Volunteer for a week that will change your life
Our largest need is for 1:1 volunteers who are willing to “do life together” with a camper for the week. Volunteers will help with bathing, dressing, transporting or whatever individual need your camper (soon to be best friend) has. Volunteers must be able to lift 50 to 100 pounds. We need at least 40 of these volunteers.
We are also in need of doctors and nurses to serve during the week of camp and care for campers’ medical needs.
Want to help but can’t commit for the week? We have a few opportunities for people to help with our nightly parties. This a great opportunity to serve as a couple or family and help create magic and fun for our campers! Help will be needed for set up, serving at the party, and cleaning up afterward.
All 1:1 volunteers must be at least 16 years old. ALL volunteers must undergo a background check before they arrive at camp.
Why do people choose to volunteer at Camp PossAbility?
New This Year . . .
Volunteers are required to pay $50 at registration. That money will be refunded to you after you have turned in your paperwork on time (application, background check, and reference letters) and served at camp for the entire week. ALL paperwork must be received by July 1, 2017, or your deposit will NOT be returned.
Volunteers are also responsible for running their own background check (cost varies according to state and typically ranges from $15 to $90).
If you have had a background check completed within the last year, you may submit a copy of that one instead but it must have been completed no sooner than August 5, 2016. Background checks are due by July 1, 2017. Failure to complete this in time will result in a loss of your deposit fee.
Your food and lodging will be covered for the week.
Our camp relies on its volunteers and we need and want YOU to be there!
Have questions about volunteering? Please contact Lauren at firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteer applications are due by March 1, 2017 (but will be accepted until all volunteer positions are filled).
Volunteers arrive at camp on July 29, 2017, at 4 p.m. for training, and campers arrive the following day.
Your time at Camp PossAbility will be a treasured memory for years to come!! Don’t miss out!
