Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Camp Sunshine! Our 2016 Summer Camp volunteer process is now closed. To be considered as a potential volunteer for our 2017 Summer Camp, please check our website in January of 2017 for details.
Below is the process for submitting an application to volunteer each year.
1. Download, print and complete the New Volunteer Application. Please note that the volunteer application does include a criminal background check.
2. Print 3 Personal Reference Forms and give them to the three individuals you list as references on your application. Each reference should return his/her completed form directly to Camp Sunshine as soon as possible.
3. Once your completed application form and all three personal reference forms have been received at Camp Sunshine, you will be contacted to schedule an in-person interview in March.
It is important to understand that if you are selected as a volunteer for Camp Sunshine's Summer Camp, you will be expected to volunteer for an entire session of Summer Camp; each session is 6 days in length and it is an overnight camp. Once you have successfully volunteered at Summer Camp, you are then eligible to volunteer at other Camp Sunshine recreational and house programs throughout the year. Please contact Summer Camp Director Deanna Warren at 404-325-7979 if you have any questions about this process.
Camp Sunshine staff consists almost entirely of volunteers who donate their time and talent to create unforgettable memories for children with cancer and their families. Hundreds of dedicated volunteers participate in our programs each year. Many return again and again. They help with summer camp, family camp weekends, teen retreats, Camp Sunshine House programs and special events throughout the year. All of our programs are dependent on a willing community of volunteers.
Our camper's parents place tremendous trust in us to find, select and train the best individuals to whom they can entrust their children. We do not take our parents' trust lightly.
Non-Summer Camp Volunteers If you would like to volunteer with Camp Sunshine in a capacity other than Summer Camp, please read through the Volunteer Job Descriptions below and then complete the Non-Summer Camp Volunteer Application and mail it or fax it to the camp office.
You will need to complete at least one personal reference in order to complete the volunteer application process. You can download the Personal Reference Form and give it to the person who will act as your reference, to be mailed or faxed directly to Camp Sunshine.
Once Camp Sunshine receives your application, you will be contacted for an in-person interview with a Program Director. If you are accepted as a Camp Sunshine volunteer you will be scheduled to attend a volunteer training session. Those accepted as a Summer camp volunteer must attend the May orientation.
