YMCA Camp Sea Gull and YMCA Camp Seafarer continue to be strong because of the generous support of volunteers. Having parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends who are willing to make Camp better through their skilled contributions is invaluable. Whether you can join us for a day, weekend, or give your time on a committee or board, we hope you will stay involved and will pick an option that best suites you and your family. Thank you to all our volunteers who help make Camp possible every day!

Summer Opportunities at Camp
Dessert Social Volunteer
The night before Camp is usually one of excitement, jitters, and questions. This Saturday event is designed to tap into all of these emotions and get campers and their parents ready for Opening Day. Volunteers can expect to help at the nametag table, mingle with many first-time families, and answer questions. Dessert Socials are held in New Bern and Morehead City, NC.
Contact: Email Brandon Blackman.
Spend Starter Camp week at Camp Seafarer! Help our youngest campers choose activities, become more confident and learn to live in the camp community. You will be assigned to a cabin to guide young campers through the day and live with Mother Ducks each night.
Summer Opportunities in your Area
Ask a Parent
First-time parents often have questions about their child’s experience that can best be answered by another experienced parent. Join our group of Camp parents who help answer questions through email in the weeks leading up to each summer session.
Contact: Email Lydia Warren or call her at (919) 987-8738.
Charter Bus Greeter
Campers can leave and return home via charter bus in certain major Camp markets and cities. We need volunteers to recreate a bit of magic away from Camp for these campers and their families. Volunteers are asked to interact with families and help greet the bus and parents.
