Volunteers are the backbone of Camp Quality – without them, our programs would not happen. With 8 different camping experiences, our puppet program, and events across the country, we have a volunteer role for everyone.

Camp Quality volunteers are 18 years of age or older, able to provide a Police Record Check and two Character References.


“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.”

– Chris, companion

“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!”

– Richard, companion

Camp Volunteer Roles

  • 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.

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.

Medical Volunteers

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!
