Wonder what it's like to serve as a Camp Mom or Camp Dad? You've come to the right place!
What is it like to Stay and Volunteer at Camp Wannacombac as a Quad Mom? Where will I stay at camp? Camp Wannacombac is divided into 4 camp quads, and each quad consists of 7 Girl Cabins, one adult Leader Lodge and one Bathhouse. Our Awesome Camp Moms sleep in one of our Leader Lodges with 4-5 other moms. They work together to supervise and care for the 20- 28 girls in their QUAD. Each quad has one mom who is asked to be the Quad Lead. She is an experienced mom that has attended camp before and is essential in guiding the other moms throughout the week. What will I do at camp? Some of the responsibilities of our Camp Moms include making sure girls are up in the morning, have their stuff together, and are ready for an amazing day of camp! Camp moms oversee Camp CAPERS such as cleaning the bathhouse, picking up trash and helping clean the dining hall after meals. You will be given a Caper Schedule and Chart to make this super-duper easy! Camp moms make sure their Quad girls are at Breakfast and Opening on time and are there with them! Camp moms also supervise evening showers and comfort tired girls at bedtime. During the day, everyone at camp has their own schedule to follow. Girls will be heading out to their Badge Workshops, Canteen, Cabin (rest) Time, and Swimming at the lake. All the camp moms supervise these activities, according to their own individual schedules. Some other ways you will serve during camp are as follows: ● Planning for and helping to lead a badge workshop (usually 2 sessions, sometimes 3). You will receive a badge workshop assignment, including contact info for your partner and budget info for acquiring supplies, in late April. ● Helping to prep, serve, and/or clean up one meal each day. ● Working with other moms to help supervise girls during cabin time and in the Quad (Cabin Mom). ● Being generally aware and present in all activities to ensure safety and Godly behavior, especially when assigned to be Swim Eyes or Canteen Helper. While serving at Camp Wannacombac is not a vacation, we strive to offer a schedule that runs smoothly and is very rewarding. To sum it up, you will be serving the girls in many, different ways, according to your schedule you’ll receive when you get to camp. In addition, you will receive a notebook with in-depth job descriptions, helpful tips, and our camp guidelines and rules. A week at Camp Wannacombac is such a fun get-away! We know you’re going to love our piney woods, the beautiful sunsets, the chance to pour into the lives of girls, and the fellowship with other likeminded AHG leaders. We can’t wait to meet you at camp! WooHooty!
