Volunteer Program
The Community Council for the Arts is a non-profit, 501-(c)3 organization. We are happy to encourage responsible and dedicated youth, ages 15 and older, to assist with our summer camps.

During Summer Camp, volunteers assist Staff with a variety of duties including the daily set up and clean up of camps. For those volunteers seeking service hours for school or civic organizations, participants will receive an official letter validating service hours contributed.

To participate, students must complete an application and meet with Director Sandy Landis prior to the their week of service. Participation in this program is free. Scheduling preference is on a first-come, first-serve basis. As a benefit of membership, scheduling priority will be offered to members of Community Council for the Arts.
