The Jett Foundations Camp Promise is in need of volunteers!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Jett Foundation, Inc.

The mission of Camp Promise is to provide a barrier-free, weeklong overnight camp for kids, teens, and adults with muscular dystrophy or select neuromuscular diseases--regardless of age, capability, or ability to pay. Our camper-focused programming builds independence, confidence, and life skills through traditional camp activities and by bringing campers new experiences through adaptation, technology, creativity, and special guests.

We are a welcoming community where campers learn from and support each other, fostering new and lasting friendships that extend beyond camp. We are committed to providing Camp Promise in a professional, safe, and respectful environment with a leadership team, trained volunteers, and licensed medical staff who support the needs of each and every camper.

Volunteers are the backbone of Camp Promise. From cabin counselors to medical, program, and logistics teams, our camps are fully staffed by volunteers. This is part of our mission, as it allows us to provide camp free of charge to all of our campers.

As a volunteer, you will be responsible for caring for campers, delivering the magic of camp, and stretching the realm of possibility for our campers. Volunteering at Camp Promise is a life-changing experience and every year we recruit and select highly motivated, enthusiastic, and energetic individuals from all over the country. Strong volunteers are mature and responsible individuals who like working hard as part of a team and who are willing to learn.

Camp Promise volunteers come from all over the country and have diverse backgrounds, so whatever your skills may be, if you are committed to making camp the best week of our campers' year, we'd love to hear from you!
