La Semana has been successful due to the volunteer efforts of the families of children attending the camp. All camp programs are planned and executed by the families involved. There are generally fewer than seven paid teachers for more than 400 campers. To encourage participation, we require a parent of all kindergarten through tenth grade campers to volunteer in some capacity, and camp fees are based on the amount of volunteer help provided. Please carefully consider the time your family is able to spend on camp related activities. The coordinators need to know that their volunteers will be able to fulfill their assigned responsibilities.

- The list of volunteer job descriptions is kept on Google Docs. When selecting a job title, click on it, and then click on the web link that appears just below it. This list includes both jobs that have been filled and jobs that still need volunteers.
Help Us Keep the Job Descriptions Up-to-Date and Accurate!
- Note: One of the goals for the La Semana planning committee is to collect information about each camp job and then create job descriptions for each job. The job descriptions will help volunteers chose jobs of interest and will serve as a road map for volunteers to as they carry out their tasks. From this link you can go to a Google Docs file folder containing each of the La Semana volunteer opportunities, sorted by committee. Each job description is editable by anyone. If you have done a camp job before, please find its job description and share your knowledge by adding your comments.
