  • waiting tables

Other opportunities on certain weekends include:

  • counseling*

  • cleanup

*Positions may be filled by former summer staff only

How is TRANSPORTATION handled?

Plan to be at camp no later than 6:30 p.m., unless prior arrangements have been made with The Wilds office.
2-day camps run through Saturday evening around 8:30

Weekend Volunteers will receive several perks such as a t-shirt, The Snack and Cool Beans credit, and a voucher to use in our General Store.
