Volunteer FAQ

Regarding Camp Volunteers, what are you looking for?

Camp Wieser is magical and memorable in large part due to the wonderful volunteers who return year after year to witness again the amazing benefits for our Campers. Although many of our volunteers re-up every summer, we are always looking for enthusiastic, empathetic, safety-conscious people who make our Campers their top priority. Possible positions include Greeter, Activity Manager, Construction, Shuttle Driver, Family Host, Spa Staff, Wieser Warrior (must be at least 18 years of age) and Medical Assistant.

What are the qualifications for a Volunteer to participate at camp?

A love of people and a caring heart are two qualities we find in our volunteers. Some of the volunteer activities call for stamina and strength, but don’t let that stop you from considering it. Volunteers all complete an online application form, even if they volunteered before. Volunteer applications are located on the Volunteer page. On the application, you will be asked for your immunization/vaccination history. So have that ready when you begin the application. Interested in volunteering? Learn more here.

What are the qualifications for a Spa Volunteer to participate at camp?

Spa Volunteers must have a current credential in their specialty and have knowledge of and experience with the unique needs of cancer patients. All Spa Volunteers must complete an application every year, even if they served camp as a Spa Volunteer in a prior year.

Do you provide transportation for Volunteers?

We ask all our volunteers to get to Camp Wieser on their own, although many carpool. Once at Camp, you will have all you need provided for you such as food, beverages, and lodging. When you submit your Volunteer Application form you will be directed to make an optional donation toward your inspiring weekend at Camp Wieser.
