Rotary Camp have many volunteer Opportunities that are perfect for Kiwanis Clubs, Rotary Clubs, Corporate Businesses, Scout projects and other youth and volunteer organizations.

You can be sure that the staff and campers at the Akron Rotary Camp will appreciate your donation of time and attention. We have many opportunities for volunteer involvement that range from working with children and adults with special needs, to helping maintain and improve the camp grounds.

Volunteer Opportunities may include:

  • Direct interaction with children and adults with special needs.
  • Assisting with meal-prep in the kitchen
  • Serving dinner at Summer Camp Cookouts (including set-up and clean-up)
  • Leading or coordinating a craft, nature or sports and games activity
  • Maintain and improve the camp grounds
  • Assist with fundraising events
  • Help with camp clean-up events
  • Organizing and clean-up of program areas
  • Assist during holiday parties - running craft stations or by donating items.

With respite programs offered 3 times a month, a sibling program, and summer camps in Summit and Portage counties, there are more than enough opportunities to be involved in the fun! If you would like to work directly with campers, we ask that you complete a volunteer application and provide 3 references. Volunteers, 18 and older, must have a background check before they are allowed to work around children. The Akron Area YMCA offers background checks at no cost to volunteers. Results must be received before work on site is allowed. Volunteers also have to attend a volunteer orientation and camp tour prior to volunteering.

If you would like to volunteer with our campers, or help to maintain camp grounds, please reach out to Amanda Warner at (330) 644-4512, or amandaw@akronymca.org.
