Volunteer

Ready to Get Involved?

Volunteers are needed for the 2023 year! Consider how you might serve: summer camp counselor, program staff, nurse or maintenance; office help; grounds crew; adopt a cabin; fundraising; and board committees.

Contact Executive Director David Berkey or the site director of the camp you wish to serve to learn how you can get involved.  You can also complete the inquiry form below. Please note that the completion of the form below is not the volunteer application.

If you’ve already connected with the site director about where/when you will volunteer, please log into our registration system and register for the volunteer event (i.e. WW23volunteer).  Complete the volunteer application and annual disclosure forms (i.e.  “WW22volunteer” to volunteer at Wesley Woods).
