Volunteers doing arts and crafts


Through volunteering, you can make a difference not only in a child’s life, but also your own.

Become a part of Camp Knutson and make life-long friends while creating a magical experience for campers!

Camp Knutson Volunteers

Shari Schumacher 1As a Camp Knutson volunteer, you will receive training and have the opportunity to work with campers on crafts, sailing, biking, reading, and much more. Between camp sessions, volunteers help clean the campgrounds and do routine maintenance. 

If fundraising is more your style, each year the Camp Knutson Volunteer Organization sponsors two very successful fundraising events: Night Under the Stars and a Tasting Luncheon. Volunteers are also needed to assist with grant writing.

In addition to the direct service work, Camp Knutson Volunteers offer an opportunity to meet new and old friends and be creative within the organization. Volunteer, and the life you change may be your own!
