About

Join our mission to improve the health and wellness of our community. During the volunteer week, you will support adolescents ages 11-18 in a week-long journey incorporating education around nutrition, fitness, and healthy lifestyles. As a camp counselor, you will directly foster the growth of camp participants, offering individualized attention in structured group programming. Opportunities exist for you to develop mentored relationships, skill development (including leadership, accountability, teamwork, and communication), and an experiential foundation for transition to the workforce.

This is an opportunity for motivated adults over the age of 19 to augment their education and career preparation in a variety of fields, including nutrition/dietetics, athletics/physical education, pediatrics and adolescent weight management. For example, students interested in nutrition can help campers personalize nutrition plans at camp and at home and help lead nutrition education sessions, mentored by a registered dietitian. A kinesiology major may help campers modify physical activities to their ability and set exercise goals, mentored by a collegiate swim coach. Students interested in behavioral health can learn how risk factors impact health and weight in adolescents while they work with campers individually under the mentorship of a pediatric psychologist. This is also a great opportunity to build a resume through experience, service hours, and letters of recommendation preparing for graduate school.
