Camp at Home: Volunteers
Each season brings new opportunities for us to connect as a Camp community and The Painted Turtle is pleased to share a variety of Fall programs that will need fantastic volunteers!
The Painted Turtle continues to follow the recommendations of the CDC, State of California, and LA County Public Health Department to keep informed on COVID-19 progress and guide decisions on camp programming. With safety as the top priority, we will follow this guidance closely.

Camp at Home Family Day and Holiday Gathering
We are continuing to run some virtual Camp at Home programming for families near and far, where they can participate in activities and fun from home! These one-day virtual volunteer opportunities will need volunteers to run some virtual crafts and games and lead smaller family cabin groups. Our Family Day will serve a specific diagnosis group, while the Holiday Gathering will be a large celebration of the end of the year, open to our full camper family community.
- Camp at Home Family Day: Saturday, October 9
- Camp at Home: Holiday Gathering: Saturday, December 4th
