Summer Camp Volunteer | Hands-On House

Hands-on House is looking for responsible, energetic, hard-working teen volunteers for our summer camp! Our camp runs from 9-2, Monday-Friday. Volunteers need to be high schoolers aged 15-18 by their volunteer date.  

Volunteer hours are from 8:45-2:15 every day

What will volunteers be doing? 

Campers are placed into groups according to age with one teacher overseeing each group. Volunteers will be placed with a group to assist the teacher in: 

  • supervising campers 
  • facilitating learning activities and games 
  • cleaning up and resetting activity areas  
  • making summer camp a fun and exciting experience for our campers! 

Why should I volunteer with Hands-on House? 

Hands-on House Summer Camp is a great place to get volunteer hours while making an impact in the community. If you are responsible, hard-working, and love working with kids, this is a great opportunity for you! 

What dates? 

Volunteers are needed for all nine week-long sessions of camp, which run from June 13 to August 19 (excluding the week of July 4th). Volunteers need to commit to at least one full week of camp and can volunteer for multiple weeks if they would like.
