Become a Buddy

Buddy Program (ages 18-21)

If you’re outgoing and energetic, caring and compassionate, dependable and positive, and a team player, then our Buddy Program may be for you!

During the Buddy Program you’ll meet great people, develop new skills and use these skills to help kids have a positive camp experience. Buddies provide support to campers by mentoring them, being there to listen and sharing experiences.

In addition, Buddies…

  • Build leadership skills.
  • Host the Buddy Campfire.
  • Act as tour guides on Visitors Day.
  • Decorate for the camp’s theme party.
  • Play an essential role in upholding Camp Goodtimes traditions such as camp songs, dining hall “rules” and other fun activities.

Applicants are required to:

  • Complete the registration form, providing two references.
  • Provide a current resume.
  • Complete a criminal record and vulnerable sector check.
  • Meet with our volunteer coordinator by phone or in-person for an interview.
  • Attend a Buddy Orientation and be available for camp from August 18-23, 2019.
