Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteer Counsellors are assigned to a cabin of campers with other volunteers/staff. As a team everyone works together to help create a supportive, fun and safe community for the campers. Volunteers participate in the activities with campers, supervise their campers, and assist their campers with their personal care as needed. Overall the volunteers role is to ensure that their campers have the best camp experience possible.
