Volunteers Needed!

Camp Hawkins is a summer camp for children with heart disease and their siblings. We provide our campers a traditional summer camp experience while an on-site medical staff cares for campers’ medical needs. We are looking for volunteers to help plan and/or attend camp. Volunteers attending camp will need to attend from 6:00 PM Sunday, June 26th to 12:00 PM Thursday, June 30th. All volunteers attending camp will need to pass a background check.

Volunteer Application

Open the registration form using the link above, complete the form, and save the completed document to your computer. Please email your completed registration to volunteers@camphawkins.org. If you would prefer to send us a paper copy, please email us letting us know that you are interested in camp and sending your application.

Volunteer positions currently open include:

Program Directors

We are currently looking for individuals to plan certain camp programs. Programs needing directors include Music and Zip Lines and Ropes Course (must have proper certification). Do you have a special talent you want to share at camp? Feel free to contact us. Program Directors serve on the Planning Committee year-round and will need to attend camp.

Registered Nurses and Physicians

Under the direction of the on-site physicians, camp nurses will dispense medications, perform basic first aid and triage ill children presenting to the infirmary. Based on the level of interest, registered nurses and physicians may be allowed to attend part of the camp session rather than the entire session.

Cabin Counselor

Cabin counselors will be assigned a single cabin group for the four-day camp session. They will accompany their cabin to camp activities during the day and sleep in their cabin overnight (another counselor will also be assigned to sleep in camper cabins overnight).

Activity Counselor

Activity counselors are assigned one or more specific programs and assist that program’s director. They are also assigned to sleep in a camper cabin overnight.


We need at least one, preferably more, certified lifeguard to attend camp if we are to allow campers to use the swimming pool. Other staff, including a member of the medical staff will be assigned as “lookouts” to assist the lifeguard.

Camp Photographer

Our Camp Photographer will be responsible for taking all picture during camp. These pictures will include the campers participating in the various camp activities (i.e. arts and crafts, field games, swimming, etc.) as well as group pictures of each cabin with their counselors and a picture at the end of camp with everyone involved (i.e. campers, counselors, volunteers, medical staff, etc.). Please plan on providing your own camera if you are interested in this position.

If you are interested in helping make our camp a success this year or have a special talent or skill that you would like to contribute to camp, e-mail Chesy Nichols, our volunteer coordinator, at volunteers@camphawkins.org.
