Volunteer for a Day at Camp!

Give an hour, give a day!

Our day volunteers are as critical to our program as our camp counselors. Day volunteers are those that cannot dedicated an entire week but still want to support siblings in care.

Day volunteers may assist at our camp program as well as at our SibsConnect day-long events. Day volunteers support our counselors as well as our campers throughout the day and night in their various activities and interactions. Areas of greatest need are usually centered around the birthday store, birthday party, and carnival night. They may serve as chaperones at our day events.

Day Volunteer Requirements:

  • Minimum 21 years of age

  • Physically and mentally capability of working with youth in foster care

  • Desire and ability to work with youth outdoors

  • Ability to work with volunteers, collaboratively and effectively

  • Patience, adaptability, flexibility and self-control

  • Good character and integrity
