Available roles:

Camp Counselor: Provide camper-focused care and support by building camper relationships, providing camper supervision, ensuring health, safety and well-being. Help facilitate camp activities including arts & crafts, field games, campfires and more.

Camp Buddy: Buddies are paired with a camper who may require additional support and attention throughout their camp experience. They may require support for behavioral concerns and/or some limited mobility assistance. This could include supports such as help integrating into the group, providing additional time transitioning between activities, or guided walks between locations at camp.

One-to-one Aids: Minimum qualifications for one-to-one aids include nursing student, health care aid, nurse, students, or professionals certified in rehabilitation (other areas of specialty may be considered). One-to-one aids are paired with a camper who requires dedicated attention and support at all times. They may require support for personal care (eating, toileting, showering, etc,), for mobility and balance concerns, and behavioral concerns (running away or emotional outburst).

Floater: Floaters' roles vary greatly as they provide support where most needed. They are not assigned to a particular group but take initiative to assist groups where extra hands would be helpful. However, if there is a volunteer cancellation (due to illness or last-minute personal emergency), floaters may be assigned to a specific camp group to cover that position.
