Volunteer Opportunities

There are over 45 merit badges this summer and we are looking for experts just like you to enhance our classes. If you are a merit badge counselor and would like to offer your expertise during your week at summer camp please contact the Program Director. Your assistance during merit badge classes will help us provide a resource for boys.

Commissioner Opportunities

Camp Shands enlists the services of a dedicated group of volunteers who provide general support to Troops while at camp. Camp Commissioners make sure that every Troop has a great experience and receives any needed assistance. Commissioners will let camp staff know if a unit needs special equipment, campsite maintenance or program help. The Commissioners also assist in the check-out process. Anyone interested in spending a week at Camp Shands as a Camp Commissioner should refer to the Volunteer Interest form.
