How We Work
- We are outdoor enthusiasts – we believe in the transformative power of nature. We explore the great outdoors as much as possible as individuals, as a team, and for our programs.
- We deeply value mentorship and believe in the impact we can have on youth who are struggling with hopelessness, apathy, technology dependence, and mental health issues.
- We have a casual work environment where we have fun doing what we love! Dress shoes aren’t ideal for hiking, bouldering, or canoeing, so you can trade them in for some hiking boots.
- We have a relational, community-oriented atmosphere where YOU matter. We have each other’s backs and know each other as more than colleagues.
- Teamwork makes the dream work! We are highly communicative problem solvers who get stuff done! We brainstorm, plan, and prepare as openly as possible TOGETHER.
- We are constantly growing! Every time we do something new it’s an opportunity to do it better. If we encourage learning in our students, we have to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.

Donor Relations Specialist
Responsibilities: As Camptown’s Donor Relations Specialist, you help make the fundraising magic happen. Under the supervision of the Development Manager, you will support the stewardship of individual giving by strengthening donor relationships through the implementation of the Development & Marketing Plan. You’ll have your hands in multiple areas: fundraising events, social media, communications, and individual donor relationships. Your LOVE for our mission will help Camptown grow!
Apply if this sounds like you:
- You love forming relationships. Whether that’s with donors, coworkers, or people who love our mission, you can’t wait to bring more people into Camptown’s network.
- You want to create meaningful experiences for others. Working hard to support events and help make the vision all come together makes your heart sing.
- Dialing in on the data excites you. Helping compile donation reports, evaluation statistics, and analyzing donor trends gets your wheels turning.
- You’re ready to shout about Camptown from the mountain tops (or Indiana hills will do). From recruiting volunteers to making in-person donation requests, you’re comfortable putting yourself out there to get the job done.
As a REACH Facilitator, you’ll lead our REACH for Nature after school clubs and teach youth about connecting with nature.

Once a month, you’ll assist the Site Leader on a Saturday day trip, hiking or canoeing in a local or Indiana state park. A commitment to this role can be as few as two afternoons per week or as much as four afternoons per week and includes one Saturday per month.
