About

Montgomery Parks offer many wonderful camps throughout the year for children in Montgomery County and beyond. While Park staff and volunteers help run these camps, we also provide support services to individuals with disabilities to encourage their participation in the activities of their choice.

Program Access Camp Volunteers help us meet this need by modifying activities for individuals with various disabilities (i.e., ADD/ADHD, Autism, Developmental and/or Cognitive delays, Physical and other) and facilitating positive social interactions with others.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help us out this summer with our Nature Camps and Sports camps that run from June through August. These camps are one week long, for 8 hours a day. Volunteers must commit to working at least 2 of these week long camps this summer.

Program Access Camp Counselors will be thoroughly trained, and placed in the camps where and when they are needed. Schedules will be worked out with the supervisor in advance.

We are looking for volunteers that enjoy working with children, that want to help them have fun, and enjoy working outdoors in one of our parks! We also only want volunteers that are willing and able to actively participate alongside campers.
