"Volunteers gain experience with and an appreciation for people of diverse abilities.”

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community, and the personal rewards and experiences are something you will have for the rest of your life. Volunteers are very special at Camp PARC and we greatly benefit from a volunteer’s time, talents, and generous spirit.

More than 500 volunteers donate countless hours to Camp PARC each year. Without our dedicated and caring volunteers, there would be no Camp PARC. Volunteers make a direct impact in our mission of enriching the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities. We have opportunities for both individuals and groups to volunteer time with Camp PARC.

Full-time volunteers are individuals who serve as senior staff, medical staff, custodial staff, junior counselors, peer buddies, resident staff assistants, and media staff during the week of camp and are required to stay on the campground day and night for the duration of the session. In addition to camp, many of these volunteers help with leading various fundraising activities and planning throughout the year. Applications for resident volunteers at Camp PARC 2019 are available online. To begin the application process, please fill out the online applicationThe online application should be used for all returning staff and new applicants.

Daily Volunteers assist with camp maintenance, support the camp kitchen, assist in arts and crafts, provide support for fundraising events, operate carnival games, and more. We always have volunteer projects that individuals or groups or organizations can do.
