Volunteer at Camp!

Fort Hunt Day Camp is planned and put on each year by a group of dedicated Girl Scout volunteers! Due to safety ratios, enough adults must volunteer each year for camp to run. Unfortunately, if not enough volunteers sign up, camp will be cancelled. We need your help to ensure that camp can happen this year and that every girl has an amazing camp experience.

  • Guaranteed placement for your camper(s) – bypass the lottery and get early registration access in January
  • Reduced registration rate
  • Units at camp for sons and preschool-aged children of volunteers - yes, they get to come to camp too!
  • Receive volunteer hours for training and camp days
    Network with other Girl Scout volunteers in your area
    Learn new skills, try new things, and take part in fun camp traditions!
