Volunteers built Camp New Hope, and volunteer opportunities are plentiful here. Many people volunteer to help during summer camp, and find themselves wanting to come back again and again. Our Board of Directors is also made up of volunteers who share their professional expertise and leadership talent. College and high school students may wish to volunteer for a day to find out more about employment opportunities in the field of human services.
Another delightful and special way to volunteer is as an entertainer. Do you play music? Can you demonstrate a dance? Do you like to tell stories, paint faces, or put on a puppet show? Our campers relish these opportunities at camp and respite. If you have such a talent, consider sharing it with our campers!
