How to Get Involved

COVID-19 update

Due to safety concerns we will not be hosting in-person events for Camp Erin 2020. Registered campers and families will have the opportunity to participate in alternative events throughout the summer.

We are still accepting donations to support grieving families throughout the year. Interested volunteers will be added to our 2021 list.


Volunteering at Camp Erin

There are many ways to volunteer at Camp Erin! Volunteers can serve for the full camp weekend or can join us as one-day volunteers at camp. Volunteers in a camper-focused role provide emotional support for campers, act as good listeners and companions, and contribute to the supervision of campers at all times. Full-weekend volunteers are required to attend training prior to camp. 

Other volunteer jobs include setting up for camp, working behind the scenes to organize supplies and make sure things run smoothly, or working on projects outside of the camp weekend. Camp Erin volunteers work together in conjunction with other members of the Camp Erin team. Training and orientation are provided in advance. 

Please Send us an email or call 503-215-4829 for more information on volunteer opportunities.
