Teens accepted into the program must volunteer for at least two (but not more than four) weeks. Hours of volunteering each week of camp: Nature Day Camp—8:45am-3:45pm; Rockin Robins Preschool 8:45am-1:45pm. All teens who apply must possess enthusiasm about nature, patience with children, and the openness to learn new skills. The $25 per week fee helps cover the cost of the training days and weekly supervision. TEENS WILL NOT BE TURNED AWAY BECAUSE OF INABILITY TO PAY.

Annually, Portlanders volunteer over 450,000 hours with us to help make our parks great! Volunteer coaches, teacher aides, and mentors are always needed in our youth programs- and the parks, gardens, and natural areas welcome extra hands. Ongoing and one-day projects are available and no experience is necessary! Contact Steve Pixley at steve.pixley@portlandoregon.gov for more information.
