Camp LOLO Volunteer Application - 2020
Hello! Thanks so much for your interest in being part of Camp Lolo. This application is intended for people who would like to volunteer on-site for the 2 days of Camp Lolo 2020, Friday, June 19th & Saturday, June 20th. Please carefully review the volunteer requirements and list of important dates below before submitting an application. If you cannot meet these requirements and/or if you'd prefer to support camp in a different way (helping with fundraising, camp preparations, etc.) please e-mail

Our primary need for volunteers is for adults to serve as camp buddies for specific campers. We also hope to have a strong group of volunteer mental health professionals to facilitate grief activities and serve as group leaders. Finally, we need volunteers who can plan and help with recreation activities (fishing, kayaking, horses, games, dancing), assist with arts & crafts, help with meal & snack preparation, and logistics (set up & take down, hauling, etc.).

Have you volunteered with Camp Lolo previously?
If you have volunteered previously, in what capacity?
One of our most critical needs for camp to be successful is to have adult volunteers serve as camper "buddies" for each of our campers. Each Camper buddy is paired with a specific camper and provides support/spends time with their assigned camper throughout the two full days of camp. This is a great opportunity to develop a relationship with a grieving child, provide individual support, and be directly involved in camp activities.
Are you interested in being a Camper "buddy"?
If yes, are you able to commit to attending both days of camp (June 19th & 20th) and the required volunteer trainings (May 2nd, 10 AM - 12 PM & June 11th, 6:30-9:00 PM)?
