Camp High Five is looking for volunteers! What is Camp High Five? Camp High Five is a camp experience for children affected by HIV/AIDS. During camp, children are able to participate in a range of recreational activities such as: canoeing, biking, seining, hiking, nature walks, and so much more! They get to meet up with old friends and make new ones. Camp is an opportunity for kids to just be kids at no cost to them or their families.

Children and adolescents who are living with HIV/AIDS--and those who have infected residential relatives--experience fear, hopelessness, depression, low self-esteem, anger, lack of communication, the inability to properly resolve conflict and emotional outbursts.
