Onsite Residential Opportunities

Summer Camp Program

Volunteer Cabin Counselors and Residential Chaperones

Our volunteer cabin counselors and residential chaperones work alongside our seasonal summer and full time staff to provide a safe and fulfilling experience to our campers. As part of the cabin team, you will help provide 24-hour supervision to 8-10 campers for a full Camp session. Over the course of a typical day, you will help ensure that campers are making friends and trying new things, engaged and having fun during activity times, and singing and dancing after meals. New volunteers - We are currently at capacity for new female applicants. Male applicantsClick here to apply! Returning volunteers - We have only a limited number of spots left (mostly for male volunteers). Please contact Evan Welsh prior to registering online.

Medical Volunteers - MD and RN

Medical Volunteers work alongside our Medical Staff to provide routine and acute care to our campers. We need licensed physicians, nurses, and nurse practitioners, both specialists and general medicine practitioners who can share their medical/clinical expertise with us to create a safe and fun environment. Pediatric experience is preferred. We guarantee this will be a life-changing experience, just as it is for the children who attend Camp.

We still have a few volunteer spots during our Session 8 Hero's Journey programming (8/21-8/25). As a Hero's Journey volunteer, you will work alongside our seasonal summer and full-time staff to provide a safe and fulfilling experience for our campers. Together, you will bath in the river, cook your own meals, and sleep in our luxurious yurts. Returning Volunteers - follow this link to register!

Alongside our amazing crew of returning volunteers, you will work to get to know your family, show them around Camp, and to see that their weekend is as fun and fulfilling as possible.  New volunteers - Follow this link to apply. Returning volunteers - Check back in July to register.
