Due to the change in location, we can no longer offer a nice lodge for parents to stay. We hope that we can continue to have volunteers but we may end up phasing out this option if it is not enjoyable for parents to be in a bunkhouse.
Parent Volunteers - You will be assigned to different tasks based on your interests and skills. Most often needed for kitchen shifts. Volunteers receive lodging for the week in one of the bunkhouses located on the camp property as well as all meals and a camp shirt. The bunkhouse has 6 bunks, heat and air, and a bathroom that has 2 showers, 2 toilets, and 2 sinks. There is no lounge area or kitchen. You provide your own bedding and towels. To apply go the the Jobs page.
And while Parent Volunteers are a big part of the behind the scenes action at ETUSC and around the grounds quite a bit, we ask that you give campers the space they need to have a full and autonomous camp experience. Some kids don't mind a parent in the background, but we feel it is best to allow them their freedom and independence.
Parent Lodging Only - Parents wishing to stay at camp instead of driving home or getting a hotel can stay in the Parent bunkhouse as well for $300 per person for the week. This includes all meals during camp. You may also choose to stay for $200 and get meals on your own in town. You provide your own bedding and towels.
