Special Events

Special event volunteers help with fundraising and other special events scheduled throughout the year. Our annual special events include: Holiday Party, the annual Bruce Rossmeyer Ride For Children, camp tours and numerous regional events.


 Airport Transportation Ambassador

Our Airport Ambassadors drive camp vehicles to pick up volunteers from the airport. People interested in volunteering as Airport Ambassadors need to be less than 70 years old and willing to undergo a Florida state DMV (Department of Motor Vehicle) check.


Housekeeping

Housekeeping volunteers work with our full-time staff, assisting them with laundry, tidying-up the cabins and program areas, and changing linens on camper beds between sessions.


Maintenance

Maintenance volunteers work with our full-time staff, helping them keep our camp beautiful. We are looking for people who are able to help mow grass or do minor repairs such as painting, fixing sprinkler heads, replacing screens in doors, etc.


Office Support

The Camp Operations Office, the Executive Office, and the Patch (Medical Center) are very busy places, and we are always looking for people who can help with copying, mailings, filing, answering telephones, and computer work on a daily basis. We’re always in need of office supplies, so please visit our needs list to see what we’re in need of!


Quilts, Afghans, Boggy Bears and More!

Each session, campers and families go home with a hand-made afghan and Boggy Bear stitched with love. Our campers are amazed to see all the beautiful quilts that adorn the beds and walls of the cabins and buildings. We’re also looking for some volunteers who can make and/or mend costumes for our theater program. This exciting opportunity to help can be done from home.

"Had an awesome time this weekend at Family Weekend. This was my first time at the camp and I was so IMPRESSED. What a wonderful experience. Everything was top notch. Keep up the good work. I am so glad my granddaugher has been able to attend the camp the past two years. She just loves it as well. Thanks again to everyone who make all of this possible."
