Adult volunteers are critical to the success of our camp program. Being an Adult volunteer at Mountaindale West Day Camp is a rewarding, fun-filled experience. Not only are you able to provide young girls with an outdoor experience, but you also get to do this in a supportive and well-planned environment. Adults who volunteer find that they gain a wealth of experience and knowledge that they can use and pass on in other aspects of their lives. In return for volunteering, all full-time, full-week adult volunteers ensure that their child or children will have a spot at camp.
We look forward to having you join us at camp for a week where memories will be made!
Volunteers must register for camp during the registration period.
Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and must be registered Girl Scout members for the current membership year. You can register at our council’s website. The membership year runs from October 1, 2018 - September 30, 2019.
Volunteers must pass a background check conducted by the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington (GSOSW) Council within the past three years from the start of camp
Volunteers must be willing to be at camp for the entire week. Our camp does not offer part-time positions. Our philosophy is that consistency within the unit, with the same 2 adults, makes for a smoother week for everyone. Part time unit leaders, switching during the week, disrupt the flow of the unit.
Volunteers must attend all required training sessions for camp.
Volunteers must complete any online Girl Scout trainings that are required by GSOSW. You will be notified by the Volunteer Coordinator if you are required to complete any online trainings.
Volunteer leaders of Junior units and older should be able to commit to spending Thursday night with their unit.
During the registration process, you will have an opportunity to express the areas at camp where you are interested in working. Please be sure to list any skills, hobbies, degrees, trainings, and certifications as this will help us match you more closely to your strengths. You will also have the opportunity to choose the program levels that you are interested in working with. Please note that Junior units and older do spend the night on Thursday night.
