Summer Volunteer Opportunities

For students ages 15 and older

Our Adventures in History Summer Camp is a great way to earn community service hours. And it’s an excellent opportunity for prospective future teachers.

Dates: June 4 – August 9, 2019

Shifts: Volunteers must be able to work a full week of camp at a time. Shifts are Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and 1 – 6 p.m.

Duties: Assist teacher and children with camp crafts, activities, breaks, and classroom organization. Follow all classroom rules and set good examples.

Deadline and requirements: Fill out the volunteer application and submit it with a teacher’s letter of recommendation by May 9, 2019 (please apply earlier if possible). Students will be contacted for an interview with their parent or guardian at the History Center. Volunteers also attend a mandatory orientation and complete Orange County and state requirements for background screening by two weeks before their volunteering begins.
