Camp Fire USA looking for youth volunteers for summer day camps

March 28th, 2011 · Comments

Camp Fire USA is looking for students in grades 8-12 to volunteer at its summer day camps, including at Woodland Park and Carkeek Park.

Day Camp is about doing, not watching. It’s about enjoying nature and living outdoors, and working together with kids from a variety of socioeconomic, racial, cultural, religious and disabled populations. Camp Fire USA Day Camps operate using caring, well-trained, responsible volunteer staff.

We are currently seeking volunteers! Youth in grades 8 – 12 can volunteer at any of the sites (except Camp Sealth) as a junior staff counselor at $15 per camp, plus a one-time $25 fee for non-members. Adults can volunteer at any of the sites (except Camp Sealth) as counselors, activity specialists, purchasers, equipment managers or camp nurses. Full-time adult volunteers get a discount on day camp registration for their own children. Camp Fire provides the required training for all volunteers.

See 2011 Day Camp Schedule with dates & rates or contact Janelle Kitson at 206-826-8910 janellek@campfire-usa.org for more information.
