Guide Volunteer Description

Support Staff

Support staff make camp run smoothly by assisting with the set-up and tear-down of camp, by aiding in the various crafts that are available for campers, and the preparing and cleaning up camp activities. Becoming a support staff is a great way to be introduced into how a typical week of camp runs, making it perfect for first-time volunteers.


Specialized Staff

We need volunteers with specific training, interests, and skills in the following areas:

  • Nurses
  • Kitchen Staff
  • Photographers
  • Musicians/Singers
  • Behavioral Coaches

If you are willing to share any of these skills with Hope’s Haven and our campers, please contact us.


Additional Roles

Financial Support

As with all ministries, funds are needed. As we look to the Lord to expand camp, we need to purchase more food, supplies for games/activities, etc. For just $600, you can sponsor a child for the week. For a detailed list of giving opportunities, click here. We appreciate your generosity. God has been so good!


Prayer Coordinator
