Children's Cancer Camp Volunteer: July Session 2022

Friday, July 15th from 3:00pm to Saturday, July 23rd, 2022 2:00pm (PT)

About

About Us: The Goodtimes Project is a Seattle-based nonprofit whose mission is to create caring spaces for local families impacted by a childhood cancer diagnosis to connect and for kids to be kids, through camps, events, and programs. We serve families throughout Western Washington and Alaska with a goal of providing cost-free programming to help kids reconnect with a world beyond their diagnosis.

Opportunity Description: Are you prepared for the time of your life? Donate your time and your laughter and make camp all it can be. We're looking for individuals who are friendly, trustworthy, dedicated, and caring to donate 9 days of their time to be on staff at Camp Goodtimes, a no-cost camp for kids impacted by childhood cancer. What you get in return is priceless. We take the job of caring for medically and emotionally fragile campers seriously, but we smile, laugh, and learn every day. Each camp session, we need ~70 individuals to join us in making it a week to remember for approximately 110 campers. Are you one of them?

Requirements: Looking for compassionate, responsible, trustworthy, empathetic, and joyful people age 18+. No experience working with kids with cancer needed (we have an onsite medical staff for all health concerns), but the ability to put campers' needs first and the desire to make it a week to remember are required. Job positions include cabin counselor, cabin support staff, activities staff, arts and crafts, and muscle staff (logistics). Volunteers are expected to be at camp for the entire nine days of the session.

Days/Times: July 15-23, 2022

Location: Vashon Island, WA (Camp Goodtimes uses the facilities of Camp Burton on Vashon)
