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.

The staff application for our 2018 Residential Camp and Day Camp programs is now available! We invite applicants interested in volunteering at our Minnesota camps to apply by May 1st and applicants interested in volunteering at our Wisconsin camp to apply by June 1st.

NURSES – If you are interested in volunteering during one of Camp Odayin’s Minnesota summer camps, please contact alison@campodayin.org before submitting an application. Due to our rolling acceptance, position availability is limited.
