Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with Summer Camp this year! In 2021, this program will remain virtual over Zoom to maintain the health and safety of our community during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
There are two available sessions for Summer Camp; you are welcome to apply for one or both!
2021 Session I: July 12–17 / 2021 Session II: July 19–24
We especially encourage womxn (cis or trans) and gender expansive individuals of color to apply for volunteer and/or leadership positions at camp.
How are volunteer roles different now that camp is virtual?
Great question! If you’re familiar with our volunteer roles from in-person camp, you’ll find that their essential functions remain the same while we maintain the flexibility needed for engaging virtually. We still need our volunteers just as much as ever!
