Volunteer for MSA’s Camps & Events
MSA Camps and Events is a leadership and orientation program that was established in 1974. The program runs during non-semester periods and includes events like scavenger hunts, moonlight cinemas and orientation camps. We are looking for leaders who wish to help new students socialise and find their feet, while also developing new skills and building social networks of their own.
Volunteers can continue in the role of Host for up to four seasons. After this time, the aim would be that volunteers progress to the Mega Host, C&E Intern or Sub-Coordinator role. If you have completed your full Mega Host term (2 seasons), you are no longer able to apply or be a host. Volunteers who were suspended, demoted or removed from the C&E program or the MSA Volunteering Department cannot hold Host positions.
Note: Camps & Events FB Closed Group is how we talk to one another and communicate events and activities. Email is rarely used during this program.
