At IAWAH, we enjoy working with a large variety of volunteers throughout the seasons and seek those who have a love for serving others.
Some volunteers serve for a week or two while others can commit to a day a week, or one weekend each season. The following is a short list of roles that volunteers often fill:
- Grounds keeping
- Sewing projects (usually done at home)
- Woodworking projects (done at home or onsite)
- Camper transportation
- Medical staff members
- Cabin leaders
Please download the Adult Volunteer Guide 2021 to learn more about each option and to prepare you for what to expect while volunteering at IAWAH this summer.

Criminal Record Check for Volunteer Work with the Vulnerable Sector
Please submit your Criminal Record check with your application, prior to your arrival.
Completing your check:
You may go to your local police station and ask for one to be done. Before you visit the police station, however, make sure you have the proper identification and paperwork ready.
There is an administrative fee for this service. However, often the the administrative fee is waived when requested on behalf of a non-profit organization and if you are volunteering. If they require you to pay, we will cover the costs that you may incur from acquiring this. To be reimbursed, please send a copy of your receipt along with a copy of your criminal record check for work with the vulnerable sector. If they are going to waive the fee they may ask for a letter from the employer with the registered charitable organization number, if you require a letter please let us know and we can provide one for you.
