Without the investment from volunteers, we could not create spaces of inclusion, grace, and belonging within our community. Our hope is that you will be transformed by this community and join us in creating more spaces that reflect the essence of Camp Sunshine in our world. We have plenty of opportunities with varying time commitments for you to volunteer your time with us at either camp, or throughout the year.
Whether it's just you or your whole corporate team, we would love for you to join us! Fill out the interest form linked below and we'll be in touch!
Volunteer At Camp
Help Camp Sunshine
Come for a few hours in the morning, afternoon or evening to help support different areas of camp. From supporting counselors, to helping with activities, to covering cabins in the evening…every role is important!
Opening Day Volunteers - The first morning of camp is filled with celebrating every camper that arrives and providing themed activities. Come help out with one of the activities or help with check-in!
Sunshine Subs - Come for a morning or afternoon to be paired with a camper to give a counselor time to rest, shower or take a break. Subs are vital to counselors feeling supported
Cabin Coverage - Calling all night owls! Come support cabins as campers settle in for the night to sleep and as Counselors have their daily meeting.
Creative Expressions or Recreation Support - Support our leadership team in running Creative Expressions or Recreation programming.
Registered Nurses - Care for campers/counselors, oversee check-in of camper’s medication, administer medications.
ASL interpreter - At camp to sign all of our lessons, singing and group activities as well as interact with our campers who are fluent in sign. They also assist counselors in any non-verbal communication modes specific for a campers needs.
Certified Lifeguards - Needed at the pool and beach fronts for afternoon swim time.
Our year round programming goes beyond just summer camp. Each year Camp Sunshine hosts 4-5 events outside of camp. Each event is directed by staff but supported in different ways by volunteers. Volunteering at an event is a great way to engage and connect with the camp community outside of our camp season.
