Camps for Kids is looking for volunteers to be cabin counselors this summer!


Camps For Kids is a collection of different summer camps that allow patients with complicated medical diagnosis to attend camp and receive the medical care they need while at camp.

All counselors must be 19 years old and a year past high school graduation.  For all camps being vaccinated is preferred but some camps do not require vaccination.  The camps highlighted in green require counselors to vaccinated.  All counselors must be willing to be tested for COVID 24 hours prior to the beginning of camp.  If you are interested in volunteering at a specific camp, you can reach out directly the camp coordinator of that camp.

One camp that is desperate need is Camp Broncho!
