Healthcare Workers Make a Difference as Summer Camp Volunteers

Linda Childers, Monster Contributing Writer

Where to Volunteer

To find camp volunteer opportunities, contact:

  • American Camp Association: The Special Needs section lists camps needing medical volunteers.
  • Lists summer camps for children, including medically supervised camps.
  • American Lung Association: Sponsors asthma camps nationwide.
  • The Muscular Dystrophy Association: Sponsors summer camps for children and teens with neuromuscular diseases.

Most organizations accept applications year-round until the camp begins. There is no fee to volunteer, and camps provide orientation, training, food, lodging and medical supplies.
