We could not make Camp Anytown possible without support from our community volunteers. Each session, a group of over 35 adults serve as program advisors and counselors for our youth. Staff are background checked, attend training prior to each session, and arrive one day prior to camp to prepare for the arrival of students.
The Fall 2017 Session has been scheduled for Thursday, October 19th – Sunday, October 22nd, 2017. The deadline to turn in your application is Friday, July 28th. Please click here to fill out an online volunteer application: Volunteer Application
