Our volunteer staff is what makes a life-changing summer camp experience possible.
The leaders of Camp Athens have been creating summer camp memories since 2002 and this is the first year we are branching out to add a community day camp so we can develop even deeper relationships with those who are a part of the Camp Athens family.
If you are passionate about helping others (and your life shows it), we’d love for you to apply. We need our Group Leaders to serve all week since they are the most connected to the campers. Other roles can be done on a part-time volunteer basis if needed.
Here are our volunteer opportunities:
Group Leaders (2 per 10 youth)
Safety / Security
General Staff (help with office, errands, activities, setup, kitchen, photography, musical worship, leading discussions/devotionals, etc.)
If you are a new applicant we will run a background check on you if you are 18 or older and require two recommendations from those who can vouch for your good character.
We hope you consider joining us at Camp Athens. It will change your life!
Q: Does it cost anything to volunteer at Camp Athens?
A: No, and we even provide you with FREE t-shirts and food!
Q: How old do I have to be?
A: We accept volunteers beginning at age 14 although most of our staff will be 16 and older. We have staff in all decades up to their 60s who come to camp.
Q: Can I volunteer part-time?
A: Yes! You can volunteer for just part of a day or just some of the days. We desire that our group leaders be there all week but other positions are very flexible.
Q: I have kids younger than 8? Can they be campers?
A: We run a mini-camp program for children of our volunteers. We accept kids ages 3-7 for the mini-camp program. Parents must be volunteering to enroll the children. There is no cost for the mini-camp program.
Q: What are the hours of camp?
A: Camp begins each day at 8:15 am and ends at 5:30 pm. We give extra time for drop off and pick up.
Q: Do I have to be a Christian to volunteer?
A: We deeply love and respect people of all faiths. We are a Christian based camp but EVERYONE is welcome to apply.
