SWAT Information

 

If your schedule does not allow you to join us for 3-5 days this Summer, but you would like to volunteer, join our SWAT Team! There are many pre-camp and end-of-camp jobs that we refer to as SWAT jobs, and the volunteers who fulfill them become our SWAT Team. 

 

SWAT jobs require a minimum of eight (8) hours of volunteer time and guarantee placement of one camper in either session of camp. SWAT jobs that run for four (4) hours must be combined with another four-hour job to total the eight volunteer hours.
