Winter and summer, Unitarian Universalist–oriented youth camps attract adult volunteers from throughout the Pacific Southwest District to serve as Camp Ministers, Deans, and YRUU Advisors. The Congregational Life Staff at the PSWD coordinates these giving individuals who lead and inspire our campers – and learn something along the way.
Contact the Camping Ministries Director firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about these opportunities.
We conduct training for teen counselors who spend the days and nights with their group of campers, supervising as well as supporting them and providing a great camp experience overall. Among trained counselors, the ties to camp are strong. Counselors often return to volunteer well into their 20s, ensuring that the next generation has a rich and relevant camp experience.
Registered nurses and other medical professionals have the opportunity to support young campers in their Camp de Benneville Pines experience. Health Supervisors provide care and first aid for campers and staff and oversee the administration of medications to campers and teenage staff. In this remote wilderness setting, campers and staff occasionally require emergency treatment. The Health Supervisor is required to travel with emergent patients and oversee diagnostics and treatment at a healthcare facility.
The Health Supervisor also organizes paperwork and works closely with the Camp Director to ensure safe and healthy conditions for all staff and campers. These positions are most-often volunteers.
Contact Camp Director Janet James to discuss these opportunities.
