Volunteer at Camp

Day camp volunteers are needed right now! By volunteering your time, enthusiasm and skills, you can make it possible for girls to experience the joys of the outdoors and try new activities, like photography, painting, and science experiments. In the past, most council day camps have been held in the summer with a focus on camp activities—but a day camp need not be traditional. There are opportunities to hold additional twilight or weekend day camps with a focus on different activities.

Why Camping is Awesome!

Have you ever been camping? There's a transformation that happens when you travel outside of your everyday walls. Your view of the world opens up.  We’re not just talking about your physical view—though there's something intoxicating about gently rolling hills, the intricate lacing of tree branches, and a carpet of grass and wildflowers. What we’re talking about is your view of yourself in relation to the world you live in. Suddenly, you have no walls around you. You stop worrying about how you look, and are instead enchanted by the mysteries that surround you. You go on an uphill hike and you take it step by step, enthralled by the lush life around you, never once worrying if you have what it takes to make it to the top. You gather wood for a campfire and learn about your own resourcefulness. Later that night, when you're toasting marshmallows for s'mores and staring up into the wide, brilliant expanse of stars above you, you'll begin to feel the power of your own unlimited possibilities. So go ahead! Start discovering the world around you!
