Volunteer at Kids Camp

Join us for a week!

  • We are really excited about the opportunity for students to engage with staff, volunteers and friends in small groups as they navigate exciting camp experiences.  To make this happen we are looking especially for volunteers excited to commit to a full week of impact.  Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  This commitment will pay dividends in the lives of these students, building powerful trustworthy connections in a world that has been so disconnected.  

Share your Strengths! 

  • If time is a constraint and your passion to be involved is high, we do have other areas of volunteer opportunity, during camp weeks and throughout the advanced prep weeks.  Please proceed through the application and make clear your availability and interest so we can work on the best fit for your strengths.

Volunteer Screening Process

  • Volunteers must complete the screening process prior to volunteering begins.  Please allow at least 3 weeks for that process prior to your anticipated volunteer start date.  Additionally volunteers are required to attend a training session prior to the beginning of camp.  Training will be held each Thursday prior to the camp weeks at Ackerman, you will have the opportunity to reserve your training slot at the end of the volunteer application.
