Each Summer Fort Wilderness utilizes hundreds of volunteers and leaders to help minister to our family and youth campers at our three sites: Main Camp, Adventure Outpost and Leadership Lab. There are a wide variety of areas to serve in: camp counselor, kitchen (Dishcrew and Cooks), maintenance, accommodations, lifeguards, program, Staff RAs, Nature Center, Woodshop Teachers... and many more!


For any food allergy, you must email the Registrar no less than 2 weeks before the first day of camp. No exceptions. Email the Registrar Jackie at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
