the commencement of CCJ’20
