For us to succeed each year we will need volunteers like you to help us create and execute our plan for Dragonfly Forest. At Dragonfly Forest our Volunteers do more than just provide labor, they are an integral part of our philosophy and desire for community involvement.
Become A Volunteer
Adults come to volunteer and work at Dragonfly Forest for many reasons: some want to have a summer of fun, some want to give back to their community, but some come for other reasons.
Last summer we asked our counselors about the personal and professional goals they hoped to achieve while at Dragonfly Forest. We learned that they were interested in the ways that camp would contribute to their aspirations to be doctors, teachers, lawyers, social workers, and nurses by helping them develop skills in many different areas, such as leadership, organization, group dynamics, advocacy, and program development. In addition, we learned that counselors felt that their camp experience would help improve their family lives and personal relationships by improving their patience, cooperation, flexibility, motivation, and enthusiasm.
What was even more interesting than the goals themselves were some of the results, such as a program leader who developed new teaching strategies for her special education classroom, and the counselor who used his background in biology to learn more about campers’ medical issues. This personal and professional development means that Dragonfly Forest is a place that is magical not only for the kids, but also for the adults.
In 2011, Dragonfly Forest had over 174 Volunteers who gave us over 14,486 hours that were valued at $ 317,750*
* Value of Hours is based on Bureau of Labor and Statistics – Occupational Employment Statistics and Wages, May 2010
