Want to be a volunteer staff member at Camp Brave Trails?

Here are some things you should know!

Camp Brave Trails LGBTQ youth volunteer summer camp

At camp, our staff becomes a tight-knit family that rallies around a single mission, fostering the next generation of LGBTQ+ leaders. Brave Trails staff members are committed, dynamic, positive, energetic, patient, and give 100% to their campers and any task they are assigned, even the gritty ones like plunging toilets and loading a lot of heavy luggage. Life at camp requires staff members to have a strong understanding of boundaries and serve as a mentor and role model to our campers, not friends. This job is not for everyone! There will be early mornings, long days, late night and rustic environments.  It is our experience that the most successful staff members don’t mind getting dirty, have A LOT of energy and a good sense of humor, make a fool of themselves to make campers smile, can get along with all personality types, are GREAT communicators, and have a genuine passion for working with queer youth.

The success of Camp Brave Trails is due, in large part, to the quality of the staff we hire. Staff members make or break the experience each camper will have at camp. If you are ready to make a huge impact, work hard, and have the time of your life, apply now!
