Family Camp Work Crew

Thank you for your interest in joining the work crew for Family Camp!

Work crew is a significant time commitment (4-5 hours) each day of camp, and may include the following shifts:

  • Dishes (1-1.5 hours after each meal). This requires using an industrial dish machine (must be high school or older) and rinsing, washing, air drying, and putting away clean dishes
  • Meal service (1 hour before each meal + 1-1.5 hours after each meal)
  • Prep buffet lines: Assist Kitchen Crew with preparing meal buffet tables with appropriate chafing dishes, serving utensils, condiments.
  • Bus tables post meals: breakdown dining tables, take dirty dishes to dishroom, clean and sanitize tables, sweep dining room floors.


  • Free room and board for all nights (Thursday, Friday & Saturday)
  • No cost registration

Please indicate your interest below and if selected for work crew, we'll be in touch. Note: as with all campers, work crew volunteers must agree to PKU Family Camp's Covid-19 policy.

Cell phone preferred
Consent that I've downloaded and read our COVID-19 Policy The CDC defines vaccination statuses as fully vaccinated (a person has received their primary series of COVID-19 vaccines) and up to date (a person has received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible). All eligible campers will be required to be fully vaccinated and up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations per these definitions. Vaccinations must be completed by May 19th, 2022, which is 2 weeks prior to the first day of camp. This is due to the 2-week time requirement for the vaccination to take full effect in building immunity against COVID-19. Past COVID infection does not replace the COVID vaccine requirement to attend camp. You will be required to provide proof of vaccination status for all eligible members of your party in the vaccination portal. Family Camp will require the use of masks indoors during camp. While we recognize the state of Oregon is planning to lift indoor-masking requirements in March, the pandemic climate is too variable with the development of novel variants for us to be comfortable lifting this requirement for our metabolic community. Vaccinations are effective at lowering your chance of acquiring COVID infection. However it is not fully effective, especially with novel variants that have developed mutations in the spike protein that was used to develop these vaccines. To ensure the lowest risk possible, we strongly encourage all campers to get a PCR COVID test within one week prior to the start of camp (anytime after May 26th). This is not a requirement to attend camp, but it is highly encouraged. If you or a member of your group develop symptoms of COVID infection at camp, we will have antigen tests available to determine whether the causal agent is COVID. If you or a member of your group tests positive for COVID during camp, you will have two options available to you and your group: 1) we will provide quarantine quarters on the other side of camp and have food delivered to you and your party until the end of camp, or 2) you may choose to leave early with a partial refund. For those who can’t come: we want you to be involved in future years, and we hope that the virtual option is a good fit for you this year. See you at camp!(Required)
