Thank you for your interest in our camp program. Embers of Hope camp will be hosted September 8-10, 2017 in Big Bear, California. Please complete and return your application before the deadline June 30, 2017. If for any reason, you must withdraw your application, please notify the Fire & Burn Foundation in a timely manner.
Each year we receive more and more camp volunteer applications. Unfortunately, we only have a limited number of spots for counselors and simply cannot accommodate everyone. For this reason, we advise sending in your camp application as soon as possible. All applicants, whether selected or not, will be notified by mail after July 12, 2017. NOTE: There is no guarantee that a prior volunteer will be selected to participate in this camp session.
If you are a new counselor/applicant you will be required to attend a short interview in (TBD) and must commit to Mandatory Counselor Training in order for your application to be considered. A Mandatory Camp Orientation Training will be held in (TBD) at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, Oak Room. A Meet & Greet will immediately follow with the campers and their families. If you cannot attend either of these dates please notify the Foundation as soon as possible so we can make alternate arrangements.
All applicants will be required to remain at camp for the entire duration of camp. Please contact us immediately if there is a conflict and the camp committee will consider the impact to the camp and campers, and a decision regarding your attendance will be made.
We reserve the right to refuse or excuse any applicant based on one or more of the following:
- Failure to return application postmarked on or prior to deadline date (new and returning counselors)
- Have not completed a Live Scan
- Does not attend the Mandatory Counselor Training Session (new and returning counselors and staff)
- Negative action by applicant that in any way lessens the camp experience for campers, volunteers and staff alike. This applies to any previous camp session, as well as, before or during the 2017 camp session.
You may either complete the online application below, or download, print and fill out the appropriate application and submit it to the Fire & Burn Foundation. If completing the online application new counselors will need to complete the entire form. Returning counselors are only required to complete the "required" fields, which are indicated by a red asterisk.
