Volunteers will get free room and board but must find their own transportation to the camp. Certain volunteers must be 18 years of age or older.
In order for our camp to be successful we are in need of mature, responsible volunteers to fill the following positions. We need individuals who have a love for children. Our goal is to have 1 volunteer to every four children. Our preference is that volunteers commit to the entire three days, but we will work with people’s schedules as needed. Volunteers can offer love, hope, time away from their burdens, a hug, and a chance for fun, a chance to be a kid, and an opportunity to learn about God.
