Volunteers are an integral part of Petaluma Day Camp. Volunteers work all year long to plan, organize and develop program for camp. Volunteers are needed the week of camp to work in the units with campers and with Program staff to make everything run smoothly. Your involvement is necessary to keep Petaluma Day Camp alive. We hope that the majority of our volunteers will return year after year. We always have room for more and would love to have you join us at camp.
Did you know……that when you volunteer as a full-time unit leader, you allow up to 8 campers to be removed from the waiting list and come to camp?
We need help in all of our units. Helping the girls acclimate to camp life, get ready for program, making sure they make new friends, learn new skills and build confidence and character is the job of all of our adults in the units.
We need volunteers to help set-up, clean-up, be on the first aid staff, run special programs (crafts, cooking) and even do important at-home jobs that will make our camp run smoothly. No experience needed!!!
Volunteering at camp is one of the most fulfilling and satisfying experiences you can have as a volunteer. Directly or indirectly, you are having a positive impact on the lives of young girls. Instilling in them Courage, Confidence and Character so that they can go on to Make the World a Better Place. If you attended camp in your childhood, you will no doubt have many positive memories.
Spending time at camp can be a wonderful way to re-energize yourself. You will be spending time in a wonderful natural setting, away from the “real world”, with a group of kids who are there to have fun and enjoy life.
