Volunteers are an essential part of the ministry at CAMP-of-the-WOODS. Each year, hundreds of individuals and families help support CAMP-of-the-WOODS through their service. They play an integral part in the opening, operation, and closing of Camp, and we are grateful for them.
There are many facets to our Volunteer Program at CAMP-of-the-WOODS. We always need volunteers to help open Camp during the last two weeks in May, and we need other help during the last two weeks in August when many of our staff must leave for college. Others help out by volunteering after Labor Day to help close Camp. Whenever and wherever you are able, we would appreciate your service to our Lord and this ministry. Plus, our volunteers enjoy great fellowship as they serve our Lord together.
