Girl Scout Day Camp



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!


This 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 you if YOU do not fulfill your Volunteer commitment, your daughter will not be able to attend camp and we will offer no refunds.


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 and girls 2 1/2 years old to entering kindergarten in the fall are in their own unit called Mini Camp.  There's a fee that covers t-shirt, activity supplies, 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 filled as needed.  TA are part of the TAG unit.
  • Each of these groups of full-time, at camp, adult volunteers have 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 registrar@fcgsdc.org 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).​
  • ​Mini Camp leader - Leader of children of volunteers, boys & girls, 2 1/2 years - entering KG
  • ​PA Leader - for unit of Program Aides (girls entering 7th-12th grades)
  • Programs - Director, Assistant Director
  • Headquarters - Director, Assistant Director, ​Nurse (RN, EMT, CNA) or Floater (does whatever/wherever help is needed all week).


Full Time Benefits

  • All children in your household are guaranteed a spot in the camp at regular price
  • Up to $165 credit (2019 camper fee).  This first covers all fees assessed your family for kids at camp.  Example: you have 1 camper, that fee is $165 so the camper is free.  If you have NO campers but have one PA and a Tag, then their fees ($50 + $50 = $100) are free because that total is under $165.
  • ​Adults do pay for children - campers, PA, tag, minis etc - at registration time and are reimbursed after services completed at day camp.  Contact registrar@fcgsdc.org with questions.
  • One Camper Buddy.  Your camper (not PA, tag or minicamper) can pick another camper to receive a guaranteed spot (the Buddy still pays the regular camper fees).  Buddy is a benefit ONLY allowed for full-time volunteers! 
  • Guaranteed spots for Tags (boys entering 1st-6th grades) and Mini's (children 2 1/2 years old through entering Kindergarten) to enjoy camp activities for days you are on site.
  • Free T-shirt and Patch for the adult (you can purchase either for your tags)
  • Enjoy canoeing and archery and learn some new camp songs with your unit
  • Experience for your resume (yes, really!)
  • ​A great tan!


Part Time Volunteer Positions

  • Anything less than 5 full days
  • Floater - help wherever needed (with unit or at HQ)
  • Assistant Unit Leader - 

            -Help the main Unit Leader but not every day.
