Become a Camp Host

For those who love and want to share the magic of Westwind with others, check out our “Camp Host” volunteer program.

After applying and successfully attending trainings, volunteers sign up for days to help out at Westwind as a site host for our different rental groups. Volunteers stay in our cabin affectionately known as “The Roost,” and provide assistance and information to the group or groups on-site.

Possible duties from the Camp Host:

  • Rental group check-in
  • Site orientation
  • Hospitality and clean-up
  • Store sales
  • Clerical work
  • Site work

If you are interested in learning more about the Camp Host Program, please email Janette Kunkel at janette@westwind.org and put “Camp Host” in the subject line.
