Volunteering is a great way to stay connected and help out camp for generations to come!
South Mountain YMCA Camps is a great place to earn community service hours for both adults and young people. Most high schools, faith based youth organizations and scouting troops require community service hours and sometimes it can be hard to find a place to volunteer as a young person. There is never a shortage of volunteers needed for camp.
You can participate in individual activities and/or assist with a special camp project/event.
