Volunteer Training 

Important changes to Camp Got2Go

Online Volunteer Training should be conducted approximately one month prior to the start of camp. The purpose of the training session is to go over the logistics for the camp, go over assigned duties, and answer any questions. The training can be done via GoToWebinar. You can create a PowerPoint that can be used to present all the relevant information. To ensure good participating, a Doodle Poll can be sent up to gain feedback regarding date and time of the call. 

You will update and send the volunteer handbook at least 2 weeks prior to the camp date. If possible, it would be really helpful to meet with volunteers in person for training. This way you will have the opportunity to meet everyone face to face. You will be able to complete training and allow individuals to ask questions in person. This is also helpful so that the volunteers can become comfortable with each other prior to the camp and understand each role that will be present during the camp experience.
If this is not possible, I would encourage you to have volunteers show up to the camp site at least 2 hours before the campers to go over important parts from the online training. 
Transportation Arrangements 
For

Camp Got2Go

The Alberta Camp, you will have to create a spreadsheet of all tentative flights for campers who have been selected to fly in. Ideally, on the arrival and departure days, campers should all be flying out in about a 4 hour window. This will help with transportation arrangements to and from the airport and prevent airport volunteers from having to wait all day for campers to arrive/depart. The spreadsheet should contain camper information (full and legal name, date of birth, and hometown), departure

city, time of flight (arrival and departure), airline, flight number, and any important information (allergies, etc.). Once the spreadsheet is created, it can be sent to Karen from Flair Travel for booking. Karen and her team will book the flights and will call you if there are any discrepancies

between your list and what is available (price changes, flight changes, etc.). To book the flights, they will need a credit card. In the past we have used Kate Lee’s. It’s important to ensure there are enough funds available on the credit card to cover the flight amounts. Once the flights are booked, the reference numbers should also be included in the spreadsheet. This spreadsheet should be sent out to the airport volunteers and the DC overseeing the airport team.
