Are you passionate about nature connection and love to work with youth? Are you interested in connecting more with our natural world and learn best by doing? Are you able to commit to one of most fun and adventurous weeks possible in Indianapolis? If so, then our Firekeeper Adult Volunteer opportunity is perfect for you.


Maintaining a Wilderness Academy in an urban environment requires Community Support. Parents and friends of White Pine are passionate about the skills taught here. Through our curriculum we guide our children to becoming confident connected adults.


As a Fire Keeper you will be working side by side with a White Pine Lead Instructor. Your task is to provide supervision and a helping hand, but more importantly, you are there TO PLAY! White Pine instructors and volunteers are not afraid to let go and get dirty. The only skill that a volunteer needs is the ability to embody the spirit of excitement and discovery that we kindle in our campers. Are you ready to get dirty? If so, please join us this Summer as a Firekeeper Adult Volunteer.

NOTE: You will be able to indicate which camp schedule you are free to volunteer: 10am – 2pm or 9am – 4pm.

Please consider that it is ideal for a volunteer to commit to a full week. If this is not possible contact us and we can consider other options.
