Listen closely and you’ll hear the squeal of children laughing and the snap of campfire crackling. Summer camp offers kids with cancer a chance to escape the rigors and isolation of cancer treatments for a week of outdoor adventure. Be the volunteer behind the laughter.
We are in high demand for more one-to-one volunteers to help campers with specific needs this summer. We need your help to make sure every camper gets the opportunity to have a camp experience. Contact Kelly if you can help out.
- SunRise (ages 3 to 7): A day camp with field trips, arts and crafts, along with visits from clowns, naturalists, EMS workers and other exciting guests!
- SunHaven/SunMaker (ages 7 to 17): A five-day overnight camp adventure for children affected by childhood cancer or have a parent with cancer. Campers get to spend time outdoors, make new friends and take on new challenges— high ropes, zip line, climbing, rafting, swimming and more!
- SunSeeker (ages 15 to 17): A five-day or 10-day overnight adventure based camp. Activities include mountain biking, hiking, white water rafting, caving, horseback riding, canoeing, and over-night trips.
Please note, that camp volunteer positions fill up quickly and require a week-long commitment and a mandatory weekend training course.
As you can imagine, there are a variety of roles that need to be filled for summer camp. Here’s just a few:
- Camp Counsellor
- One-to-one aid
- Junior Counsellor (SunRise only)
- Clinic Support
- Kitchen Volunteer
