Family Camp Volunteers

In the spring and in the fall, Okizu offers nine weekend-long Family Camps. Family Camp is a time where patients, their siblings, and their parents can enjoy a relaxing weekend away from home stresses and hospitals. It is a chance for folks to spend time together as a family, and also an opportunity for them to get to know other families dealing with childhood cancer.

Family Camp volunteers spend a weekend at camp helping to provide these respite and peer support opportunities. Volunteers are responsible for watching a group of campers in the mornings, helping with camp activities in the afternoons, and hanging out with campers and families in the evenings.

Volunteering at a Family Camp is a great idea for people who don’t have the time to volunteer for a week, but could spend a weekend up at camp. It’s also a great way for people who are new to Okizu to get to know our program, our site, other volunteers, and the kids and families we serve. Family Camp volunteers are needed from Friday evening until Sunday at 7:00 pm (with the exception of the holiday weekends, where volunteers are needed until Monday at noon).
