are you a rising 10th-12th grader? join us as a volunteer!
Applications for Summer 2023 open January 15.
volunteer program overview
Our volunteer program is designed specifically for high school students under the age of 18. The volunteer position is a stepping stone between our CIT position (for rising 7th-9th graders) and our Counselor positions (for college students who are at least 18-years-old at the time of camp).
Volunteers have slightly more responsibilities than CITs and are building experience towards a counselor position. It offers more flexibility of scheduling than a counselor position, and there is no fee associated with it, as with the CIT program.
This is a two-week commitment, and a great opportunity to do something you love, learn from an excellent staff, and bring work experience to your college application. Participants may also receive community service hours, if this is something that their high school accepts or requires.
It is a great opportunity for girls to help younger students and to contribute and grow as part of a strong group.
Please read below for more information and how to apply. Thank you!

what is expected
Volunteers have real responsibilities. We expect you to take the commitment seriously.
Volunteers are expected to be fully engaged with the camp group. There are specific times for breaks and cell phone use, however, volunteers are to keep their phones stored away during all camp activities.
Volunteers are at the program from 8:30am–3:45pm. They have responsibilities like greeting girls in the morning, helping girls with their projects in class, setting up snacks, etc, and being supportive and enthusiastic members of the group!
openness to learning
The volunteer experience is a learning and growing one! The camp staff is there to support you in that.
