Camp Laurel - Summer Camp Dates: August 7-14, 2021 Location: Big Bear Training Dates: TBA Training Location: Pasadena
The Laurel Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children, youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS and transgender/gender diverse youth. 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 Big Bear, 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!"
The mission of The Laurel Foundation is to empower children, youth and families affected by HIV/AIDS, transgender youth, and the at-risk youth population through educational and support programs in a safe and trusting environment.The Laurel Foundation’s programs tackle the emotional and social challenges at-risk children and youth face by constructing environments that support the mental and physical welfare of the participants. Our programs give participants the tools to build self-sufficient, productive, healthy lives.
Our volunteers will be camp counselors for our residential camp. We need wacky, high-energy, and motivated individuals for camp counselors. These are people that are role-models in their community and among their peers. All volunteers will be provided with food and housing for the entire camp. Must be 18 years old and a high school graduate.
