Interested in being a volunteer for Sportsworld camp?
Awesome! Sportsworld exists as a local missions opportunity for the students of Denton Bible Church grades 6th–12th to minister to elementary aged kids in our community. Because we desire to be above reproach with the counselors and crew who will be entrusted with the campers during the week of Sportsworld, we have some criteria in place for those counselors and crew members. Here’s our criteria for all Sportsworld volunteers!
- Counselors and Crew members must have just completed a grade from 6th – 12th grade the previous school year. (For example, if a student has completed 6th grade for the 2019-20 school year, they are eligible to be a Sportsworld Volunteer. If a student is any grade younger than that, they are eligible to be a camper, but not a volunteer.)
- Counselors and Crew must be involved at Denton Bible Church. This means they must have a relationship with our church body so they are known by DBC staff or adult volunteers.
- Counselors and Crew must obtain an email of recommendation from a DBC staff or volunteer if they are involved at DBC, but not if involved directly with Denton Bible Student Ministries.
- Counselors and Crew must be able to attend the training session Saturday, June 20 before the week of camp.
- Counselors and Crew must fill out and have a satisfactory report on a background check. And must have completed the online SAAT training (Ministry Safe).
- Counselors and Crew must be able to attend all five days of camp. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis.
- The only way to sign up as a Counselor is in person at the Student Ministries Center.
- Counselors and Crew must fill out a Liability Waiver and Photo Consent waiver.
Volunteer sign-ups for all volunteers, Games Crew and Counselors alike, will launch Sunday, April 5, 2020 at the DBSM Sunday Morning Service. The sign-ups will only be available at DBSM services–every Sunday morning and Wednesday night Elevates (last one is May 13, 2020). The final day to sign up is Sunday, May 24. We will not be taking any sign-ups before April 5, nor will we take any sign-ups outside of our DBSM services.
*Due to the rapidly changing environment surrounding the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will be adjusting our method of collecting volunteer sign ups for Sportsworld 2020. Check back later for more info!
A note for those outside Denton Bible Church:
As far as our Sportsworld Counselors and Crew go, we do limit those spots for students who are involved at DBC since this is a local outreach event put on by DBSM. We do this so that we can have the utmost integrity in caring for the campers through out the week. Knowing the counselors is very important to us and helps us place them in groups properly, shepherd them well as they encounter campers issues, redirect them when needed and so forth.
