Summer Volunteer Opportunity for Students: Camp AmeriKids

Camp AmeriKids is currently recruiting volunteers to staff our residential summer camp and I am wondering if there is a way I could post this opportunity for your students.  More information on our program and the application process can be found at:

Here is a link to the online application form: I have also attached a flyer that can be printed and posted or circulated electronically.

Below is a more detailed description of the volunteer opportunity:

Camp AmeriKids, a summer camp for children living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS and sickle cell disease, is looking for caring, responsible, energetic and fun counselors for our 2017 season. A volunteer counselor team is responsible for the 24-hour supervision of a cabin and maintains a camper to counselor ratio of about 2 to1. Counselors spend each day of camp with their cabin group as they rotate through a schedule of activities and participate in new and exciting workshops provided by the program staff. The cabin counselor’s enthusiastic participation in all aspects of camp, from meals and activities to nightly special events and cabin chats, is crucial in creating a memorable camp experience for our campers. Counselors are expected to be role models, sources of energy and ideas, and are a key part of the Camp AmeriKids community. Room & board at our site in Warwick, NY is provided. Volunteers can apply for our 2017 camp session that will be held from August 5th – August 12th. Applications are available on our website Please contact us at 203-658-9671 or if you are interested in more information.

It truly is a remarkable place and an incredible opportunity – for the children who attend and the adults who volunteer.  So many of our volunteers remain in touch with us and it’s inspiring how many have chosen professions in public service (whether medicine, social work, teaching, non-profit or child advocacy law) as a direct effect of their time at camp.  Each Fall we receive countless emails from people saying that Camp AmeriKids changed their life.
