Camp Wil-Lo-Linn is entirely volunteer run. The number of campers we can accept is determined by the number of adult volunteers we obtain. Thank you for being willing to donate your time and energy. Please read more below about what roles are available.
The campers of full-time (every day all week) volunteers who come to the onsite
volunteer training (June ?, 2022 9:30am-2pm) receive a 50% camper registration fee reimbursement at the close of camp.
WHAT CAN A CAMP WIL-LO-LINN VOLUNTEER DO?
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 in the unit leader who spends her/his time at camp working with another unit leader and Camp Aides to provide guidance to a group of 6 to 16 Girl Scouts or Tagalongs. Approximately 60 unit leaders are needed for the camp session.
We also need volunteers to stay for the Overnight! If your scout is staying, please consider staying yourself, and having fun with the girls! Volunteers who stay the night get dinner, breakfast, and lots of coffee!
ACTIVITY STATION LEADERS: We are always looking to introduce our campers to new experiences One way to do this is for adult volunteers to create, manage, or run specialized activity stations. Examples in the past include martial arts and self defense, different science stations, crafts, or outdoor survival skills. If you have a specific skill or hobby that you would like to share with our campers - please contact our camp director (email@example.com).
CORE STAFF: Camp Wil-Lo-Linn wouldn't take place if it weren't for the dedication of the Camp Director and the primary organizers who are known as the "Core Staff." This key group includes Director(s), Registrar(s), Business Manager, Volunteer Coordinator, Camp Aide Coordinator, Cook Shed Staff, Resource Coordinator, Craft Coordinator, Health/Safety Specialist (First Aider), Hospitality Coordinator, Thursday Night Coordinator, and interested volunteers. They meet on a monthly basis from January through June to make sure everything at camp runs smoothly. These positions are appointed by the Camp Director. We are always on the lookout for willing and dedicated people to be on the team.

Camp Wil-Lo-Linn is 100% volunteer run. Full time at-camp adult volunteers who complete the onsite training receive a 50% rebate on camper fees for 1 camper grades 1st through 6th and PAITs.
Pre-camp adult volunteers commit to specific responsibilities that do not require participation during camp. These positions are filled early in the planning season at the discretion of the Camp Director and the bulk of the work is completed prior to the final confirmation of campers.
At-camp adult volunteers are required to be registered Girl Scouts, have completed Girl Scout adult volunteer training - GS 101, Volunteer Essentials, Troop Safety, and have completed a council background check no earlier that two years prior to serving at camp. GS membership is purchased directly from Girl Scouts. There is a link on this site. The GS background check is triggered by the registration. Please contact the Wil-Lo-Linn registrar if background check request in not received within 48 hours of registration through council. GS online training can be accessed through links posted on our registration web page.
