Volunteer Registration is Open
Camp Quality Arkansas uses an online application system for registration. If you are 18 years or older and are available to volunteer a week of your time, we are ready to take your application for camp now! Camp will be June 11th - June 16th, 2017 at the Camp Powderfork campgrounds in Bald Knob, Arkansas. Volunteers will be required to arrive on Saturday, June 10 while the campers will arrive on Sunday, June 11. The application deadline for volunteers is April 30, 2017.
All volunteers are required to be trained prior to camp. Please make sure to select a training option on the application that works for your schedule. Further training details will be sent out via email at a later date.
We have partnered with CampDoc again this year for our application system. CampDoc offers online registration and an electronic health record system for camps. The security, confidentiality and privacy of your personal health information will always be protected. Only Camp Quality's health staff will have access to health information, and the CampDoc.com site is secure, encrypted and password protected.
If you applied in 2016, please use the same login information and simply update your info. Do not create a new account. You may add a new email address after you log in. This will allow many fields to be auto-populated from last year.
Acceptance Process for New Volunteers
Our application window is open from now until April 30th. During this time you will receive emails from us if we have any questions about your application and with reminders for upcoming dates and events.
After the application window has closed, the following must occur:
All volunteers must attend training. The in-person trainings are April 29, May 20, and May 21. (Only returning volunteers have the option of completing their training online).
At the in-person training, you must complete an interview.
Reference checks will be completed. We will be contacting the references you provided in your application.
Background checks will be completed.
Once we have verified that the above have been completed, we then go through a multi-day process of placing volunteers into positions. This is done the week following the last in-person training. Based on your application and interview, for those that want to be a Companion we pair them with a Camper and for those that want to be on Staff we place them into staff positions. It is possible that some volunteers will be wait-listed because we are currently unable to place you into one of your requested positions.
After the above is completed, we will then email you with your Camper’s information or your Staff position!
Online Registration Tips
You will need an email address to complete the application.
Selecting Arkansas and registering does not mean your application is complete.
You must complete the ENTIRE HEALTH PROFILE. Once it says your health profile is 100%, your application is complete.
The application will save anything you enter, so you won't lose what you have entered if you get interrupted.
Please upload a photo (head shot) which will help us as we start getting familiar with our new volunteers!
If you don’t have time to complete the application in one setting, you can go back later and fill in the missing pieces, using your email and password. You will get email reminders for any section that is not completed prior to camp.
You will receive a confirmation from a sender "Camp Quality USA via CampDoc.com." Do not reply to this email address. However, add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to keep emails from going to spam.
Save your Username and Password to log in and update your information in the future.
We are often asked by volunteers if there is a way they can help offset the cost of their registration and training costs. Our online application system does allow for a donation to be made and this is an additional way to support Camp Quality Arkansas that is purely optional.
If you have any questions, email email@example.com
If you have any questions, please get in touch with me by phone or email! I will be glad to talk it over with you. Camp is a wonderful experience and very fun! The children will change your life forever.
