Onsite Residential Opportunities

Spring Weekend Programs

Family Pals

Our Family Weekends offer our campers an opportunity to bring their siblings, parents, and caregivers to Camp. Together, they get a chance to bond, unwind, and experience all that Camp has to offer. As a Volunteer Family Pal, you are assigned to a family for the weekend and able to share in the experience. Alongside our amazing crew of returning volunteers, you will work to get to know your family, show them around Camp, and to see that their weekend is as fun and fulfilling as possible. New volunteers - Click here to apply on our portal (click not a member to start, then go to apply as new)We will begin processing applications and contacting applicants for interviews in early December.  Returning volunteers -  Check back in early January to register. 

Medical Team

Medical Volunteers work alongside our Medical Staff to provide routine and acute care to our campers. We need licensed physicians, nurses, and nurse practitioners, both specialists and general medicine practitioners who can share their medical/clinical expertise with us to create a safe and fun environment.  Pediatric experience is preferred. We guarantee this will be a life-changing experience, just as it is for the children who attend Camp. New volunteers - Click here to apply on our portal (click not a member to start, then go to apply as new) Returning volunteers -  Click here to register on our new portal.
