2023 SUMMER MADNESS
June 26th - 30th
More detailed information about Summer Madness can be found below the flyer.
Summer Madness CANNOT happen without our parent volunteers. We cannot use buses since we need to get so many groups of kids to many different work sites. Even if we could use buses, it would make the program way too costly.
Parent volunteer shifts consist of the following:
Parents can choose from Morning & Afternoon shifts.
AM Shifts are approximately 8:30am-12:30pm or 8:45am-12:45pm. The AM shift consists of the parent driver/chaperone driving an assigned group of youth to a work site. Parent chaperone will stay to volunteer and generally oversee the group, but the Peer Ministers are the leaders for the campers.
PM Shifts are approximately 12:30-4:30pm. It varies slightly based on the afternoon activity the day you volunteer. The PM shift consists of the parent driver/chaperone driving a group of youth to the fun site planned for that day, then stay to help where needed.
PARENTS DRIVERS/CHAPERONES NEED TO PLAN ON STAYING FOR THE ENTIRE SHIFT.
Parent/Chaperone Driving Requirements:
Parents will sign up for all their driving/chaperone shifts on a Sign-Up Genius that will be sent out end of May. All parents NEED to offer at least two (2) shifts for the first registered camper/PM AND one (1) shift for each additional camper/PM during the week. So if you have 1 Camper/PM attending, you will sign up for 2 shifts. If you have 2 Campers/PMs, you will sign up for 3 shifts, and so on.
ALL PARENT VOLUNTEERS MUST BE VIRTUS/STAND CERTIFIED. Step-by-step instructions will be emailed to you. This certification consists of a background check, driving check, 3 reference checks, and a short training session. This is a requirement of the Archdiocese of Baltimore and is all done through a secure online provider. This certification is good for 5 years once completed.
Worthy of the Call Certification for youth ages 14-17 consists of 2 steps:
2. Attend 1 (one) in-person training session.
There will be a Summer Madness packet provided to all registered families that will describe all of this and more in great detail.
