Make Memories: Volunteer

Make Memories: Volunteer!

The magic of Day Camp happens because of caring adults like you! But we’ll let you in on a secret—girls aren’t the only ones who enjoy the magic of camp. When you spend a day…or two…or five at camp you get to enjoy the simple pleasures canoeing in the lake and roasting marshmallows around the campfire yourself! This is all while bonding with your girl and making memories that will last a lifetime.

You’ll also get the satisfaction of making a difference in the lives of other girls in your community. When you watch their outdoor skills grow and confidence blossom, you’ll know you’re making an impact. As the name implies, Day Camp by Community truly isn’t possible without the support of the community—people like you. Adult volunteers are critical to ensuring all campers have a safe and fun experience.

As a volunteer, you will be partnered with another adult to keep track of 8-12 girls as they go between activities. Sometimes adults are assigned to a station or to be with the boy or peewee unit. Even if you have a busy schedule, there’s a way for everyone contribute—if you can’t come the whole week, you could volunteer a couple of days. You could also help with set-up or clean up, or you could recruit a relative like a grandparent, aunt, or uncle to help!
