Positions

Program Assistants

Jennifer LennonThe camp Program Team includes people who intend to serve the community by making Community Sourced Programming (CSP) offerings.

We strive to build a robust team for each camp. We want to provide a wide variety of program offerings for all ages. We also value choice, freedom and exploration for our team members. We want them to make offerings that appeal to them. We don't want them to be constrained to work with a specific age group or demographic.

Requests

3monkeysFamily HEART Camp depends on volunteers to create a safe, trusting, and respectful community. We are deeply grateful to those who offer their time and talent in this way. We also strive to make camp affordable for our participants and sustainable in the long run.

To contribute to sustainability and ease for our camps, we invite each volunteer to contribute some or all of the base cost of attendance at camp.

Will you please consider your financial means and the level of joy you might find in contributing in this way? Will you make a contribution that works for you?

If you are planning to bring any family members, we also request you contribute financially to offset or cover their room and board costs. We also welcome you to contribute a higher amount, if you are joyfully able and willing to support FHC in this way.

Here is a table showing the mimimum requested contribution for volunteers and staff family members for each camp.
