Please follow this link for an online Criminal Record check
using this code when requested: S5ZYYKWVTV
Note: These forms are only for those over 19 yrs.even though it says 12.
Alternately, you can request a Record Check at your local police detachment.


We currently have volunteer positions open for the following periods:

During our Summer Camps: Looking to spend time with children in a variety of relationships?

Short-term: Would you like to take on a work project?

Year-round: There are positions for Camp Development that go on through out the year.


Throughout the year the Board organizes a variety of activities to help maintain and support the Camp Koolaree summer camp season. It could be a Spring or Fall work party at the campsite or a fundraiser project in Trail or Castlegar or Nelson.

If you would like to be included in our "call out" list to help in our many activities, please send us your name and interest. Next time we are planning an event we will contact you to see if you might be available to pitch in.
