9 Big Reasons to Volunteer!

  • Leadership Development: Our volunteers take on leadership roles, such as assisting and helping to lead activities, supervising younger campers or preparing new activities. These responsibilities can help teens develop leadership skills, including communication, problem-solving, and decision-making.

  • Teamwork: Volunteering at our camps involves collaborating with other volunteers and camp staff to ensure the smooth running of activities and programs. Our volunteers learn the value of teamwork, cooperation, and compromise as they work together towards common goals.

  • Empathy and Compassion: Interacting with campers from diverse backgrounds and with varying abilities fosters empathy and compassion in our Volunteers. They learn to be patient, understanding, and supportive, especially when assisting campers who may need extra help or encouragement.

  • Communication Skills: Our camp volunteers are continually developing their communication. Whether it's giving instructions, resolving conflicts, or simply conversing with other Staff, our Volunteers enhance their verbal and non-verbal communication skills through these interactions.

  • Problem-Solving: Volunteering at our camps presents teenagers with various challenges, such as resolving conflicts among campers, adapting to unexpected situations, or brainstorming creative solutions to logistical issues. These experiences help teens sharpen their problem-solving abilities and develop resilience in the face of adversity.

  • Personal Growth: The responsibilities and experiences gained through volunteering at a summer camp contribute to teenagers' personal growth and self-confidence. They gain a sense of accomplishment from successfully fulfilling their duties and overcoming challenges, which boosts their self-esteem and self-efficacy.

  • Building Relationships: Volunteering at a summer camp provides teenagers with the chance to form meaningful connections with fellow volunteers, campers, and mentors. These relationships can lead to lasting friendships, mentorship opportunities, and valuable networking connections.

  • CV Building: Volunteering experience at our camps will look impressive on future job applications. It demonstrates a teenager's commitment to community service, leadership potential, and valuable skills gained through practical experience.

  • Sense of Purpose: Volunteering gives teenagers a sense of purpose and fulfillment by contributing to the well-being and enjoyment of others. Knowing that they are making a positive impact on the lives of campers and helping to create memorable experiences can be incredibly rewarding for young volunteers.
