Highlighted Volunteer Opportunity: Camper Companion

Camp Quality's philosophy centers on the companionship of 1:1 adult volunteers assigned to every child who registers for summer camp. The dedication and commitment of our companions is the backbone of our program. We need you!

Our first year with the Camper Companion model was a huge success! While we didn't reach our desired 1:1 companion to camper ratio,  we're confident that that 2019 will bring us to that goal. Join us next year! Dates are already confirmed:

July 29 - August 2, 2019 

Our campers come from beautifully diverse backgrounds and we will strive for our companions to reflect that. POCI highly encouraged to apply!

To be a camper companion, you must be available for the entire week of camp, be a minimum of 18 years of age, and complete the following steps:


Pass a background check

Complete a face-to-face interview (FaceTime/Skype available if you live outside the Twin Cities)

Notification of acceptance to participate as a volunteer at Camp Quality

* Attend one mandatory Volunteer Training (2019 dates TBD)

Camp Quality Companions come from all walks of life--teachers, college students, lawyers, empty nesters, servers and baristas, young professionals, retirees, firefighters, former campers and more. No special skill or medical training is needed. Camp Quality companions must be willing to invest their time, energy and heart into the experience of their camper . . .but the return is priceless.
