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. Camp volunteers must be at least 21 years old. In order to foster independence, we do not permit family members of Odayin campers to volunteer during a camp session when their relative will be a camper. We welcome family members of campers to apply and attend during a different session. Please email us for information or to be added to our mailing list to receive information about volunteer opportunities.
