STAFF & VOLUNTEERS

 At Camp Sonrise, we are blessed to have a wonderful and committed staff (volunteer and paid) who work hard to provide a safe and enriching environment for your children. Our hope is that the Christian values taught and displayed will make a positive difference in the lives of our campers, and that each and every camper will view the Camp Sonrise staff as mentors and friends. In addition to our day camp training program, each of our staff members undergoes an extensive application process that includes government background checks. 

 Below you will find the steps to complete your application as Camp Sonrise Staff (volunteer or paid). Not every step is required, so please read carefully.
