Thank you for your interest in helping with this year’s Camp Caring. The camp is being held on Saturday, June 23rd @ 9:00am -5:00pm. Location will be at Faith Christian Fellowship in Morgantown, WV (Monongalia County).
Please complete the application form below. The Director of Camp Caring will contact you to speak further regarding application, fingerprint process, and answer additional questions, etc. (You must be approved by Camp Caring Director to volunteer at Camp Caring)
Fingerprints– All volunteers must be fingerprinted. WV Caring schedules and pays for all fingerprints. Camp Caring Director will discuss further with each volunteer.
Criminal Check—Because of the intimate nature of our work in the community, WV Caring conducts a criminal history check for all volunteers and paid staff. Please complete the last page (Authorization and Release for the Procurement of a Consumer and/or Investigative Consumer Report) and return this form with your application. Do not send in a check with this form; WV Caring pays all fees. The purpose of this form is to allow us to conduct a criminal history check. West Virginia does not check consumer information.
Training— Volunteer training, provided by experienced grief professionals, is mandatory for all camp volunteers. Training in the grief process and communication skills prepares you to offer support to those who attend Camp Caring. You will also receive important information regarding camp and the camp experience. Training dates will be set based on best availability for the most volunteers. Accommodations can be made as determined by Care Caring Director for those who are unable to attend training dates.
Transportation – We encourage all volunteers to drive themselves to camp or get together
