Camp Erin Volunteer Application

2021 Camp Erin Lincoln Volunteer Application

Camp Erin Lincoln is an annual weekend-long camp for children and teens (ages 6-17) who are grieving the death of someone significant in their lives. It is scheduled for Friday, September 24 - Sunday, September 26 at Carol Joy Holling Camp in Ashland, Nebraska.

Because of COVID, programming and volunteer needs may adjust as we approach camp weekend. Mourning Hope will prioritize safety and wellbeing, and will place volunteers accordingly. Local DHMs will be monitored, and safety practices will be communicated prior to the camp weekend. Some programming may be rescheduled, canceled, or provided in a virtual setting. Volunteers will be notified of any changes as soon as possible. Volunteers may be required to show proof of COVID vaccination and/or a negative COVID test prior to working with campers.

Camp Erin volunteer qualifications:

  • Must be at least 18 years of age
  • Must pass a criminal background check
  • Must attend a training session (choose either August 28 or September 1)
  • Must commit to attend the entire Camp Erin weekend (this is crucial in order to provide consistent support to campers)
