The Painted Turtle is a place where children with serious medical conditions can celebrate just being kids! Our nonprofit Organization offers children with serious medical conditions and their families a unique camp experience designed to foster personal growth and exploration. Our goal is to empower campers—to make new friends, try new things, build self-confidence, and become more independent in their medical care. In short, we aspire to help our campers discover all that is possible in their lives.
r There is no billing department at The Painted Turtle—campers and their families attend free of charge. And there’s no limit to the amount of laughter campers take home with them either!
r The Painted Turtle relies on the generosity of hundreds of volunteers every year to accomplish our mission. Each year, more than 500 volunteers donate an impressive 30,000 hours to make the magic of The Painted Turtle a reality. When you volunteer with us, you become a part of The Painted Turtle family: a caring, supportive, and compassionate community that comes together to make a difference in the lives of our deserving campers.
r Beyond the laughter and play volunteers bring to camp, the impact they make on our campers and families lasts long after they leave the gates of The Painted Turtle. Our volunteers often comment that camp deeply touches their own lives as well.
r If you are interested in volunteering at The Painted Turtle, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
We are looking for volunteers for Fall/Spring Family weekends, Outpost hospital visits, and summer week-long volunteers!
