Camp Laurel is located in beautiful Big Bear, California. Our programs enable children living with HIV/AIDS to experience the magic and wonders of childhood free from the stresses of their daily lives. Through love, compassion and hope, Camp Laurel teaches children to understand that each one of them has the ability to make his or her life as full and rich as the next child’s regardless of this illness.
Serving as a Camp Laurel Camp Counselor is a rewarding and challenging experience, one that many volunteers return to year after year. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, be comfortable working with adults and children with HIV/AIDS, have good judgment and lots of energy. Experience with resident camps and HIV/AIDS is helpful but is not necessary.
Camp will be held from September 11-15. A mandatory training will take place the weekend of August 29-30. Interested parties can find our application on our website (http://www.laurel-foundation.org). Applicants must be 18 years old with a high school diploma/GED, be a U.S. citizen or legal resident for at least 10 years, provide three professional references, and pass a background check.
