At YMCA Camp Y-Koda a volunteer's time and talent can go a long way to help a child, the community and the environment.

Volunteers come from all walks of life but they share a common trait - wanting to make a difference.  Students, corporations, families, camp alumni, youth, outdoor enthusiasts, and community members all have something to offer. 

Sometimes the most valuable gift that one can give is the gift of time. Camp Y-Koda welcomes volunteers of all ages, and has many volunteer opportunities to match your passion, skills and schedule.

There are many personal benefits to volunteering. Volunteers often experience improvement in feeling a sense of purpose and meaning, time management, mood and heart health. Volunteering also helps to reduce stress, promotes personal growth and self-esteem, helps us live longer, brings people together and strengthens the community.

Year Round Volunteer Opportunities at Camp Y-Koda include:

  • Help maintain camp, build new facilities, improve existing facilities, landscape projects and much more.... 
  • Fundraising events
  • Administrative tasks
  • Promote camp in your local schools & community
  • Camp Board of Directors and committee members
  • Assist with leading activities

Ready to make a difference that will impact generations to come? To inquire about volunteering please call us at 920-467-6882 ext.: 307 or email our Director of Community Engagement at hnitsch@sheboygancountyymca.org.


Summer camp specific volunteer opportunities:

This summer we have many opportunities for adults and youth ages 12+ to volunteer with summer camp.

You won’t want to miss out on volunteering at Camp Y-Koda this summer. In addition to the valuable skills you’ll learn with us in summer, you’ll gain many friendships and rewarding experiences. Our volunteers are vital to our community and help make Camp Y-Koda grown where it is today.

This summer we have two different volunteer opportunities available. The first is the role of an Assistant Counselor which would be assisting our staff with the campers for the week along with various tasks. The second opportunity for our summer camp program is to help serve breakfast from 6:30am-8:15am on a Friday morning to our sleepover campers.
