We need GREAT chaperones (age 21+) to make the weekend happen. Chaperones are responsible for assisting the parish leader in leading small groups, free time and more! There is no charge for chaperones – please contact Jason Prigge or Alaina Laing to chaperone.

Young Adult / Adult – Work Crew

Castaway depends heavily on young adults OR adults to serve on the Work Crew. Work Crew is responsible for setting up meals, cleaning up meals and helping with various tasks as programming goes on. Individuals who serve on the work crew get a free t-shirt along with a similar spiritual element as the youth. Contact Jason Prigge or Alaina Laing to serve on Work Crew. There is no charge to serve on Work Crew.
