Camp Laurel - Winter Family Camp
Dates: February 18-22, 2022
Location: Mountain Center, CA
Training Dates: February 5 & 6
Training Location: Pasadena

*Our residential camps will be following all protocols and procedures set by local and state officials to keep the risk of COVID at a minimum. We will also be following guidelines set by the American Camp Association.*

The Laurel Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children, youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS and transgender/gender diverse youth (Camp Mulberry). Camp Laurel is reserved for our children and youth affected with HIV/AIDS ages 6-17. We are looking for enthusiastic male volunteers who want to make a difference. If you love to help others, make life-long friendships, and expand your horizons, then apply to become a camp counselor!!


The Camp is located in beautiful Mountain Center, California. Our programs enable children living with HIV/AIDS to experience the magic and wonders of childhood free from the stresses of their daily lives. Through love, compassion and hope, Camp Laurel teaches children to understand that each one of them has the ability to make their life as full and rich as the next child’s regardless of this illness.



Serving as a Camp Laurel Camp Counselor is a rewarding and challenging experience, one that many volunteers return to year after year. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, have some prior experience working with children, be comfortable working with adults and children with HIV/AIDS, and have lots of energy. Experience with resident camps and HIV/AIDS is helpful but is not necessary.



"Camp is a time to forget about the worries in our own lives and make a child smile! It is a time to just be silly and send out some good love and get some back!"

-- Lorenzo, Camp Counselor - 52 Camps

Mission Statement

Committed to improving the lives of children living with HIV and AIDS, we believe that every child has the right to experience the wonder of childhood. Through our programs we strive to contribute to the development of each child’s self esteem, self-awareness and self-fulfillment. The mission of The Laurel Foundation is to empower children, youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS through educational and support programs in a safe and trusting environment. While HIV/AIDS is often an isolating illness because of negative social stigma and the sickness or loss of a parent, The Laurel Foundation aims to eradicate this isolation through a comprehensive approach, including residential camps, mentorship, life enhancement workshops, ongoing support programs and collaborative partnerships.
