Who can volunteer with Camp Lilac?

Anyone ages 18 or older can apply to volunteer with Camp Lilac. Experience working with youth and/or the transgender/gender diverse community is recommended but not required. 


If you are (or will be) 18 years old or a current high school senior who will have graduated by the time camp begins, you are eligible to apply for the Staff in Training program, which includes leadership training and guidance for those new to leadership positions, or who are making the transition from camper to staff.


When is camp?

Camp Session 1 (including training) - July 19th through July 27th

Camp Session 2 (including training) - July 26th through August 3rd

Sessions have the same programming, and staff can attend one or both. Partial week opportunities also may be possible. 


Where is camp?

Camp Lilac is held at a campsite in West Central Ohio, located about an hour outside of Columbus. For safety and privacy reasons, the exact location is only shared after a staff member has been accepted to volunteer and completed a background check.

Is there compensation for staff?

Camp Lilac is a volunteer driven organization. All positions, with the exception of kitchen manager, are volunteer. Transportation assistance may be available.
