Volunteer for ACA, Southwest

The American Camp Association is dedicated to our Mission — to enrich the lives of children, youth and adults through the camp experience. Expansively, we focus on the promotion of human development. While we utilize diverse delivery systems and methods, we have one common foundation...  Volunteers. Individuals who are willing to volunteer their time, expertise, and talents in order to serve others are critical to fulfilling our Mission.  Without the generosity of spirit, time, and resources of these people, we could not achieve our goals to serve and strengthen our communities.  Volunteers help ACA to:

  • Spread our message
  • Expand our reach
  • Ensure program and service sustainability and impact
  • Increase public trust
  • Reduce costs
  • Engage and support those who serve kids and families through camp experiences
  • Mentor and train the next generation of professionals
  • Attract new financial supporters
  • Provide objective feedback on the performance of the association
  • Build capacity
  • Identify societal change and emerging issues — and help the association to adapt appropriately

Volunteering — A Foundation of Human Development

The personal benefits of volunteering go well beyond the emotional boost of “giving back.”  Studies show that people who volunteer their time can also strengthen their physical and mental health. Volunteering has been proven to:

  • develop social and relationship skills
  • increase self-confidence
  • combat depression
  • decrease illness and mortality rates
  • bring fun and fulfillment
  • strengthen families
  • provide career experience
  • renew creativity and motivation
  • teach valuable job skills
