Camp Perkins has many opportunities to volunteer your time! We have several summer opportunities and work weekends. Camp could not exist as it does without the support of our many volunteers, and it is that love that camp was built on!
Health Care Volunteers
Each week in the summer, we need a a health care volunteer to come take care of the physical needs of our campers. This includes everything from giving out band-aids to camper and staff medications. Because of the scope of the responsibility, we are looking for those that are experienced in the health care field to fill this position. Health Care Volunteers (HCV) are invited to bring their families with them, and for every week they serve, one of their kids will receive a week of camp at half price! They will also get a staff t-shirt for their time. Please download and complete the HCV Application for more information and to apply. A background check will be run on all HCV's prior to arrival.
On Sundays, we are also looking for 2-3 other volunteers that are experienced in the health care field to help check our campers in and get them out of the lines and into the cabins! We need people from 2:30-4pm every week to help check in meds and review the health forms to be sure we can care for all of our campers. If you volunteer, you'll also get a free t-shirt!
Spiritual Life Leader
During the summer, Camp Perkins invites church workers to come to Camp to help care for the Spiritual well-being and growth of the entire camp. They help with Staff Bible Study times, camper Bible Study, Campfire, and even throwing water balloons. Spiritual Life Leaders (SLL) are welcome to bring their families and stay in the comfort of our retreat center for the week, receive a week at half price for one of their kids, and also get a staff t-shirt! Please download and complete the the SLL Application for more information and to apply. A background check will be run on SLL's prior to arrival.

And each year that means a lot of work getting ready for the 1,000's of people that will come in summer and to get ready for the multiple feet of snow and all of the campers that will come in winter. Join us for our spring work weekend and fall work weekend for an amazing free weekend of service at camp! Camp can not happen without our volunteers!
