  • Please know that children under the age of 18 might not be invited to be a volunteer. If the child has experienced a loss within the last year it may be more helpful for the child to register as a camper. Any child under the age of 18 who would like to volunteer should contact Katie at (865) 374-0864 or katerpillarkids@covhlth.com
  • Please read all the options in the Position Descriptions link in the sidebar of this page. The answer to this question will help camp staff place volunteers with the appropriate group/activity. Make sure you read the requirements for each position.
  • If you would like to be a Organizational Group Leader you must have previous camp experience.
  • If applying to be a Clinical Group Leader please list all credentials.
  • We encourage our volunteers to have a clear mind when talking to children that are grieving. If you feel as though a loss that you had within the past year will inhibit your ability to help others, please apply in the future. If you have questions or would like to discuss your loss to make sure you would be a good fit for Katerpillar Kids Camp, please call (865) 374-0864 or email us at katerpillarkids@covhlth.com.
  • Training is MANDATORY! If you are unable to attend the training date, please do not apply to be a volunteer. If you do not make it to the training you will not be able to attend Katerpillar Kids Camp as a volunteer. If you have questions about this date or about training, please call 865-374-0864.
  • Camp runs from 7:30 am to 6:30 pm on Saturday, and 7:30 am to 4:30 pm on Sunday.
  • Katerpillar Kids Camp provides bus Transportation from West Knoxville (Fort Sanders West) to Wesley Woods in Townsend. Also parking at Wesley Woods is very minimal. We have enough space for campers and volunteers. We will need most volunteers to ride the bus. Not only for safety but also because this is a GREAT way to get to know the campers in your group as well as the other volunteers.
