0AMT Day Camp is 100% volunteer organized and directed. Many people comprise our volunteer staff - camper parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends, and people in the community who just want to make a difference in the lives of young people. Here are some of the jobs that volunteers fill.


UNIT LEADERS:
The most crucial volunteer for camp is the unit leader who spends their time at camp working with another unit leader and two Program Aides to provide guidance to a group of 12 to 16 campers. Positions are available in:

  • Daisy units (girls entering grade 1 in the fall )
  • Brownie units (girls entering grades 2 – 3 in the fall)
  • Junior units (grades 4 – 6 in the fall)
  • PAIT unit (grade 7 in the fall)
  • Pixies/Widgets units (ages 3 – 5 in the fall)
  • Boys (grades 1 – 7 in the fall)

We offer a $10 discount for each camper of a full time volunteer. (Note: this does not apply to tagalongs, boy tagalongs, PAs, VAs, and VAITs)


HOW TO VOLUNTEER:

To keep campers safe, all volunteers working with campers must register with Girl Scouts and go through an application and screening process. To volunteer for camp, please complete the volunteer registration. If you have not registered with Girl Scouts for the current membership year, you will be asked to complete the Girl Scout registration and pay a $25 registration fee. If this is the case, someone will contact you. For more information or questions, please email directors@amtdaycamp.com


VOLUNTEER TRAINING:

Training is MANDATORY for volunteers. This evening training, which includes dinner, also gives you an opportunity to meet your unit co-leader and PAs, and start planning camp.  Training and orientation  will be held on Monday, May 20, 2019 at Community of Christ Church, 5170 NE Five Oaks Dr.,Hillsboro, 97124
 New Leaders please come at 5:45 pm and returning leaders, please come at 6:30 pm.

CAMP SET-UP:

In the past AMT Day Camp has offered a separate "outdoor" training. This year we will incorporate it into the "set-up" day. Set-up day gives you a chance to meet with your unit co-leader, get your camp site set up, take a camp tour, chat with the directors, tie up loose ends, and most importantly get ready for the girls.  Set up day will be on Saturday, June 22, 2019 from 12:00 pm-4:00 pm at Mountaindale. 

We understand first time volunteers can feel overwhelmed. Please don’t be! We think you will find this to be an amazing week with lots of support and fun! Your presence helps make a lifelong memory for the girls.

Still feeling overwhelmed? Please email your questions or concerns to our camp directors!
