When is summer camp? What activities do you have?
Camp typically begins in early June and runs through the end of July. Each week brings in a new group of campers for residential or day camp. Summer Camp activities include canoeing, fishing, arts and crafts, swimming, hiking, camping, and field games. While all the activities are fun for the children, they also provide the opportunity to learn important life skills such as leadership, safety, team building, self-esteem, and respect for others.
How long is the commitment? When should I apply?
Medical personnel may serve for one week or longer and we ask that our other volunteers make a minimum commitment of three weeks.
Who qualifies to serve as medical personnel?
We need RNs and LPNs who are licensed in Kentucky or in a state participating in the Nurse Licensure Compact. We also welcome EMTs.
Do you offer any financial support for volunteers?
Yes! We provide travel assistance of up to $400. Individuals making a commitment of six weeks or longer are eligible for a bi-weekly AmeriCorps living allowance of $375, as well as an education award for student loans and qualified education expenses.
Where will I stay? What about food?
Volunteers stay in dormitories at camp. Meals are provided when camp is in session, and volunteers have access to the kitchen on weekends.
