Adam's Camp Volunteer

Therapy Camp is for younger campers, age 3-8. These campers are put on teams of 5 campers, 5 therapists (SLP, physical therapy, occupational therapy, music therapy, and art therapy) and 2 volunteers. The campers receive intensive therapy during the day both in a clinical-type setting as well as out in the mountains doing fun activities. Each day after the campers are picked up (their families stay on site all week and we have other programs for the families) the team of therapists and volunteers stay together and discuss each camper and the various goals and how to continue to make improvements. It’s a really cool experience especially for people getting into the field because you are able to observe and witness multi-disciplinary teams at work. As a volunteer, your job is to document and put together a PowerPoint that we give to the families at the end of the week, so some basic technological skills are required, like taking photos, uploading them, transferring files, and working with PowerPoint. While your main job isn’t to be working directly with the campers, it is still an amazing opportunity to work closely with the therapists, see what they do, and network with professionals. 

Adventure Camp is for our older campers (13 to adulthood). This is a sleep-away camp where teams are typically split up into groups of 3 counselors, 15 campers, and 6 volunteers. During the week, they participate in a variety of different activities such as zip-lining, rafting, hiking, sailing, etc. As a volunteer, your job is to be friends with the campers, help them get ready for the day, encourage them to participate in the activities, keep the cabins clean, and do whatever your counselors ask of you to help make the week go by smoothly. This program is a lot of fun and you can learn a lot about working with individuals with special needs.
