Throughout each year, Camp Allendale utilizes over 1000 volunteers in a variety of ways to accomplish our mission of “Engaging People to the Living God.” Please consider using your talents and interests through the ministry of Christian Camping. Below are areas of special need. If you have an expertise that you think might benefit our ministry, contact the camp office (317) 878-4400 or email

Spring Serve Days and Facility Volunteers

Allendale consists of 200 acres, 38 buildings, 10 shelters and over 2 miles of trails. They all need maintenance and upkeep. One of our core values is to provide a Safe, Interactive and Fun environment. To ensure that the camp is ready for the influx of kids each summer, we need a lot of help! We schedule volunteer Serve Days in the late Spring. Typically, they are the last two Saturdays in April and the first two Saturdays in May.
We also utilize volunteers on a year-round basis. Projects include mowing, tree removal, grounds clean-up, building repairs and upkeep, and a whole lot more. Our regular volunteers understand the value they are adding to the camp’s ministry. That value impacts the lives of countless kids in Allendale’s ministry. 
If you would like information on our facility volunteer needs, contact the camp office by phone (317-878-4400) or Mike at

Sunday Check-in Volunteers

Opening day of camp is an exciting time! We need assistance during our check-in process to take temperatures, answer basic questions, direct traffic, and welcome each camper with a big smile. Volunteers are needed from 3:45PM to 6:00PM on most Sundays in June and July. Click on our SIGN UP page to reserve your spot!

Kitchen Assistants

Kitchen Volunteers help with general food prep duties, dining hall set up, washing dishes, and serving meals. Kitchen assistants are extremely helpful to us in the summer months. There is a morning shift (9:30AM - 1:30PM) and an afternoon shift (2:30PM-6:30PM). You choose the day and the time frame. For more information about helping in the kitchen contact the camp office by phone (317-878-4400) or go to our SIGN UP page.

Summer Camp Volunteers

During the typical summer, we need over 600 volunteers to provide cabin supervision, be small group leaders, and serve as mentors to kids ranging in age from 1st through 12th grades. All of our faculty volunteers are required to submit to a criminal background check, adhere to the camp's Statement of Faith and Practice, and agree to follow the camp's Code of Conduct and Faculty Guidelines. Those interested in serving as volunteer faculty should contact the camp office at (317) 878-4400 or email about sessions that need volunteer assistance.
