Adult Volunteer Opportunities

 

Note: Please check back in January for volunteer opportunities next summer.

The successful operation of Korean Culture Camp depends on volunteers. We encourage volunteers from every family, and many families have two or more volunteers at camp each year. There are many different areas in which to volunteer at camp. Below is a list and description of our volunteer areas. Please check back in January of each year to register as a volunteer. 

    All volunteers, teachers and teens who are 18 years of age or older as of the first day of camp are required to complete a background check. There is no cost to you.

    Our volunteers find their time at camp to be fun and rewarding. Without your involvement KCC would not be possible. Thank you in advance.
