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.

Winter Camp Applications

We are currently accepting volunteer nurse, counselor and doctor applications for Winter Camp (February 16-18) and we invite interested volunteers to apply by January 7th. We will be scheduling phone interviews with new counselor applicants. Unlike during the summer, nurse AND counselor applications will be approved and accepted on a rolling / first come, first served basis. Please apply as soon as you know you’re available to ensure positions are still available. All volunteers must be at least 21 years old. Transportation will be provided by bus from Bloomington and Madison. For additional information, please visit the Winter Camp webpage or email alison@campodayin.org with questions.
