We’re excited you’d like to get involved with Camp Fire! Here are some of the ways you can join us in our mission to help youth find their sparks, lift their voices, and discover who they are.

Volunteer at Camp Tannadoonah

We have many different volunteer opportunities at Camp Tannadoonah. During the spring and fall we have work days at camp, and volunteers can help rake leaves, plant flowers, clean up cabins, and getting camp looking great for campers. Volunteers can also help with projects like building benches, making repairs to facilities, painting and staining, building bunk beds, and other small construction projects.

During the summer camp season, we have volunteers who come to camp and lead programs for campers. Volunteers come for one week or more than one week of camp, and lead classes like art programs, sailing, science classes, musical theater, sports programs, and robotics classes. If you have an idea that you’d like to bring to camp and teach to the campers, please let us know! We’re always on the lookout for new and exciting program ideas.

If you would like to volunteer at camp, please call us at 574-387-6095 or email Amber@tannadoonah.org to get more information.

Become a Club Leader

Camp Fire is in need of adult volunteer mentors (age 18 years and up). Based on nationally recognized programming, everything we do is intentional. Kids find caring adults committed to providing positive role models. The most important gift you can give is your time. Mentors provide the enthusiasm and passion to nurture today’s youth who want to shape the world. Camp Fire provides the opportunity to find their spark, lift their voice and discover their potential. Become a Leader or Co-Leader for a group of kids or for your own son or daughter’s club. If you would like to learn more about becoming a Club Leader, please call us at 574-387-6095 or email inf@riverbendcampfire.org.
