Welcome to Camp

Volunteers are the most important part of Camp Opportunity. For many campers, Camp Opportunity is their first vacation away from home, and the memories that they develop and lessons they learn will last forever. We take pride in the fact that our volunteers represent a great variety of ages, races, ethnicities, creed, political affiliations, and sexual orientations. Check out what some of our counselors have to say about Camp Opportunity in this short video.

There are many different ways to volunteer your time and services to Camp Opportunity.

Be a Camp Counselor

As a camp counselor, you are assigned to one camper. This allows for a strong bond to develop between camper and counselor, leading to transformative relationships that can last long after camp is over. Many counselors return year after year, finding that the week of camp is almost as rewarding for them as it is for their camper.

You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer. Volunteers under the age of 18 must receive parental/guardian permission to attend. Volunteer counselors undergo rigorous screening. It is Camp Opportunity’s policy to provide equal opportunities without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, gender, sexual preference, age, or disability. Counselors are required to remain at the camp for the duration of the week.

Be a Volunteer Driver

We provide transportation for every camper to and from every Camp Opportunity event. Drivers are needed 4 days out of the year. The Camp Opportunity Transportation Policy is available here.

Get Involved with Camp Planning

One week of summer camp requires months of intense planning by a strong team of diverse people. We hold planning meetings all year long leading up to the week of camp. Duties include developing the camp theme, scheduling, activity planning, and purchasing.
