Summer Camp for kids affected by HIV/AIDS!

May 17th, 2016

Location: 75 S Grand Ave Pasadena CA 91105
Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : May 17, 2016
Last Day: Aug 24, 2016

The Laurel Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children, youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who want to make a difference. If you love to help others, make life-long friendships, and expand your horizons, then volunteer at Camp Laurel!!

Through the support of our volunteers, Camp Laurel transports children affected by HIV/AIDS to a safe and fun environment where they are free to just be themselves. Our programs enable these at-risk youth to experience the magic and wonders of childhood free from the stresses of their daily lives.

Volunteers at Camp Laurel act as mentors, activity facilitators, and cabin counselors. Volunteers will get the opportunity to work directly with the kids at camp and get to participate in a variety of traditional camp activities (archery, arts & crafts, campfires, yoga, rock climbing, etc.). Camp counselors will also get the opportunity to introduce our campers (many of whom have never been out of the city) to the natural beauty of the California mountains through outdoor education programming.

Volunteering with Camp Laurel 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/or HIV/AIDS is helpful but is not necessary.


“Every time I come to camp I learn a new life lesson, and that life lesson is always taught to me through the heart of a camper. I have never had any experience that comes close to what I experience every time I come to camp. It’s amazing and life changing and I always come away with more than I could ever give.” – Jody (7 camps)
