Volunteer Opportunities

Camp Odayin is a special place for children with heart disease and all our counselors, nurses and cardiologists are volunteers. We would not exist without the generosity of the amazing people who donate their time for five days. Thank you for your interest in joining us (and more importantly, some incredible kids) at camp! Throughout the year, we are joined by exceptional volunteers to support and guide our campers as nurses, counselors and cardiologists at camp. We welcome volunteer staff at Winter Camp in February, Residential Camp in July, Day Camp in August and Family Camp in October and November. Please email us for information or to be added to our mailing list to receive information about volunteer opportunities.

We are fully staffed for Winter Camp! Please contact Alison Boerner (alison@campodayin.org / 651.351.9185) if you would like to inquire about being added to our waitlist to volunteer as a counselor or nurse. Thank you!

Travel Support

Thanks to the Joe Gillis Memorial, there are transportation funds available to accepted staff members who live more than 250 miles away. Camp Odayin will reimburse up to $300 for travel costs (airfare, gas, hotels, etc). So, don’t let living far away keep you from applying to volunteer!

Camp Odayin serves all people regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status.
