Adult Volunteers

Join Our Email List

Being an all volunteer day camp means we need LOTS of help!  And none of it is possible without a solid and dependable group of Before, During, and After Camp Adult Volunteers!

But there are real benefits to helping out at camp (besides the great farmer's tan) so keep reading below!

There is an application to volunteer.  Not all applicants fit positions we need.  If more than one person applies for the same spot, we will put the best qualified person in that position based on the needs of the camp.  Previous volunteering does NOT guarantee a position the next year.  Many factors go into the sorting/unit selection process.

Please remember that if YOU do not fulfill your Volunteer commitment, it could affect your daughter's attendance.  And if you are not on-site, your Tags or other children cannot be on site.

You have other children that are not Girl Scout campers?

  • If volunteering two or more full days, we have options for your "other" children - not Girl Scout campers.
  • Boys entering 1st-6th grade in the fall are in their own unit called Tags.  There's a fee to cover their activities and fishing worms and snacks, etc.
  • Boys entering 7th-12th grades in the fall can apply to be a Tag Assistant (TA).  Similar to PA role, this is a leadership role and is filled as needed.  TA are part of the TAG unit.
  • We are sorry, but we are no longer offering a Mini Camp for children younger than 1st grade.
  • Each of these groups for children of full-time, at camp, adult volunteers has their OWN online registration form and fees.

Full-Time At-Camp Positions (Full time is 5 full days!) 

  • Director-In-Training - adult interested in learning and training as a director in future years.  We have so much all ready for you! We need persons with risk management skills, comfortable resolving people conflicts and enforcing rules of GS.  Contact if you are interested!!
  • Unit Leader - adult in charge of group of campers. Tell us if you want to be with your campers unit OR any particular grade unit.
  • Tags leader - Leader of boys of volunteers, entering 1st-6th grades in the fall and TA (Tag Assistant, like a PA, but male).​
  • ​PA Leader - for unit of Program Aides (girls entering 7th-12th grades)

  • Headquarters - Director, Assistant Director, ​Nurse (RN, EMT, CNA) or Floater (does whatever/wherever help is needed all week).

  • Fees for PA, TA, or tag or are collected in May.
  • Spots for Tags (boys entering 1st-6th grades) to enjoy camp activities for days you are on site.  That is assuming we have enough volunteers to run these units (maybe that's your volunteer role!).
