Camp Volunteers | Students

The camp season at Asbury Woods offers students ages 14 years old and older an opportunity to volunteer as Camp Assistants.  Working alongside Asbury Woods education staff, camp assistants gain valuable job-related skills while earning service hours, working with children, shadowing and learning from camp educators, and contributing to our community while enjoying the outdoors in a fun and meaningful way. This is a great opportunity for teens with an appreciation for nature, a love of the outdoors, and have a passion for working with children. Students chosen for this opportunity will be required to obtain appropriate clearances.
