Comfort Zone Camp

January 25th, 2014

Location: 20695 South Western Street, Suite 145 Torrance CA 90501
Duration: Ongoing
First Day : Jan 25, 2014

Comfort Zone provides grieving children with a voice, a place and a community in which to heal, grow and lead more fulfilling lives. We need approximately 85-90 volunteers each Comfort Zone Camp weekend.
r *About Comfort Zone Camp:
r Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit 501(c)3 bereavement camp that transforms the lives of children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or primary caregiver. The free camps include confidence building programs and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings. Comfort Zone Camps are offered to children 7-17, and are held year-round across the Country. We have offices in California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Virginia.
r *Volunteer Roles:
r Volunteers are the life blood of Comfort Zone Camp – our camps could not happen without a large community of volunteers. And, as each year our services grow, so does our need for volunteers at camp, and outside of camp.
r We do not exclude staff or volunteers with disabilities. However, because the role of a volunteer can sometimes be emotionally and physically strenuous, we expect that any person volunteering at Comfort Zone will have the ability to supervise and provide safety for our campers.
r A wide range of volunteer opportunities exist at Comfort Zone, including:
r Office internships
r Outreach and event support
r Pre-camp program support
r Camp weekend support
r Big Buddy (mentor) roles
r Healing Circle Leader (therapist) roles (Trained professionals only)
r Healing Circle Assistants
r We require that all volunteers attend a six-hour training prior to volunteering to gain a better understanding of childhood bereavement and volunteer expectations.
r For camp weekends, volunteers need to be available from 2:30 p.m. on Friday to 4 p.m. on Sunday, unless they are assigned a Floater role.
