2018 EIHPC - #12In order for us to operate a 24-hour-a-day camp for one week at such a low fee, our camp relies HEAVILY on volunteer help. If you are able to volunteer, please fill in the volunteer form and review our volunteer expectations at the bottom of this page. A schedule will be emailed out prior to the start of camp. We will try to fulfill all requests and obligations of each volunteer. Volunteers serve at the discretion of the EIHPC board. 


Volunteer Areas:

  • Boys/Girls Dorm:  Overnight 7:00 PM - 8:30 AM.  Bring flashlight, sleeping bag, cot, air mattress, etc.  Assist in snack bar during evening hours if scheduled.
  • Daytime Chaperone:  Supervise dorm and shower areas, replenish supplies in bathrooms, remove trash, etc.
  • Kitchen Help: Help with meal preparation, serving, and clean up. 
  • Nurses: Supervise campers taking medicine, assist with medical needs, administer first aid if needed, etc.
  • Saturday Clean-Up: Help with final clean-up of the dorms, bathrooms, kitchen, etc.
  • Other: If you have any talents or skills you would like to share with camp, please let us know.


All volunteers will have to complete a 2018 EIHPC - #7background check, liability release, and photo release authorization form.  We ask that if you have an opportunity to observe your child in lessons, please feel free, but do not be disruptive.  Any volunteer coaching from the side will be asked to leave the area immediately and will be prohibited from observing lessons for the rest of the week.  Our instructors are there to teach the kids, not the parents.

All volunteers are required to complete Hoof Beats, a volunteer training orientation provided by our camp that will take approximately 5-10 minutes, and become familiar with our volunteer expectations.  The Volunteer Schedule will be emailed out to the volunteers approximately 30 days before the start of camp.
