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.
This was my third camp volunteering with The Laurel Foundation and I had an absolute blast!
The people really are a family there from the campers that return year after year to the incredible staff they have. It truly is unlike any camp I've ever worked for, and I've worked at plenty. Volunteer with The Laurel Foundation and you'll do more that just join the team, you'll become part of an incredible family.

The Laurel Foundation is one of the best places I have ever worked. Its obvious that all the volunteers and staff care deeply about the mission of The Laurel Foundation and about the kids and families they serve. Camp Laurel is a special place thats almost impossible to describe. It has all the typical summer camp activities- kayaking, archery, hiking, arts & crafts- but the love and care that the volunteers exude during camp really sets it far apart from any other camp I've been a part of. About 75% of The Laurel Foundation volunteers are returners, which makes being a part of Camp Laurel like being a part of a family. Its a difficult, exhausting, fun, and fantastic experience that I'm so incredibly blessed to have been a part of!
