Summer Camp Volunteers
Summer Camp is a series of 6-day/5-night summer sessions for children and adults with medical conditions or disabilities. CAMP recruits volunteers to assist with all summer sessions. Each session runs Sunday – Friday and overnight stay is required. This program is located at our Camp CAMP facility in Center Point, Texas, and volunteers are responsible for their own transportation.
Volunteers spend their week with a camper, helping them with personal care needs, and assisting them with activities such as horseback riding, swimming, canoeing, arts & crafts, outdoor cooking, archery, sports & recreation, nature, night activities, and much more! The most rewarding experience at CAMP will be the friendships formed with fellow counselors and campers.
CAMP provides a thorough orientation and continuous training for this program. CAMP’s training teaches volunteers how to work with individuals who have medical conditions or disabilities - including child development, hygiene and personal care, behavior management, medical diagnoses, and CAMP policies and procedures. Training is mandatory for all new and returning volunteers and is a critical piece of our volunteer program. Volunteering at Camp CAMP requires successful completion of training, as determined by CAMP Leadership Staff. As such, Volunteer Counselors are initially accepted for training, and provisionally accepted for volunteering for their assigned session(s). Volunteers can earn up to 99 service hours per successfully completed session.
Please Note: Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age at the time they are volunteering. For individuals who are age 14, please click the Leader In Training program to learn more.
