Volunteers

Volunteering at Camp Hobé will be one of the best experiences of your life! There is much to learn from our inspirational campers and we never run out of fun. Volunteers serve in these roles:

  • Counselors-in-Training (Kids Week and Day Camp / Hobe' Juniors only)
  • Cabin Counselors
  • Activity Directors or Counselors (nature studies, music, arts and crafts, field games, drama, archery, poetry and journals)
  • Kitchen staff (head cook, kitchen assistant)
  • Medical staff (nurse, physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant)
  • Lifeguards (WSI or Red Cross certified)

Commitment and Scheduling
We ask for a high level of commitment from our volunteers. It is critical that volunteers commit to remaining onsite for the entire camp session. Volunteers must stay overnight at camp during their chosen session, arriving for pre-camp onsite training and staying until after the campers leave. Volunteers may not leave during the camp session for appointments, errands, or other personal reasons. We make exceptions only for emergencies, like medical problems or family illness.

We have several reasons for this policy. Having the volunteers remain onsite continually helps ensure fluidity of the activity program, enhances safety, improves bonding with campers, and improves the overall experience for all volunteers. We thank you for your understanding.

Requirements
All volunteers must reapply each year, whether new or returning. Volunteers are chosen based on the applicant’s strengths, the camp’s needs, and past performance (for returning volunteers). We make hiring decisions carefully and we do not guarantee any applicant a spot at camp, whether you are new or have volunteered with us previously. To be considered, volunteers must meet these requirements:
