AS A CAMP COUNSELOR As a camp counselor, you are assigned one camper. All counselors are expected to remain with their camper at all times, and camper-counselor pairs generally function as a “team”. You would be required to remain at the camp for the duration of the week. To volunteer, you must be at least 16 years old. Volunteer counselors undergo rigorous screening. Volunteers under the age of 18 must receive parental/guardian permission to attend. It is Camp Opportunity’s policy to provide equal opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual preference, age, or disability. In addition to helping an at-risk child who grows and matures through the camp program, many counselors develop long-lasting friendships with other counselors that continue long after the week of camp ends. Many counselors return year after year, and find that the week of camp is almost as rewarding for them as it is for their camper
AS A VOLUNTEER DRIVER We provide transportation for every camper to and from every Camp Opportunity event with the help of people willing to offer their time and chauffeur services. Drivers are needed 4 days out of the year. GET INVOLVED WITH CAMP PLANNING One week of summer camp requires months of intense planning and prepping by a strong team of diverse people. We hold planning meetings all year long leading up to the week of camp. Many tasks are assigned and various committees are formed to develop plans for the theme of each year’s camp, scheduling, activity planning, and purchasing.
