Volunteers

Camp Volunteers

Support volunteers set up the May “hot dog and S’more station” by the campfire.

Volunteer Opportunities

If you are looking for a way to get involved in a worthwhile cause and help children overcome their grief due to a loss of someone very close to them, this may be the ideal volunteer opportunity. Whether you’re a man or woman, a young adult or more mature — we’ll help you find a home for that need to “give back to the community”.

Volunteer Qualifications

All volunteers are required to complete an application, interview, and orientation.Volunteer Opportunities include:

  • Big Buddy – a volunteer who is paired with a child for the weekend/day
  • Support Volunteer – someone who gives blocks of time during the weekend/day to help set up various activities and keep the program running smoothly
  • Junior Volunteer – a sixteen or seventeen-year-old who plays a supportive role in assigned activities

A certified archery instructor volunteers his time to keep the archery range activity safe.

We could not offer Camp Courage and the Pre-Camp and Post-Camp Grief Support Groups without the support of our wonderful volunteers! These men and women make a difference in the lives of children by giving their time and encouragement during our bereavement camps.

The Turtle

The symbol of the turtle was provided to Camp Courage by artist David Armstrong, and signifies healing, protection and courage.

Healing

"Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.” -Tori Amos
