Camp Shalom Volunteer Opportunities

The backbone of Camp Shalom is the summer staff, but we have a number of volunteer opportunities for people who want to help us out during the week!

Volunteer Cooks

Each week of summer camp we need three volunteer cooks to help in the kitchen Monday – Wednesday. Volunteer cooks assist the Head Cook by cutting vegetables, serving meals, and maybe even doing a few dishes! Cooks are welcome to stay in our retreat center, the Charis House, while they are helping at camp.

Volunteer Health Check-in

On Sundays we need 3-4 volunteers to help with camper health screenings. Our check-in volunteers ensure camper health forms are completed and perform a lice-check on campers. No background in healthcare is required.

Volunteer Mowing

We are in need of volunteer mowers on Thursdays at Camp Shalom. Our need for mowers also extends beyond summer camp.

If you are interested in volunteering as a cook, mower, or health check-in helper, please fill out a volunteer application online, pick the dates you want to help, and submit it to the camp office.

Assistant Counselor

*Please do not submit applications before February 17, 2017*
Assistant Counselors help the weeks run smoothly and make camp a safe, lively, fun place to be. They help draw campers into the Christ-centered camp community and are role models for faithful Christian living. At the beginning of the week, Assistant Counselors will be assigned to assist a Counselor with his/her cabin and possible program responsibilities. Assistant Counselors also serve as support staff, washing dishes and doing any other duties as assigned, to keep the weeks running smoothly.

Assistant Counselor requirements:

  • Must have completed 10th grade by the beginning of summer
  • Must be able to make a consecutive, two-week commitment*
  • Submit a completed application with AC session requests
  • Submit two Camp Shalom reference forms

*If you cannot make a consecutive, two-week commitment then you will be put on an AC wait-list. Once AC spots have been assigned, the Program Director will try to accommodate the applicants on the wait list.
