Individuals who are not able to stay at the campsite overnight, but can travel to the site to participate on certain, specified days can participate in projects, help with activities, and interact with our participants. Depending on the background and experience, these adult volunteers can also assist with the medical staff, kitchen staff, custodial staff, photographers, or they might help with special events.
Groups can make a lasting impression on our participants as well as the community! Our volunteer opportunities are an excellent way for local organizations, corporations, and businesses to enable their staff to get involved in the community and share their time, energy, and talents to help Camp PARC provide activities that nurture the social, cultural, recreational, environmental, and spiritual well-being of our participants.
This experience is a fantastic way to not only make a direct impact in the lives of individuals with special needs, but also participate in a great team-building exercise. Volunteering at Camp PARC creates an atmosphere of camaraderie as you interact with our participants and work on projects and activities that help us maintain our exceptional programs.
Group opportunities include, but are not limited to:
Waitstaff: assist in the set-up, preparation, serving, and clean up of a special theme dinner at each of the camping sessions.
