2022 Summer Camp Volunteer Staff
Sunrise Day Camp, a camp for children with cancer and their siblings, is looking for Day Camp Volunteers for its summer 2022 season from June 29 to August 19. Day Camp Volunteers uphold the values and guidelines of the camp community, are attentive to children's individual needs and concerns, and demonstrate a willingness to go the extra mile. Because Sunrise campers may have greater emotional and physical needs, this experience is both demanding and rewarding.
Day Camp Volunteers must be 16 years old and commit to a minimum of four or more consecutive weeks at camp. This allows volunteers to become a vital part of the camp community and for the campers to have a sense of continuity as well as time to develop a trusting and supportive relationship with them.
All potential Day Camp Volunteers will be contacted based on available positions and consideration of individual skills, background, and dates available to work. Orientations are held at the campgrounds or on Zoom prior to the summer season.
Sunrise Day Camp is the only dedicated full-summer day camp in the world for children with cancer and their siblings. The camp is designed to meet the emotional, social, recreational, and physical needs of these children. Sunrise Day Camps bring the simple pleasures of childhood back to children struggling with cancer, bringing them summers filled with sunshine, laughter and happiness. And because Sunrise is a day camp, it allows the children to continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night.
