Camp Outright Seeks Volunteer Staff Members
04/16/2015 – 11:17 AM | No Comment

Starksboro, VT—Camp Outright, a program of Outright Vermont and the Common Ground Center, is now recruiting volunteer staff for its fifth season. Camp Outright is a week long residential summer camp for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and allied youth (LGBTQQA or queer) ages 13-18. Camp Outright relies on the support of a dedicated crew of adult volunteers to make this week possible.

Melissa Murray, Outright’s Executive Director and one of the co-founders of Camp Outright, encourages folks to volunteer: “Campers call Camp Outright a ‘queertastic homotopia’. Adult volunteers are an important part of creating this space. So many youth are denied the summer camp experience because they’re queer or don’t fit into the gender binary. Camp Outright needs adult volunteers to serve as staff and role models and help make this week magical for queer and allied youth.”

Folks of all identities are encouraged to apply. In addition to a firm understanding of queer identities:

A Camp Outright volunteer staff member is:

  • Able to uphold the Camp Outright mission and values within the camp community.

  • Dedicated to ensuring the safety, fun, growth, and well being of all campers.

  • Committed to bringing out the best in both self and others.

  • Knowledgeable of and responsible to outlined standards, policies, and procedures.

  • Consistent, patient, and enthusiastic.

  • Invested in advancing social justice ideals.

All Camp Outright volunteer staff must:

  • Complete the application and interview process and pass a criminal background check.

  • Attend staff training beginning on August 14th 2015.

  • Be onsite as a residential staff member at Common Ground Center from August 16-22, 2015.

  • Be at least 21 years old (please contact us if you’re under 21 but have extensive camp experience)

Please submit applications by June 30, 2015.
