Onsite Residential Opportunities

Spring Weekend Programs

Volunteer 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 - the spring weekend dates have not yet been finalized, but availability can be discussed at a later date - Follow this link to apply. Returning volunteers -  - Check back after January 2nd to register.

Medical Volunteers

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. Check back in January for our Spring Weekend new volunteer application and returning volunteer registration!
