Thank you for your interest in learning about volunteering at Camp Jabberwocky!

All our counselors are volunteers as well as our session directors. Please find a brief description of our volunteer opportunities below:



Counselors live along side campers in cabins and are responsible for the care of the campers in their cabins. We often have a 1:1 ratio, but work together as a family to provide the best care for each camper. Counselors help campers with all daily needs and work very long hours with very little time “off.” The days are very full, but the weeks fly by.

This job has been described as a “vacation from yourself” where you will work harder than you ever have, and you will never want it to end.


Activities Counselor:

During the morning, between breakfast and lunch, campers participate in classes in a range of different areas. An activities counselor is someone who facilitates classes during this morning time, in an area of their expertise.



Cooks are responsible for making breakfast and dinner daily. They are also responsible for shopping for and ordering food.


Other Opportunities:

If you are interested in volunteering in other ways, we have many areas available. Some opportunities include:

  • gardening
  • helping at the 5K
  • clean-up between sessions
  • camp set up week
  • painting/fix-up
  • cooking a meal
  • specific building projects
  • offering a specific class for a day or more (in the past this has included, poetry workshops, classes in felting, flower arranging, dance, acting, photography, art etc.)
