Recruiting Organization: Camp Casco

ABOUT CAMP CASCO

Camp Casco builds community for childhood cancer patients, survivors, and families in New England through amazing camp experiences. We create a space for kids to reclaim their childhood- to laugh and play. All of our campers have been affected by childhood cancer, and this unifying environment is liberating. At camp, cancer instantly becomes the least remarkable thing about you - a welcome relief for those who have felt defined by this label in everyday life.

Research shows that summer camps for children with cancer reduce disease-related anxiety, improve self-image, increase independence, build social skills, and ultimately improve psychosocial outcomes. We provide these benefits to New England kids free-of-cost, giving patients, survivors, and siblings the chance to make lasting memories and build lifelong friendships.


CALLING ALL CHANGE-MAKERS

We’re creating a small group of dedicated volunteers ages 21-40 who are:

- Out-of-the-box thinkers who aren’t afraid to get creative

- Willing to attend occasional in-person events in Boston, MA (following all COVID safety guidelines)

- Driven to get things done and create meaningful change

- Able to both take the lead and work collaboratively as appropriate

- Excited to be part of a team with other like-minded young professionals

- Committed to volunteering 3-5 hours per week over the next year

- Interested in using their talents and engaging their networks to improve the lives of childhood cancer patients and survivors


GROW PERSONALLY & PROFESSIONALLY

In our short history, we’ve learned that there’s nothing a committed, passionate group of young people can’t achieve together.

As a Committee, we’ll work together throughout the year to raise $15,000 in creative new ways, expanding our brand awareness, increasing our resources, and ultimately allowing us to expand our programs to support 30% more childhood cancer families in 2022.

As a Young Professional, you’ll build skills, grow your network, gain leadership experience, and add quantifiable metrics to your resume, all while making a difference for childhood cancer patients, survivors, and families.

And, as an organization founded on the incredible power of community, we’ll reach these goals by creating an inclusive and collaborative environment across our YPC team - starting on Day 1. Join us, and let’s grow together!
