Camp Support (2-3 positions)
The Camp Support volunteer will be a "floater" in the camp, in which they help groups that require additional support as well as set-up for the next activity.

"Cristel has put a lot of thought into the structure of the camp and everything is written out in a timeline. Each day after the camp, we would meet up and have a quick debrief to talk about the PROS and CONS so we know how to improve for the next day.
Angelina - NutriFoodie Volunteer, From Ground to Table camp (2014)
"I had the opportunity to contribute to creating a positive environment while sharing my passion for nutrition. I was able to work closely with students in small groups to familiarize them with the basics of cooking and ultimately help them cultivate a greater appreciation for food. Volunteering for the camp gave me the chance to improve my teaching and communication skills, both of which are equally important because the students come from varying backgrounds, have different skill sets and perceptions towards food and nutrition."
