Camp Super Hero

Discover your inner superhero at this action-packed summer camp open to kids and teens grades 5-12.

What’s Your Super Power?

Camp Super Hero teaches you just how easy it is to make a BIG difference in the world. Join us this summer to tackle a brand new volunteer project each week. Get your hands dirty planting trees at a nature conservancy or play carnival games with seniors at a nursing home…you’ll never know what adventure the day will bring!

Camp Super Hero is dedicated to R. Douglas Ziegler, who grew up volunteering right here in Washington County. He lived his life as a true super hero, never backing down from an opportunity to help make our community a better place!

Small Capes. Big Impact.

 We started Camp Super Hero in 2014 with one goal in mind — get more kids volunteering!
We know that when people start volunteering at a young age, they are more likely to volunteer as adults.
They make new friends, discover new interests, and are invested in their communities for a lifetime.

Since inception, Camp Super Hero has engaged 213 students in service.
Together they’ve provided 5,472 volunteer hours to 44 for-purpose agencies.

Collectively, they’ve provided $130,381 of service to Washington County.

Definitely Super Heroes in our Book.

Camp Super Hero is a tribute to Doug Ziegler.
Additional thanks to Thrivent Financial – Andrew Mortenson for believing that you’re never too young to make a difference. Camp Super Hero would not be possible without your support.
