Description: We are looking for responsible, fun loving, energetic individuals to volunteer at our 2022 summer Youth Education & Summer Socialization (YESS) program. YESS is a one of kind experience for youth with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities and volunteers are what make it successful. Some of the benefits of volunteering at YESS Camp include:

Personal growth & development, leadership skills and maturity
All activities, events and meals at no cost to the volunteer
“Volunteer to Work” training opportunity to develop skills employers will love
Lifelong friendships with fellow volunteers, staff & campers
Having tons of fun!!!
YESS Camp is a 8 week program that runs from 6-6-22 through 7-28-22. It is Monday-Friday from 8am – 4:30pm. Volunteers are needed daily and may sign up to help one week or all 8 weeks. We do ask that volunteers commit to one full week at a time, if at all possible.

A typical day for volunteers at YESS Camp looks like this:

8:00am-11:15am – Assisting students in a classroom setting with education activities. All activities will surround the weekly theme with an all-school assembly every Thursday morning to make class presentations and PARTY!!

11:15am-Noon – Lunch with campers and transition to afternoon groups

Noon-4:00pm – Participating in ALL activities with campers (swimming, games, parks & more) throughout the community. Groups usually go 3-5 different places and end their day at AbilityPoint.

4:00-4:30pm – Volunteers help with campers being released for the day.
