Apply to Volunteer

Thanks for your interest in volunteering for Reading Camp! We rely on volunteers to help make a difference in the lives of kids.

Volunteer applications must be submitted by April 15, 2017 in order to allow time for background checks to be completed. All volunteers must apply to participate each year, regardless of past Reading Camp experience.

In order that we may provide the camp at no charge to all campers, we must ask the volunteers of overnight camps to cover the cost for their room and board at camp and background check, much like what is done for mission trips. The fee includes all meals for the week.

  • Irvine Overnight Camp: $452/ person
  • Pine Mountain Overnight Camp: $489/adult; $381/volunteer 18 and under

We understand that this amount may be more than you can afford, and we do not want it to be a stumbling block to you volunteering with us. Please contact our office to discuss ways that you might fundraise your room and board expenses.

Additionally, a limited number of sponsored volunteer positions are available for each overnight camp, as grant funding allows us to cover the expenses of a few volunteers. If you are a student, or otherwise unable to pay for your room and board, please contact us to inquire about sponsored volunteer positions.

There is no fee associated with volunteering at any of the day camps.
