It’s a new season at Camp Ten Trees and it’s time to gather the people that make camp magic happen. Volunteering at camp can be an extraordinarily rewarding experience! Each year, Camp Ten Trees selects a team of enthusiastic, skilled, and youth-focused volunteers to serve as cabin counselors, specialists, health & wellness providers, kitchen crew, etc. All volunteers complete an application process, provide references, are expected to attend volunteer training prior to camp sessions. Additionally, Camp Ten Trees volunteers must have the following basic qualifications:
- Experience in working with youth.
- Flexibility and good teamwork skills.
- Knowledge about racism, classism, ableism, and other forms of oppression and/or a strong willingness to learn.
- Skills and ongoing development as an advocate for and ally to children and/or youth of LGBTQA communities, including youth of color, youth with disabilities, and youth with a wide range of identities and experiences.
- Must clear a federal background check.
- Must be able to manage the physical environment of an outdoor camp.
SUMMER CAMP SESSIONS
Our summer camp sessions are: August 12-19 (Week 1) and August 19-26 (Week 2). All volunteers are expected to attend volunteer training August 10 through August 12, and will agree to do personal training on their own before camp (materials and resources will be provided).
Here is an overview of the roles available: Summer Camp Volunteer Roles 2017.
Here is the link to apply to be a volunteer: Summer Camp Volunteer Application.
And, if there’s something you’re passionate about doing to make camp amazing, and it’s not listed in the new roles, we want to hear about it. Also, there are a lot more ways to volunteer this year. Interested in helping out or giving back to the community? Have amazing skills to share, but aren’t sure how they fit into camp? Ask us. We need a lot of help and may find something that fits. If you are ready to register, click HERE. If you are new to Camp Ten Trees, you’ll need to first create a profile with your information before you can “register” as a volunteer. This will start the volunteer application process.
