Creating safe and fun experiences for children who've experienced abuse, abandonment and neglect.

About

The non-profit organization Kids-Net LA is seeking volunteers for its 18th annual sleep-away summer camp for children in the LA County foster & dependency care system.

We're looking for professionals who want to serve. This is an incredibly rewarding opportunity to foster healthy and loving relationships with children too used to abuse, abandonment and neglect.

Our summer camp is created and powered by a wholly-volunteer group of professionals from across the southland. This year our camp is up in Redlands for a week in June. Right now we're looking for new summer camp volunteers who feel called to our mission. We are trying to identify a professional, certified nurse (or nurses) to staff our First Aid room, a behavioral therapist or professional counselor, an arts & crafts enthusiast, and YOUR unique combination of talent & passion.

Please visit our website at www.kidsnetla.org for more information on our mission!


Please note: we cannot list many camp details online due to the sensitive nature of our mission. Potential volunteers will be briefed in person after inquiry/background checks.
