Application Process

Once you have made the decision to be a childcare volunteer, it is time to work through the application process! We appreciate the time you take to complete this application process in our effort to keep kids safe!

Step 1 - Application + Deposit

    ALL VOLUNTEERS: Fill out and submit the online - YoungLives Camp Childcare Application.

  • Submit your deposit:
    AREA VOLUNTEERS: If you are coming with a local YoungLives or Young Life group (we call them areas), you must submit any payments to that area.

    INDEPENDENT VOLUNTEERS: If you are not coming with a local YoungLives or Young Life group, please view the listing of available 
    payment options. A deposit of $100 is due with your application. The deposit is required to hold your spot.The remaining balance is due four weeks prior to your camp date.​ ​

Step 2 - Online Screenings + Two Confidential Character References
  • Once logged in, complete the Faith and Conduct Acknowledgement and the Criminal Background Check Authorization.  
    • These forms are required for every childcare volunteer every three years. If your forms are out of date or if you have never completed them, you will be prompted to complete them upon logging in.

  • Ask at least two non-relatives (employers, church family, pastors, Young Life leaders or staff, etc) to complete the Confidential Character Reference for you. Please send the link to your references as soon as you apply and ask them to complete it within two weeks.
    • Please note: If you are under the age of 18, we ask that one reference come from someone who has supervised you in a childcare or babysitting setting.

Step 3 - YL Health + Consent Form
  • Complete the Young Life Health + Consent Form​. This form requires a separate log in (we know, we know....another login!! sorry! But it is to make sure your health information stays secure.). 
    • New users will need to make an account following the instructions given. Previous users will need to log in. 
    • It is possible to duplicate a previous health form, so you do not have to re-type all your information if you have completed the form before.

Step 4 -  Final Payment
  • AREA VOLUNTEERS: If you are coming with a local YoungLives or Young Life group (we call them areas), please submit your final payment to that area.

  • INDEPENDENT VOLUNTEERS: Please view the listing of available payment options. The remaining balance (including any airport shuttle costs, if applicable) is due four weeks prior to your camp date.​  

  • The camp fee is considered a tax-deductible contribtuion because it is the cost associated with your volunteer service.  Check for this year's childcare camp fees​

Step 5 -  Online Childcare Training
  • You will be asked to complete some training materials online at YL Access. Your childcare administrator will be in touch with the details when it is time to complete this step.
