As a volunteer, you give us the manpower to take the baton from schools and deliver high impact programs to some of our community’s most in-need kids. The job requirements are simple: Have a passion to better the lives of local youth. Here are ways you can volunteer with Camp Fire:
Crowded classrooms. Slashed school budgets. Working, single parents. Kids need the one-on-one attention of caring adults more than ever. Help a youngster today with homework and reading in our afterschool programs (M-Th 3:15-4:30).
Guest Speaker Series
Seen a school budget lately? Field trips just don’t make the cut anymore. In addition to filling that gap by providing field trips in our own program, Camp Fire’s guest speaker series brings a field trip to our afterschool program and exposes kids to possibilities they have never even heard of. Got a fascinating career or expertise? Come share it and open up a world to our kids. (M-Th 4:15-5:30).
Check a principal’s pocket—nothing but lint in there. While schools benefit from our programs, they increasingly don’t have the cash to contribute. Camp Fire’s fundraisers help secure funds for us to provide our free programs to kids. Volunteers are crucial to making these nights a success, whether they serve as greeters, bartenders, or all-around helping hands.

Camp Namanu Work Weekends
Set on 552 forested acres along the Sandy River, Camp Namanu helps schools combat the “summer slide” by filling the out-of-school months with unique outdoor learning for over 1,100 kids each summer. Every few months dozens of volunteers gather at Namanu for a weekend to clear trails, remove ivy, and prime the camp for kid use. Stay in one of our rustic cabins for the entire weekend or just come for a day of fun and elbow grease with other volunteers.
