Applications are Now Open for Summer Camp Mania Volunteer Counselors!

The Spring semester is heating up, and summer may feel far away with various competitions, AP tests, and finals left to tackle; however, it’s never too early to solidify your summer plans!

If you are a hard-working high school student looking to gain valuable recreation experience while earning volunteer hours, apply to be a Summer Camp Mania Volunteer Counselor! Summer Camp Mania is Southlake’s premier day camp that provides world-class experiences to our campers in a fun, safe, and structured environment.

We are looking for various Volunteer Counselors to help us administer this year’s camp, run fun games and crafts, and be a helping hand to Camp Staff. Volunteering at Camp Mania is a competitive and prestigious city volunteer opportunity that allows volunteers to earn up to 80 hours of volunteer service! Volunteering at Camp Mania is the ideal way to knock out that 100-hour volunteer requirement while having a great time and helping create life-long memories for our campers.

Ready to solidify your summer plans and join our world-class Programs team? Here are the criteria to become our next Summer Camp Mania Volunteer:

  • Be a part of Volunteer Southlake (Register Here)
