With our new location our need for counselors in particular has increased dramatically. Our new site has cabins which have 9 beds. We are required to have 2 adults per cabin. This means we need 2 counselors in a cabin to be able to have 7 campers. To use all the cabins we have at our disposal would require 24 counselors who can be counselors for the entire time of camp


The process to apply is 2 steps.

1. You need to complete the online application for volunteers/counselors (see https://dowoca.org/ steugenescamp.html)

2. You need to submit a Background Check Submission Form via a link also on https://dowoca.org/ steugenescamp.html.

A big thank you to the folks who have done one or both of those already! If you have done one step but not the other, please try to get it all done this weekend if possible.


Based upon the submissions we have received so far we can currently have just 3 girl cabins and 4 boy cabins. That’s only 21 girls and 28 boys.

We would REALLY like to increase that number! 


Please consider being a camp counselor and/or talking to people who you think would be a good fit for camp to be a counselor.

We also are looking for certified medical people. 

Also, we will have volunteers and counselors arriving on Saturday by 11:30am if at all possible. We will be having a training as well as a bit of a “work” day at a Airbnb that we have rented in Oakhurst. 

PLEASE E-MAIL Fr. Michael Anderson at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. AND CONFIRM THAT YOU CAN PARTICIPATE IN THIS TRAINING.

For information on what these people do, please see the list of “Job Desciptions” on https://dowoca.org/ steugenescamp.html


It is looking to a wonderful camp this year! Please help make it possible for as many kids as possible to participate!

In Christ,
Fr. Michael Anderson
