Camp Good Sam
June 11 - July 19

Camp Good Sam is an initiative that is designed to address summer learning loss by utilizing a literary theme (book series) to guide program culture and learning goals. Basing all curriculum on the chosen book series, our campus transports our youth into the book they're reading. Volunteers are essential in making this program a success helping with daily activities. 


  • Volunteers MUST be Adults or Rising Juniors or Seniors in High School.
  • Volunteers MUST receive background check clearance prior to participation. (Exception of Classroom Decorator)
  • Volunteers MUST serve for a minimum of three hours a day and one day per week.
  • We do NOT accept court ordered service hours.
