Volunteer at Camp GWC

It takes a village to run such an elaborate event like Camp GWC and we couldn’t do it without some helping hands  !  Each year, Camp GWC needs around 60 volunteers on conference day.  Volunteers help check our participants in, help our presenters with setup, serve lunch, and more!  This is a perfect opportunity for local groups to participate together or individuals looking to help out for a day.  All volunteers receive a certificate of service and a warm THANK YOU for their help!  Learn more about volunteering by downloading our Volunteer Packet (available November 2019).

Exhibit for Camp GWC

Our campers love to shop !  As an exhibitor, you can capture almost two hours of face time with over 300 attendees!  Our audience is 95% women and all work with children!  This is a perfect opportunity for businesses in the following sectors:  toys, children’s activities, education, clothing, accessories, shopping, fitness, etc.  New this year, we have redesigned the exhibitor room, allowing for businesses that want more space to have it!  With new Showcase Spaces you can set up however you wish and make a little store or even a great area for giving massages!  Also new for this year… select your space!  We feel that with these new additions the limited spots will fill up fast so reserve yours early!  Learn more about exhibiting and other advertising opportunities by downloading the Advertiser Packet (available October 2019).  LIMITED SPACES AVAILABLE!
