Camp Quest South Carolina is staffed and run entirely by adult volunteers (ages 18 and up) who take a time off of work or school to guide, challenge, listen to, chase after, and play outside with a big group of energetic, freethinking kids (and energetic, freethinking kids-at-heart!). Most Camp Quest volunteers love the experience so much that they keep coming back year after year.
If you are interested in being on staff camp, please complete the Online Staff Application Form which will be available January 2017.
Our team of directors will review the applications on a rolling basis and accept new staff as needed, based on qualifications and the number of camper registrations.
If you are an educator and would like to help with curriculum development, please email us at SouthCarolina@campquest.org. Program planning volunteers are not required to attend camp (unless you want to!), so this is ideal for someone who would like to contribute but isn’t able to spend a full week at camp.
Please note that all staff positions are unpaid volunteer positions. Staff must also arrive at camp a day early, one day before the start of camp.
Available Volunteer Staff Positions
- Cabin Leaders stay at camp for the full session, sleep in the cabins with the kids (and at least one co-counselor), and participate in activities and programs with the campers and other counselors throughout the day. This is the most high-energy position, but also potentially the most rewarding.
- Program Leaders plan, coordinate, and run programs and activities during the week of camp. Most Program Leaders stay for the full week of camp, but we occasionally have Program Leaders who only come for a day or two.
