SUMMER CAMP VOLUNTEERS – (Individuals and Groups)
Easterseals has numerous camp volunteer opportunities. Our six week summer camps in Berks and Lehigh Valley serves over 200 children and young adults each year. In addition, our residential camp Growing Green located in the Pocono Mountains serves an additional 125 campers. Campers enjoy a variety of activities throughout the day from sports to arts & crafts and everything in between. Volunteers assist the counselors in facilitating activities and working with campers. In addition, we have opportunities for individuals or groups with special talents who would like to to come to camp and put on a special presentation or performance.
With a camp and a medical clinic in Reading, we can always use the help of skilled contractors, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, painters, tillers, pavers, earthmovers, and other skilled and semi-skilled experts. We also have the regular need for help with other important jobs like grounds clean-up and maintenance.
We offer opportunities for volunteers experienced in public relations, marketing, advertising, accounting, finance, banking and other related areas to serve on important committees that help advance Easterseals. We can always use capable individuals to help the office staff and managers. Naturally, our fundraising committees can use help in many areas, from potential donor identification to letter writing. Not to mention the need for excellent and dedicated board members.
Easterseals has a need for volunteers to work at fundraising functions, stewardship events or other large gatherings. Throughout the year, we need volunteers to help staff information tables we set up at various community events.
