Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our efforts to restore and share the wonders of the Laguna. Thank you!

Camp Tule Counselor-in-Training

Our Counselor-in-Training program is designed for young teens (13 years or older) who are interested in strengthening their leadership skills in a supportive and friendly environment. Alongside our Camp Counselors and Naturalists, CITs help to lead campers in outdoor activites filled with exploration, discovery, creativity, and nature games all designed to connect children to the environment. At 16, Volunteer CITs may then apply to join Camp Tule as staff! More details.
