Volunteers and Parent Staff

Volunteers are an essential part of Medeba's success and we value their desire and willingness to serve. During Summer Camp we offer two options: our Parent Staff program and Volunteer program. These positions are filled based on our weekly staffing needs. 



We accept individuals 17 years old and older who have past association with Medeba. A one week commitment is required, along with flexibility and willingness to work where needed.


Parent Staff

For parents or grandparents who work for a week at Medeba during the summer, we provide a credit towards your child's/grandchild's day camp/residential program fee. This will be a taxable benefit. Please contact our Assistant Summer Camp Director for further details.


We are able to accommodate parent staff for alternate weeks than their child attends, but due to lack of extra staff accommodation and child care resources, all children accompanying parent staff must be enrolled in the residential camp program.


Volunteer/Parent Staff Positions Available

Each parent staff position is based on a 9 hour work day. The volunteer commitment commences at 1:00pm on Sunday and is completed by Saturday morning.
