"We see service as more than long hours, sweat, or sacrifice.
It’s how we show compassion and love."

Camp PARC is a volunteer-powered organization. Without our dedicated and caring volunteers, Camp PARC would cease to exist. 

Our volunteers make a direct impact in our mission of enriching the lives of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our volunteers create an inclusive environment that provides uplifting and memorable experiences for everyone involved. 

Camp PARC offers volunteer opportunities for both individuals and groups, as full-time resident volunteers or one-time event volunteers. 

Applications for resident volunteers at Camp PARC 2023 are open! 


Junior Counselors

Junior counselors are full participants at Camp PARC. Each junior counselor is paired with one or two individuals with special needs to experience a fun-filled week together. Junior Counselors can join us beginning at age 14 and do not need any prior training or experience to join!
