In-Kind Giving Program

Camp of the Hills serves over 7,500 people each year through summer camps, retreats and volunteer programs. Much of our ministry programming is offered at little or no cost, affording children and low-income families an opportunity to experience God in the unique camp environment. We value your help in achieving this mission by volunteering your time and expertise to help off-set our annual budget.

Ways to Get Involved

There are so many ways that you can partner with us and to get involved at camp. We have construction / manual labor which would look like working out outdoor / indoor projects alongside our maintenance team. Some examples would consist of painting, renovation products for facilities, cedar clearing and many more! Food service is an area that we need help in and this would consist of helping prep and prepare meals with our kitchen coordinator during our retreat weekends / outdoor education events throughout the fall and spring season. You would be able to work in the kitchen with other volunteers / staff members to serve for our various events that take place at camp. We are also in need of people who love to participate in organizational tasks that would want to organize supplies for our staff members. Some examples of this would be organizing our craft room, laundry room, and office materials. You are welcome to volunteer as an individual or bring a group of people to complete these tasks.
