Want to make a difference in the lives of local childhood cancer patients and survivors, and their families? Look no further!
Camp Casco is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to provide sources of lifelong emotional support to local children with cancer and their families. Our capstone program provides a free weeklong sleep-away summer camp to childhood cancer patients and survivors in Massachusetts. Campers enjoy a fun-filled week of traditional summer camp activities at a YMCA campsite in the Berkshires, including canoeing, swimming, archery, and indoor rock climbing. Parents rest easy, knowing that their child is in the capable hands of our experienced camp counselors and a professional medical staff. The entire week of camp is provided free-of-cost, including transportation to and from the campsite. Bonds formed at camp are strengthened through participation in free family socials throughout the year. Our goal is to build supportive relationships that will persist well beyond the week of camp itself.
We provide this much-needed service through the hard work of volunteer committees all year round. Our Family Outreach Committee works to reunite our camp families throughout the year by organizing free family socials, and works to spread awareness of Camp Casco to eligible families throughout the state. We are currently seeking a Regional Coordinator to assist with family social planning and camper recruitment efforts in the western Massachusetts area. While this position is focused on the western Massachusetts area, volunteers located anywhere in Massachusetts are encouraged to apply, as meeting attendance and volunteer work can be done remotely.
Regional Coordinators are supported by the Director of Family Outreach, and meet one to two times per month. Hours are very flexible, and a minimum of 4 hours per week is preferred.
To apply to be a Family Outreach Regional Coordinator , please contact firstname.lastname@example.org . Please describe your interest in volunteering with Camp Casco, specify which committee you are interested in joining, and include information about any relevant qualifications or experiences you may have.
