Katerpillar Kids Camp Volunteer Positions

Katerpillar Kids Camp has four positions that are important for our campers’ safety and each camp’s success. Our volunteers are specifically chosen because of their unique qualities and aptitude for their position. If you are interested in being part of Katerpillar Kids Camp, a one-on-one meeting with the camp coordinator is required. The camp coordinator will contact you to set up a meeting after your application is received and screened.

Let’s explore each volunteer opportunity.
