Volunteer Opportunities

Camp Odayin would not exist without the generosity of the amazing people who donate their time! Throughout the year, we are joined by exceptional volunteers to support and guide our campers as volunteer nurses, camp counselors and cardiologists at camp. We welcome volunteer staff at Winter Camp in February, Residential Camp in July, and Family Camp in October and November.

Camp volunteers must be at least 20 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.

Summer Camp Applications

In 2021, due to the pandemic, summer camp includes five day camp experiences throughout the Midwest, a graduate retreat in Crosslake, MN, and a Hearts@Home virtual camp.  During a typical year, Residential Camp is offered as three five-day sessions in Crosslake, MN and one five-day session in Elkhorn, WI.  All of our summer camp programs are staffed with volunteer camp counselors, nurses, and cardiologists.  The application for Summer Camp is typically available in early March.  In 2021, the application closed on June 6th.  Please don’t hesitate to email alison@campodayin.org with any questions or to be added to our email list to receive an application.
