The ELM Project is enhancing the lives of youth living with the challenges of HIV/ AIDS and Sickle Cell Disease by providing an enriching summer camp experience, year-round skill building, and a supported transition to adulthood.
Camp AmeriKids, a residential summer camp for children living with the challenges of HIV/AIDS and sickle cell disease, is looking for caring, responsible, energetic and fun counselors for our 2018 season. A volunteer counselor team is responsible for the 24-hour supervision of a cabin and maintains a camper to counselor ratio of about 2 to1. Counselors spend each day of camp with their cabin group as they rotate through a schedule of activities and participate in new and exciting workshops provided by the program staff. The cabin counselor's enthusiastic participation in all aspects of camp, from meals and activities to nightly special events and cabin chats, is crucial in creating a memorable camp experience for our campers. Counselors are expected to be role models, sources of energy and ideas, and are a key part of the Camp AmeriKids community. Room & board at our site in Warwick, NY is provided. Volunteers can apply for our 2018 camp session that will be held from August 4th – August 11th. Applications are available on our website www.elm-project.org. Please contact us at 203-658-9671 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in more information.
