Camp Ten Trees relies on the generosity of volunteers to make it happen. From giving their time during sessions, procuring donations for our annual auction event and spreading word about camp—volunteers are an integral part in providing quality connection for LGBTQ+ youth and children from queer families.
It's not just about having fun - our camp volunteers go through an intensive application and training process to make sure that they can offer the best possible experience for our campers. They bring unique skills and diverse experiences from their backgrounds, whether it's from teaching, social work, or community organizing. This diversity creates a richness in the camp experience for campers and among our volunteer crew.
Check out the variety of ways you can support Camp Ten Trees through the options below.
Participate in Camp Sessions
Each year, Camp Ten Trees selects a team of enthusiastic, skilled, loving, and youth-focused volunteers to serve as cabin counselors, specialists, health & wellness providers, kitchen crew, etc. All volunteers complete an application and interview process, provide references, and are expected to attend volunteer training prior to camp sessions.
We are currently seeking volunteers for the 2022 Virtual Camp. Volunteers will help facilitate activities, workshops, affinity groups, small group conversations, and more through our virtual format.
