Volunteer Programs

Family Camp
Our popular Family Camps provide the opportunity for families to explore the magic of Camp together! Volunteers are needed to assist with running program areas, assisting with meals, interacting with families, and more. 

Summer Camp
Our overnight summer camp program is run by a wonderful group of summer staff, volunteers, full-time staff, and medical professionals! 

We offer a suite of Social Emotional Learning programs for local schools and youth programs. Volunteers are needed to welcome groups to camp, help manage their experience, and assist with program areas. 

There is always work to be done on a facility going on 100 years old!  We are always looking for individuals and groups to help with painting, landscaping, and general maintenance and upkeep of the facility. 

Summer Opportunities

Program Volunteer
Volunteers are the backbone of the camp. Our program volunteers assist in different areas to provide support to the campers. This includes being actively involved in the supervision, guidance, and motivation of campers. Volunteers are expected to sing, dance, and be silly- we play like kids!

Kitchen Volunteer
Assist the Dining Service team with various duties which include food prep, serving, and setting up and cleaning up after each meal.

Medical Volunteer
Work closely with a team of medical professionals to provide direct care and management to campers of all ages. We provide extensive training to make sure all of our staff and volunteers are fully prepared and ready to provide the best treatment possible.

Facilities Volunteer
With camp at capacity all summer, facilities volunteers help to maintain by addressing little issues that arise from a broken door and wood splitting to janitorial support.
