How can I help?

DiscoveryCamps are almost entirely volunteer run and there are a lot of ways you can get involved!

The ‘PERKS‘ for DiscoveryCamp Volunteers …

As a great big thank you for volunteering for DiscoveryCamp, there are some volunteer perks you should know about:

  • Camper Discount! If you sign up to volunteer before Friday, May 31 – you’ll receive one $50 discount towards a child camp registration. Once you sign up we will contact you to discuss your role and we will give you a discount code to use when you register your child for camp. Please make sure and receive your discount code prior to registering your child.

Please Note: To receive a discount, volunteers must be 18+. One discount per adult volunteer.

  • Early Registration! Camp volunteers can register their children early. Typically our camps fill up quickly – so don’t wait! Registration will open for volunteers Tuesday, March 12 at 9:00 am. Please note that there is complimentary childcare during camp for volunteers’ children who are too young to attend our Preschool Camp.
  • Tons of Fun! Volunteering for the week is truly a blast! Connect with some of the cutest kids on the planet, make a bunch of new friends, and best of all … teach kids about Jesus! What a great way to kick off your summer.
