Volunteer Application Instructions

  • Application Instructions for volunteering at a Summit or Retreat

    Volunteers at youth activities could find themselves assisting with registration, setting up snacks, refreshing craft supplies, or even leading an activity about a topic of their interest at a youth event. A highlight for many volunteers is volunteering at a GA 4-H military camp. Military camps are often referred to as a retreat (3-day) or summit (4 days or more). Summits and retreats are for military-dependent youth to come together for respite, learning, and fun with other military youth. Ages and service branches are dependent on grants and contracts. For summits and retreats, interested adults (ages 21+) should complete the following 4-H Volunteer Agreement with a wet or digital signature. Forms can be submitted with Adobe Reader/PDF Reader, or scanned & emailed to milcamps@uga.edu, All adult leaders will be subject to a background check.
