Training Sessions

There are two, possibly three, different required training sessions that all PAs and volunteers must attend for Mountaindale West Day Camp.  

New Volunteer Orientation (new adult volunteers only)

5/8/2019 from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Location Oak Hills Church - 2800 NW 153rd Ave, Beaverton

New Volunteer Orientation is required for all new volunteers of Mountaindale West Day Camp.  Since all the camps are run differently by each volunteer camp group, if you have not volunteered at Mountaindale West Day Camp, you need to attend this meeting.  We cover your responsibilities, camp guidelines and rules, and what to expect in a typical day.  You'll also be given a visual tour of Camp Mountaindale through a slide show presentation.

Indoor Training (adults and PAs)

5/22/2019 from 5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Location St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church - 10390 SW Canyon Rd, Beaverton

Indoor Training is required for all volunteers. Paperwork and signatures are required during this training.  This meeting will take the full time allotted. 

This is a VERY important event where almost all of the preliminary planning is done for the week at camp. What will happen this night:

  • You will get your unit assignment

  • Meet your unit leadership team - adult volunteers and PAs

  • Sign required paperwork

  • Plan and create a calendar for the week of camp

  • Decide who will complete certain assignments prior to the week of camp (welcome postcard, pick up supplies, name tags, swaps, etc.)

  • Plan a date to meet again before camp to "check in" with each other and make sure you are ready for the camp week

  • Make equipment requests for the camp week for your unit

  • Make any special unit requests (items that we may not carry in our camp supplies, but might need to be borrowed or purchased or special cooking needs)

You will get demonstrations and information about:

  • Cooking

  • Supplies

  • Arts & Crafts

  • Ice Cream
