Summer Day and Evening camps rely on volunteers. Without enough volunteers some camps may be unable to run.
Some of the benefits of volunteering at day and evening camp may include:
- Spending time with your daughter
- Priority registration for your camper
- Guaranteed placement for your camper
- Reduced registration fee for your camper
- No need to arrange childcare for your other children - many camps offer boy and preschool-age units for children of volunteers. Some even offer infant/toddler units!
- Developing your leadership expertise
- Gaining new skills and tools
- Connecting with fellow Girl Scout volunteers in your area
All volunteers must become Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital adult volunteers, complete a background check, and receive pre-camp training. Volunteer roles include:
- Unit Leader/Counselor: Guide a group of campers through pre-planned activities with another counselor or a teen aide.
- Program/Center Volunteer: Teach a skill or plan and lead a special activity like arts & crafts, nature/outdoors, STEM, high adventure, sports, etc.
- Health Supervisor: Provide first aid and manage camper and staff safety (requires First Aid/CPR certifications).
