Camp Outlook is looking for some people to help run Camp Outlook this summer.

And through our training, volunteers will earn certifications in Wilderness First Aid, Bronze Cross/Medallion, and ORCKA canoeing.

Outlook is as rewarding as it is challenging. You will never forget the summer spent with Outlook, the campers, the staff, or the park.
