Summer Volunteering Ideas

Give back to your community and enjoy your time outside when the sun is shining and weather is nice. Volunteering during the summer is a great way to introduce philanthropy to your kids and get the whole family involved. With minimal effort, you can improve your community, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy nature. Here are three summer volunteering ideas:

Camp counselor—Join in the fun with your kids and participate in summer camp. Many summer camps are always looking for volunteers and counselors. It’s a great way to enjoy the outdoors and give back. Volunteer at your kids’ camp or help out with a different one.

Park cleanup—If you enjoy your time at the park, then give back by participating in a monthly cleanup of community parks. Contact your local parks and recreation organizations to plan a group cleanup.

Marathon fundraisers—Support your favorite organizations by organizing marathon fundraisers in the summer. Invite your friends and family to participate and enjoy the lovely weather while giving back.
