Camps would not be the same without our volunteer coaches. When coaches volunteer their time at camp, this seemingly small act creates a huge step forward in establishing trust in the campers’ lives, since they are viewed as the first adult who isn’t paid to be around them.
Coaching at a FHFTC camp can be challenging and powerful. Because of the sensitive nature of these teens lives, all coaches must go through extensive training. This ensures a better experience for both the coaches and the campers – which is supported by our 90% return rate for volunteers.
Each camp requires 40-50 volunteers. As we strive to grow the number of camps each summer, that means we need to recruit more volunteers. The Great Adventure Camp volunteers must be at least 21 years old and 24 years old for CrossRoads. All volunteers must be committed and patient.
