Camp Volunteer Roles
Camp Quality program volunteers are positive, caring adult role models focused on putting our kids and families first. Our widely diverse staff of amazing volunteers bring a wealth of worldly experience with them.
Any experienced volunteer will tell you that camp life is unquestionably, a truly rewarding experience. At the same time, it can be challenging. It will test an individual’s patience, flexibility, and privacy as well as take away much of the freedom we are used to in our daily life. But, volunteers at Camp Quality agree, it’s totally worth it!
We are looking for individuals who can live in, work in, and thrive in a rustic outdoor environment, promoting healthy personal interactions with campers and staff, while also being positive role models. Volunteer staff members must consistently show enthusiasm for the program and our mission, be eager to try new challenges and, of course, be able to deal with a little conflict now and then. We are a team of playful professionals who put our campers’ needs before our own and always reach as high as we can. Or higher!
Camp Week Volunteers
There are many different camp week volunteer roles. Our camper companions are partnered with a camper for their time at camp, while other volunteers help out in the dining room and kitchen, at the waterfront, and at the many fun activities.
Camp Quality volunteer eligibility requirements:
- 18 years of age or older.
- Able to provide a Vulnerable Sector Police Record Check before camp each year.
- Able to provide two character references.
- Available for an interview.
- Must attend mandatory volunteer training session.
Camp Organizing Committee
The Camp Organizing Committee (COC) works diligently year-round to make camp week happen. In addition to organizing the summer programs, these dedicated volunteers plan family fun days and reunions year round. Please contact your local Camp Director for more information about COC roles and responsibilities, as well as information about available positions.
In order to ensure the safety and well-being of all of our campers, each camp has a number of trained medical volunteers on site. If you are a physician or RN, we’d love to hear from you!

“After spending one of the best weeks of my life with some of the most amazing kids I’ve ever met, Camp Quality is an experience that I would recommend to anyone. Trust me on this one.”

“For me, the magic of Camp Quality is experiencing the joy of seeing a truly worry free and happy child. The camp’s one-to-one format makes it easy to focus on the individual needs and interests of the camper while developing a lasting friendship. My experience with Camp Quality has been one of the most memorable and rewarding ones of my life and I encourage any and all who wish to make a real difference to a child and their family to get involved. You won’t regret it!”
