Travel Chaperones Needed

For returning staff only: We need travel chaperones to chaperone camper buses and airport on Camper Travel Days (to and from camp). If you live near the bus stops or airports for campers and are available on Camper Travel days, reach out to your Operations Director to volunteer as a travel chaperone or indicate your interest in your Travel Form (Google form in the section above).

Staff Travel Scholarships

Except by bus, transportation costs for staff are not covered by Experience Camps. However, we have a Staff Travel Scholarship Request Form for staff who would otherwise be unable to attend camp without assistance. The stipend will be provided as a reimbursement and may cover only a portion of the cost of travel. Submit your request in the form above. Do not book any travel until you receive a response from ExCamps HQ (typically within 5-7 days). Reach out to your Operations Director or volunteers@experiencecamps.org with questions.
