The list below represents the latest understanding of our volunteer need – there are opportunities for those who feel very comfortable working with small groups of children, as well as individuals who would like to work behind the scenes.
Many Different Ways to Volunteer at Eaton Camp…
…working with small groups of campers & teen counselors, morning & early afternoons, Monday-Friday:
Reading Volunteers: read books and discuss pictures and content.
Writing Volunteers: work on short writing and illustration projects, tailored to each camper’s ability.
Educational Games Volunteer: play games with sight words, or play games and do crafts with individual letters.

…behind the scenes opportunity to volunteer:
