Get Involved!

Are you a student interested in getting involved in the professional camping world? Or maybe you’re a conference vet looking to take your OCA Conference experience to the next level? Volunteer at OCA Connects!

Students and Prospective Camp Pros 

We are looking for a team of dynamic individuals to support all aspects of the Conference – from introducing speakers, setting up the Exhibit Hall to selling raffle tickets for our awesome prize draws.

Please complete the Application Form below by November 30th. Successful candidates will be contacted for a phone chat by December 14th. Preference will be given to volunteers who are available from the evening of January 22nd-end of day on January 25th.

Conference Attendees

Can you spare a bit of time during the conference to help out? We are looking for camp pros to host tables and mixers for new delegates at the conference, room hosts, and folks just willing to jump in and help out where needed. It is a great way to get a taste of what being on the Conference Committee is all about, as well as making OCA Connects the community-focused event we are hoping for.

We are looking for volunteers that are young and young at heart – all you need is a friendly face and a love of talking about all things camp! Attendees looking to help should email our Volunteer Coordinator and Host Committee Co-Chairs Lauren Weinberg at and Erin Sunstrum at for more information.
